Trial of Lingering Pain is one of the six Trials of Ascendancy. It can be found at random during mapping (by using The Dream TrialThe Dream TrialThe depths of a dream hide a gauntlet that sharpens the body and mind.You will discover a Trial of Ascendancy in a map.Right-click to add this prophecy to your character.Seal Cost:

prophecy, the player can increase the odds of spawning it inside the map). The "easier" versions --which are no longer referred to as "Trial of Lingering Pain"-- can be found in The Catacombs (Act 3) and The Tunnel (Act 9).

The Trial features Blade Sentries, which are very wide traps that move along set paths. The damage is proportional, and does not depend on area level; when the player character is cut by the moving traps, they rapidly take Energy Shield and Health damage (which can kill underspecced, non-Bleed immune players in roughly one second) The Trial's layout, however, does become harder on higher difficulties.

Upon completing the Trial, Izaro gives the message "An emperor must wear two blades. Hope in the left hand, Surety in the right." and you are provided with a portal back to the entrance.
