This Orb can be seen as a counterpart to the Orb of Aether, deploying a stationary hazard instead of casting an area of paralysis. Rather than impairing enemies, this orb is all about damage - dealing very heavy AoE damage over the beacon’s duration and Cursing those hit for a long time. As the cherry on top, it provides nice offensive boosts on equip, while also giving a good ATT buff every 30 seconds.
Like the Bottled Medusozoan and Sporous Spray Spell, it can inflict severe damage - dealing 1,500 damage while also applying curse. Also like them, positioning is important to use this Orb well, as the beacon cannot be redeployed until the old one vanishes. In addition, the 3 blasts aren’t identical, as they sequentially increase in damage/Curse duration but decrease in radius. Doing max damage is reliant on hitting all 3 blasts, so luring enemies may be advised. It also suffers against enemies with fast movement or frequent invulnerability periods, as the beacon may not be able to land all 3 blasts against them. In contrast, it’s highly effective against enemies that don’t move much.
The Orb of Conquest does not inflict Stasis or any form of crowd-control debuff. While this can be detrimental, it may also be beneficial in situations where Stasis is undesirable and can be easily traded out for high, wide-area DPS.
The beacon is marked on the minimap by a dark red dot and has the following sprite:
