  • Reduces Skill Cooldown: This trait is pretty self-explanatory. It simply reduces the time taken to use your skills again. The time of reduction is 2 seconds which is fine for 1 stack. Since this stacks further to +1 second per stack, it is a very handy item to stack in your inventory.
  • The second part is the Unfavorable Outcome. This is a penalty trait for the lunar item. What this means is that it will mostly have a negative impact on your items and inventory. This is termed as You are unlucky”

How to use Purity

  • To understand how to use purity, you need to know how it negatively affects other items.
  • For example, if we take ATG Missile Mk.1. which has a 10% chance of activation per hit. The purity will reduce the chance of that happening to 1%. That is because Purity enables this chance to roll twice. If both times it is 10%, then only you will get 10%. Otherwise, the calculation goes like 10% x 10% = 1%
  • So, to sum it up, the chance of missing lowers the chance of activating an item. And the more stacks of purity you have, the lower will be the activation chances.

Keep in mind the Miss chances and the instances of Activation, and if possible calculate the probability, as shown above, to understand the item activations and usability in runs.
