If you’ve done any Onslaughts within the last few days, you’ve undoubtedly noticed the new, temporary anti-botting defense mechanism Trion has added to Storm Legion Onslaughts. Basically, if you stay in one spot long enough, a tear-looking AoE circle will appear beneath your feet that does considerable damage. The circles tend to be quite random, so it’s possible to see them appear as you’re merely running through an Onslaught that’s under attack. You can also have one appear when you’re drinking between invasions or even while you’re upgrading a turret, relay, or lifespring.
Trion’s taken notice of the last part, thankfully, and will be making a change in the next hotfix that will allow players to use Nexus Infusion to upgrade Onslaught turrets, relays, and lifesprings while on the move. Here’s the announcement, which was posted by Elrar yesterday on the official forums:

Thought you’d like to be the first to know – in the next Hot Fix we’re planning to make Nexus Infusion not be cancelled by movement. Meaning you can continue to channel the ability while dodging AoE’s permitting you don’t go out of range.
Thanks for the feedback, cheers!
If you’d like to provide Trion with any thoughts on the new AoE mechanism, this post was taken from a feedback thread regarding the recent addition to Onslaughts (also, our comments section works again finally– hooray!).
