* ShouldersOfDoom: While most shoulderplates are much more modest than those in ''WorldOfWarcraft'', several do exist in this game, the most iconic being the ''[[NonindicativeName Graceful]]'' Shoulderplates model, which is nearly as wide as the character is tall, minus the flames spewing out. Some shoulderplates even have [[SpikesofDoom spikes]].

** Averted with the 3.0 Ascension update, where Empyrean Lords Israphel, Marchutan, and Kaisinel appear in-game in campaign quests with their faces shown explicitly, [[spoiler:as do Nezekan and Triniel in 4.0.]] ** In 4.0, Marchutan and Kaisinel achieve NPC status and can be freely spoken to in their respective beacons in Katalam.

However they played this straight again with the removal of Katalam and Danaria/South Katalam in patch 4.8, along with all content that allowed players to interact with these Empyrean Lords.

* ChekhovMIA: [[spoiler: Belbua]]. We first hear of his disappearance with a level 12 quest given by his nephew. A level 39 quest has you rescue him. Backtracking to tell his nephew the good news gets you a [[NotActuallyCosmeticAward title]] called [[BigDamnHeroes Big]] [[ShoutOut Damn]] [[{{Firefly}} Hero]].

* CriticalHit: The chances of this happening can be improved by [[SocketedEquipment socketing critial strike manastones]] on top of equipment bonuses, up to a maximum of 50% critical chance. Different types of wewapon have varying base critical damage multiplier - for example, daggers have 100 base crit strike (10% crit chance) and 2.3x critical damage multiplier, while greatswords only have 10 base crit strike (1% chance) and 1.8x critical multiplier.

* CriticalHit: The chances of this happening can be improved with gear choice (i.e. using a dagger instead of a sword, or choosing armor with better crit stat bonuses). Can also be improved by [[SocketedEquipment socketing the right stones]]. * CriticalHitClass: Assassins and Rangers. To a lesser extent, any other class that dishes out physical damage.

* AgonyBeam: Damage over Time (dot) skills are mostly this, but special mention goes to Songweavers' Paean of Pain for having it in the skill name.

* ArtifactOfDoom: One of the lower-level Asmodian campaigns deals with destroying one of these. It is never mentioned ever again.

* BackgroundMagicField: Played with. Daevas rely on Aether to use their powers and stay immortal. Aether is Aion's (God's) own life essence, and He personally handpicked the first Daevas--His twelve [[ReligionIsMagic most devoted humans]]. However, Aion imbued Aether into the Tower of Eternity, which shattered in the world-sundering Cataclysm and is now hemorrhaging Aether everywhere.

* BarrierMaiden: The Elyos Kimeia is this for Sataloca's heart.

* TheBeautifulElite: In-universe, Daevas hold the highest positions in society, and ascending (becoming a Daeva) is canonically said to make the human in question unbelievably beautiful.

* CatchPhrase: Depends on race. ** Asmodians have "Azphelumbra" ("May the Lord Azphel embrace you with His Darkness") and "Blood for Blood". ** Elyos have "Arieluma" ("May the Lady, Ariel, surround you with Her Light") and "Faith and Arms". ** Reians have "My eyes to your eyes".

* HumanResources: [[spoiler:The Lepharists become guilty of this later on, at least in Asmodae.]]

Wrong trope. Moved entry about Reians to Our Angels Are Different.
* OneWingedAngel: The Reians. Unlike other daevas, their wings are useless and they usually appear folded together to one side, so they even look like they have only one wing. * OurAngelsAreDifferent: Daevas are exceptional Elyos and Asmodians, capable of manipulating aether to a degree previously only seen by the Empyrean Lords. In return for dedicating their existence to their people, they become immortal.
