An "Aftermath" is a buff caused by using the correct Weapon Skills while wearing a Relic, Mythic, or Empyrean Weapon. Each category of weapon has a different aftermath structure, and the specific Aftermath can vary from weapon to weapon:
No form of TP Bonus influences Aftermath duration or effect.
Relic, Mythic, and Empyrean Aftermaths have three Tiers:
- Level 1 - Can and will overwrite itself.
- Level 2 - Can overwrite Level 1, but not itself.
- Level 3 - Can overwrite Level 1 or Level 2, but not itself
In addition to duration and potency, these tiers determine which Aftermath can overwrite the current one.
