Toxic Lash
When active, melee strikes burst spores causing them to spread to nearby enemies.
Strength:20% / 22% / 26% / 30% (damage bonus)
25% / 30% / 35% / 40% (damage reduction)
Duration:20 / 22 / 25 / 30 s

  • Saryn imbues her melee weapon with potent toxins, adding 20% / 22% / 26% / 30% of the melee weapon's total damage as Toxin b Toxin damage with a 100% status chance to every strike over a duration of 20 / 22 / 25 / 30 seconds.
    • Damage bonus is affected by Ability Strength.
    • Toxin b Toxin status effect deals 50% of the bonus damage per tick over 11 ticks in 10 seconds. Duration-based status effects are prolonged due to Saryn's passive.
    • Toxic Lash adds damage to every melee strike calculated from Saryn's total melee weapon damage before damage resistances are applied. (e.g., with a maxed Intensify and a melee weapon that inflicts 300 total damage before damage resistances are factored, a rank-3 Toxic Lash will add 300 × 0.3 × 1.3 = 117 Toxin b Toxin damage to each strike).
    • The additional Toxin b Toxin damage is treated as a separate instance of damage and does not combine with elemental damage on the melee weapon.
    • Duration is affected by Ability Duration.
  • While active, Toxic Lash enhances the melee weapon's damage reduction during blocking by an additional 25% / 30% / 35% / 40%.
    • Damage reduction is affected by Ability Strength.
    • The damage reduction stacks additively with the melee weapon's damage reduction during blocking, and the sum cannot exceed 90% under any circumstances (e.g., with a maxed Intensify and a melee weapon that grants 35% damage reduction during blocking, a rank-3 Toxic Lash will increase the damage reduction to 0.35 + 0.4 × 1.3 = 87%).
  • Saryn's abilities mutate for bonus effects when used in tandem:

  • While Toxic Lash is active, at least one spore is guaranteed to burst per melee attack when an enemy affected by Spores is struck by Saryn's melee weapon.
  • Enemies infected with Spores will restore 2 energy to Saryn for each spore burst by Toxic Lash.

  • Miasma deals an additional 100% damage to enemies affected by Toxin b Toxin status effects including those produced by Toxic Lash.
    • Embolist or Acrid may be also used to inflict the toxin status effect, due to their innate 100% chance to proc a Toxin b Toxin status effect.

  • Toxic Lash is a one-handed action. As such, it can be used while performing various maneuvers and actions without interruption.
  • Recasting Toxic Lash while the ability is active will refresh its duration.
  • Saryn is immune to crowd control during the cast animation.
  • Has a ~1 second cast time.

Tips & Tricks
  • This is a good candidate for Narrow Minded since there is no Ability Range,
  • The percentage of Toxin damage granted is multiplied by Ability Strength.
    • The exact amount of Toxin damage is equal to the percentage multiplied by the weapon's base damage, after base damage modifications (e.g., Pressure Point) are applied.
  • Toxic Lash is an invaluable ability for players who were not able to collect a Melee Toxin mod or not capable of equipping such on Melee weapons, in which the ability becomes a suitable replacement for those in need of direct health damage.
  • Using a hammer with the Shattering Storm stance equipped will make it easy to pop Spores while Toxic Lash is active, due to the ground slam attacks of the stance's combos.
