While Afflatus Misery is activated, the most recent damage the player sustains will be recorded up to a limit determined by the character's level. This damage amount will determine the bonus value granted to specific spells. Unlike Afflatus Solace, it is non-cumulative and overwriting.
While under the effect of Afflatus Misery, the player gains a bonus to the following spells:
- Cura: increases potency.
- Esuna: bonus to the number and variety of enfeebling effects removed.
- Auspice: adds Light damage to initial attacks and an Accuracy bonus when target is missed.
- Banish spells: increases potency.
