Chaos damage is a damage type that is neither physical nor elemental.

Lorewise, it is most often associated with Lyssa and as such inflicted by Mesmers.

Non-randomly generated Energy Storage weapons can also inflict chaos damage, probably suggesting that they deal damage from all elemental types at the same time.


  • Chaos damage is not armor-ignoring; it is non-physical, non-elemental damage which uses the normal damage calculations.

  • According to the developers, nothing in the game currently checks for chaos damage, making chaos damage functionally identical to dark damage.
