Altar of Affliction

The Altar of Affliction is a game mechanic that applies a series of effects to make the game more challenging, in exchange for boosting the amount of Souls dropped by enemies and enabling the drop of Primordial Titanite from Bosses and The Trial of Perseverance.

Notes

  • All effects can be stacked.
  • Primordial Titanite drop rates from Bosses and the Trial of Perseverance is not affected by Item Discovery.
  • Primordial Titanite drops are separate for each curse, this means defeating a Boss or clearig a wave from the Trial can drop the item multiple times if more than one curse is enabled at the same time.
  • Primordial Titanite drops from Curses can be stacked with the No Hit Challenge for an additional drop from Bosses.
