Disengagement is a colorless mutation which provides the player with invincibility if they take too much damage.

Details[]

  • Special Effects:
    • When the player's health falls below 15%, a force field protects them for 5 seconds.
    • Triggers with darkness and poison damage, but does not protect against them.
  • Scaling: None

Notes[]

  • This mutation could be considered a direct upgrade to Ygdar Orus Li Ox, as it typically stops situations where the player would die while simultaneously not permanently taking up space in the mutation slots and being reusable.
  • Disengagement will actually heal the player up to 15% if the player is below 15% health, has allowed the cooldown time to pass, and then takes damage with the mutation active once again.
  • Does not seem to prevent death in cases where a single hit does enough damage to directly take the player all the way below 0% HP in one fell swoop; for example, if the player is at 25% HP and then takes a massive individual hit for ~30% damage.
