An instrument of unrelenting harm.

The Lesion is an Infested polearm based on the Tipedo. Upon inflicting a Status Effect on its target, the Lesion gains bonuses to its Attack Speed and guaranteed Toxin b Toxin procs, which coupled with its primary focus on Slash b Slash damage makes it a dangerous weapon against lightly-armored targets.

This weapon can be sold for Credits646,000.

Characteristics Edit

This weapon deals primarily Slash b Slash damage.

Advantages

  • Second highest base damage of all polearms, behind Kesheg.
  • Highest status chance of all polearms.
  • Medium range attacks with a wide radius.
  • Has an innate attack speed increase and bonus Toxin b Toxin damage upon landing a successful attack with a status proc.
    • Additional Toxin b Toxin damage added will combine with any primary elements (or secondary elements with Toxin b Toxin) on the weapon.
  • Stance slot has Zenurik Pol polarity, matches Shimmering Blight stance.
  • Has a Madurai Pol polarity.

Disadvantages

  • Low Impact b Impact and Puncture b Puncture damage – less effective against shields and armor.
  • Very low critical chance.
  • Shortest attack range of all polearms.
  • Very small slam attack radius.

NotesEdit

  • On dealing status procs on an enemy, the Lesion has a unique feature whereby it gains 15% additional attack speed for 6 seconds, as well as 100% Toxin b Toxin damage.
    • Attack speed buff is additive to attack speed mods on the weapon.
    • This buff does not stack with repeated status procs.
    • This buff duration is not refreshed upon inflicting procs while the buff is still active. The buff must first expire before another instance can be activated.
    • The Toxin b Toxin damage is additive to other elemental mods on the weapon.

TipsEdit

  • Can reach 100% status with Volcanic Edge, Vicious Frost, Voltaic Strike, and Virulent Scourge making it a strong contender for Condition Overload.
  • The weapon's Toxin b Toxin buff synergizes well with Corrosive b Corrosive, Gas b Gas, or Viral b Viral builds.
  • Synergizes well with Saryn: her passive increases the duration of status procs by 25% (adding to their total damage) and Toxic Lash guarantees procs along while adding even more Toxin b Toxin damage.
  • The Attack Speed buff along with the weapon's high status chance allows the Lesion to proc multiple statuses quickly, good for limited crowd control and/or Condition Overload.

TriviaEdit

  • Lesion is any abnormal damage or change in an organism's tissue, usually the result of injury or disease. It is derived from the Latin word laesio, which simply means "injury".
  • Though looking quite similar to the Tipedo (the Lesion's crafting component) in design and length, the Lesion uses Polearm stances while the Tipedo is a staff.
  • The Lesion has a non-static model; the "jaws" of the weapon close when not actively equipped, will open upon being wielded, and without a Stance equipped, the jaws will visibly "bite" on the thrusting second and fourth strikes of the combo.
