Mastermind of Discord is a Notable Ascendancy passive skill for the Elementalist that grants elemental penetration based on the element keyword of a skill you used in the past 4 seconds.


Whenever use a skill with an element keyword ("Fire", "Ice", "Lightning"), you will gain penetration based on the keyword of the skill (Cold, Lightning, and Fire Penetration, respectively).

Mastermind of Discord will only check the Keyword of the skill to determine what type of penetration you receive, even if the damage gets converted to a different element. However, Elemental Hit skill icon.pngElemental Hit and Wild Strike skill icon.pngWild Strike should only grant one type of penetration based on the element chosen on attack (In theory, needs confirmation?).
