- Concise description
Environment Effect. You have -5 Health degeneration. Miasma spreads between creatures of the same kind.
- Miasma can be found in the Zen Daijun mission and explorable area, the Isle of Meditation guild hall, and the Shing Jea Arena map.
- Because Miasma only spreads between creatures of the same kind, it will not spread between non-human heroes (Jora, M.O.X, Ogden Stonehealer, Pyre Fierceshot, Vekk, and Zhed Shadowhoof) and the rest of the party. Miasma cannot be removed by the players themselves, but it can be removed with Blessing of the Kirin cast by Zunraa.
- In the middle ages there was a theory that disease was spread through the air, in a poisonous, foul smelling vapor, known as miasma.
