Farming Tips[]

Notes[]

  • Creates an extra instance of damage when proccing a status effect.
  • More than 1 status proc on a single hit (>100% Status chance) will properly add extra damage, but will be displayed as a single damage number.
  • Not affected by damage, element, physical, Mod TT 20px.png Galvanized Shot stacks, Mod TT 20px.png Synth Charge, or critical mods and bonuses.
  • Affected by faction mods and bonuses once.
  • Not affected by Eclipse130xDark.png Eclipse or GarudaIcon272.png Garuda's passive.
  • Triggers on DmgToxinSmall64.png Toxin procs by ToxicLash130xDark.png Toxic Lash.
  • Doesn't trigger on DmgVoidSmall64.png Void procs by Xata'sWhisper130xDark.png Xata's Whisper.
  • Affected by Damage Vulnerability like SentientWrath130xDark.png Sentient Wrath.
  • Not affected by weakspots, but is affected by enemy damage reduction. For example, striking a Nox in the face will still have Cascadia Empowered's damage reduced by its body's damage reduction.
  • Not affected by weapon falloff such as on shotguns and explosions.
  • Can proc off of FocusLensZenurik b.png Zenurik's FocusTemporalShot.png Temporal Shot bonus when used with SeekingTalons130xDark.png Seeking Talons.
  • Affected by Laetum.png Laetum's Devouring Attrition, which has a 50% chance to increase Cascadia Empowered's damage by 2000%, as its instance cannot crit.

Tips[]

  • Indirectly affected by Fire Rate and Multishot mods.
  • Unlike other secondary arcanes, Cascadia Empowered has no activation conditions, giving weapons more up-front damage to activate other conditional effects such as Mod TT 20px.png Galvanized Diffusion.
  • Most effective on weapons with high status proc rates (Status Chance per Pellet × Fire Rate × Innate Multishot × Explosions). In order of highest base burst proc rate, these include:
  • SeekingTalons130xDark.png Seeking Talons causes all hits to proc DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash, adding an extra instance of Cascadia Empowered to every hit from the secondary weapon, except for status ticks.
