This page is about the game mechanic. For the map area, see Shrine Map.
A shrine

Shrines can appear randomly in most areas, granting significant bonuses to nearby monsters or casts spells at nearby players, and are often guarded by monsters. Players can steal the shrine to gain its bonuses for 45 seconds or until leaving the area. Players can have any number of different shrine effects at once. This encounter is considered Extra Content and has a chance to appear in any map area or most story areas; it also has separate chances to spawn additional shrines. The specific chance for shrines to spawn has never been officially published. This mechanic is also referred to as Domination.

Shrine types

There are two kinds of shrines: Buff and Spell; Buff shrines grants buffs to affected monsters, players, the player's nearby party members. Spell shrines cast spells around themselves or affected players, but do not originate from the player and thus are unaffected by their mods.
