Afflicted Ranger.jpg

The Afflicted are simply living creatures-animal, human, plant-that have had the misfortune to get too close to Shiro’s malevolent spirit. Those left unharmed refer to this “disease” as the Affliction and fear that, if left unchecked, it could become an epidemic. The Affliction is not contagious in this way, but considering the other more obvious dangers the creatures present, steering clear of the Afflicted is wise in most any case.

Anyone or anything could become Afflicted, which lends this so-called plague an even more terrifying aspect than any single, normal disease. The resulting mutations are unpredictable monstrosities with all of the combat strengths the original person or creature possessed, but altered and augmented in terrifying ways by the Affliction.

Once someone or something becomes Afflicted, there is no cure. Killing the Afflicted is the only way to give the tortured soul peace; hesitation or pity will only result in death—yours.

The Guild Wars Factions Manuscripts

The Afflicted are a collection of living beings turned into monsters by Shiro Tagachi's very presence and are suspected to be part of his army. They attack non-Afflicted beings (save for Shiro and his Shiro'ken) in their wake and are a very large group of antagonists in Guild Wars Factions.

  • Afflicted bosses are deliberately named after NPCs, to show how Shiro is using the plague to transform people into diseased creatures he can use as an army.[1]
