Tips and Details

  • The seed goes up one phase every time an enemy lands a hit.
    • As enemies in dungeons attack fairly slowly, their threat coming from either high damage single hits or sheer numbers, the seed is very unlikely to advance a lot of phases before it explodes.
    • In PvP however, it is great for pressuring opponents out of attacking you, as the damage of the seed and the eventual defense decrease would cripple them.
  • The seed's damage will not inflict any hitstun outside of the first hit, which plants the seed during the explosion, and the final hit, which gets rid of it.
  • The damage the Demon Realm Seed can deal over its lifespan is anywhere between 780% ~ 10,790% (180% ~ 2,490% in PvP) Physical Damage, based on how many phases the seed is able to advance. The seed will always deal 1 hit at Phase 1 as it is set, but it is theoretically possible for all other 11 hits to deal Phase 15 damage due to a very quick multihit attack.
  • The seed deals splash damage in a very small radius around it, allowing it to deal more damage on tightly grouped enemies.


  • This skill was featured as a consumable summoning item during Demonio's pre-event.
