Afflictions Guide

Afflictions grant various downsides to your Sanctum run and can reduce or prevent Resolve recovery, spawn additional traps, buff monsters, affect your Aureus generation, or hide rooms or rewards on the Sanctum Map.

Afflicted rooms are indicated by a purple border, and improve the room’s mechanics but causes the character to gain an Affliction.

Afflicted Reward Room: Contains improved rewards, but causes an Affliction.

Afflicted Fountain: Afflicted Fountain rooms contain an interactable Afflicted Fountain which grants Recover #% of Maximum Resolve, but also inflicts a random Affliction on you.
