Exposure required for tainting?

Exposure required for tainting?

Postby Thrair » Wed Aug 20, 2014 10:56 pm

Question's in the title: How much exposure to nether demons is required for one to become tainted?

They obviously feed off mana, but as Faen was in the comic getting nibbled on (possibly), yet is not yet tainted, it makes me wonder about the mechanism.

Is it like a virus, where all it takes is a small cut and source to become infected? Or do the seeds have to break down a fae's aura to a certain point (or having something else do that for them) in order to parasitize them?

You must be physically weakened to be tainted. Demons aren't a virus :P

Yah. I was using a virus as a metaphor.

Although, tainting can make zombies, so it's totally "The Virus" (as per TVTropes), even if it's not an actual virus. 8P

Shala told Ariel "the demon must enter your aura in order to taint you". So long as the demon is just eating from outside, the drow won't get tainted or possessed.
