The Chronovore Illustrated Framed Icon

The Chronovore is the Escalation Boss for Radiant Icon Radiant Escalation.

"Radiant aether is surging to uncontrollable levels as Orrery scientists attempt to claim Behemoth power as their own. Now, Behemoths from across the Shattered Isles are drawn to the surge, feeding on the aether and, in turn, being fed on by the surge's source: the soul reaping Chronovore."

The Chronovore weapons use a Bond instead of a Unique Effect and have a Legendary ability.

Legendary Ability: Activating your Chronovore weapon's legendary ability will draw on the temporal power of radiant aether to return you to wherever you were 3 seconds before activation and restore all health, stamina, and status effects to their previous state. Afterwards, you'll become invulnerable and gain increased move speed for 6 seconds.

Puzzle[ | ]

Unique to this escalation is a puzzle mechanic. As you progress through the first four arenas, look out for a glyph found in each arena. A puzzle platform, with four pillars, is located just before the final keystone arena.

Radiant Escalation Puzzle

The pillars are numbered (I, II, III, IIII) to correspond with the arena of each Escalation round. Slayers must match the glyphs found in each arena to successfully complete the puzzle. On solving the puzzle, a floating pyramid appears at the centre of the puzzle platform, which grants a final Amp. Slayers are also rewarded with 4 Chrono-Stone IconChrono-Stones for solving the puzzle.

Glyph Locations
Round 1 Arena I Before the exit of the arena, on the right wall
Round 2 Arena II On the left wall, at the entrance of the arena
Round 3 Arena III Located behind the Amp crystal
Round 4 Arena IIII To the left, on entering the arena

Glyph 1 Glyph 2 Glyph 3 Glyph 4 Glyph 5 Glyph 6

Additional Details:

  • Glyphs are randomised for each Escalation run, although their position in each arena is fixed.
  • Glyphs can be seen easily in a direct line-of-sight from the Amp crystal, except for Arena III.
  • Glyphs also have a peculiar sound effect, which can be heard by being in their close proximity.
  • The puzzle Amp grants only a single Amp option. The Extra Amp reward, received on reaching Escalation Level 15, does not increase the number of options for this final Amp.
