General information[]

Acid mist destroys enemy weapon and armor durability on impact. Aside from its effect, it is identical to Poison Mist in terms of casting times, animation, etc.


This pyromancy has no place in PvE. It is also very rarely seen in PvP due to its long casting time and the ease in which enemies can avoid the cloud. However, it can be useful for area denial and for concealing the user's next attack.
