Guide to Aspects
Aspects in Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem is a special mechanic of the game that allows the player’s character to temporarily transform into a pristine being or apocalyptic form. There is a total of four Aspects that players can choose from, and each aspect contains its unique set of skills and abilities that can be executed on the battlefield and while you are in the chosen apocalyptic form. This guide covers a list of all the Aspects that are shown in the game.
How to Unlock an Aspect?
The first aspect can be unlocked near the end of Chapter 1, you’ll be given the opportunity to unlock and choose your first aspect, however, as you progress through the game, you can unlock other aspects and players can switch other aspects at any given time once you’ve obtained a new one.
Using an Aspect
In order to shift into your chosen aspect, you’ll have to collect and have enough Primordial Essence to fill its meter, and you can obtain this by killing monsters. Once it is full, press [R], and you’ll shift into your apocalyptic form, the meter will then begin to deplete over time and you’ll revert back to your original form once it’s empty.
Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem Aspects
Aspect of Dawn
Commanding the battlefield as a beacon of blinding light, the Primordial of Dawn carries the hopes of humanity as she charges into the fallen hordes. With her essence infused into the First movement of Life, her believers stand steadfast, smiting all traces of corruption under her holy rays.
Aspect of War
Many of the Fallen indulge in the joys of destruction, but Baäpheth aims for something higher: strategy combined with skill in the service of absolute conquest. He splits the battlefield in twain with the flames of war, dispatching enemies in large swaths. All who stand in the way must fall before his violent ambitions.
Aspect of Infinity
The fabric of the world bends under his will, warping his enemies into cracks in space and time. The divine powers of Anulai-Tai were born from a need to fight existential power, and from that day he was the one to cast fear upon others, contorting the bodies of his opponents with gravitational shifts.
Aspect of Flesh
The Aberrant burgeons over all available earth, tendrils of skin and flesh blooming to assuage an all-consuming desire. His followers are endless, for in accepting Ashtaroth, their bodies become limitless weapons of bone and tendon. They lie in wait, preparing to assimilate the world in their image.
