Illumination aura is a legendary aura that was usable back in 2016 from 1 June to 8 September, boosting all base experience gained by an additional 10% while active; 100% on every fifth activation of the aura. The aura can be activated for up to an hour each day, resetting at 00:00 UTC. It stacks with bonus experience, Advanced pulse cores, clan avatars, and the wise perk.

The Illumination aura is a tier 5 aura, given as a replacement for the Enlightenment aura. Purchasers of the 2016 Summer Special were awarded an Illumination aura. However, Gold Premier Club 2016 members can retain the aura if they have had the aura during the summer promotion.[1]

Disassembling augmented equipment or Invention devices does not award bonus experience when using the aura. However, experience gained from researching new blueprints at an Inventor's workbench is benefited.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Before the release of the aura, it was planned to disable all experience bonuses during 10% activation and any bonus experience you would have earned would have been given as a lump of sum once the activation ends. During 100% activation all bonus experience usage would have been disabled entirely and would have not be given as a lump sum once the activation ends.
  • Players in Ironman Mode could obtain the Illumination aura to compete in the Summer HiScores list, but did not benefit from the aura's experience boosts.
  • While active, the Illumination aura displays a pair of wings and a gaze effect if the player has not overridden either cosmetic manually.
