Notes[edit]

  • One of the possible land transformations from the Endless Fractal Tonic.
  • Inquest Technician Chibb and Inquest Technician Greeza will create the Destabilized effect on the Anomaly.
  • Players who enter the central well of the Mystic Forge in Lion's Arch will be transformed to look like the Thaumanova Anomaly. This is purely a visual effect, and all skills are locked while transformed. The effect remains for as long as the player stays within the well of the Mystic Forge (moving to the very center will petrify the player and eject them from the Forge).
  • Thaumanova Anomaly has a 300 range diameter hitbox, which is considered large.
