In casting Wild Entropy, the Ranger draws upon their affinity to Nature and its inevitable cycle to cause damage and diminish the target's resistance to attacks that deal Nature damage (such as Sun Burst (609), Moonbeam (611), and Spike Thorn (616)).

The spell deals initial disintegration-based Nature damage followed by 4 additional cycles of minor damage at 2-second intervals.

Each instance of damage inflicts a negative Nature resistance effect with a magnitude of 10, with additional based on training in Spiritual Lore, Summoning. This debuff stacks with diminishing returns equal to half of the previous magnitude (10 + 5 + 2 + 1 + 0 ...). The duration of the debuff is a refreshable 30 seconds.

On a successful cast of the spell at a target that is already affected by Wild Entropy, any remaining damage cycles will immediately fire.
