Chaos damage

From Guild Wars Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Chaos damage is a damage type that is neither physical nor elemental. Lorewise, it is associated with Lyssa which in game terms means it is inflicted by Mesmers and non-randomly generated Energy Storage weapons.


  • 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 and typeless damage.
