Annihilation in New World is one of the two Skill Mastery trees available to the Void Gauntlet. The Annihilation tree allows players to conjure a powerful Void Blade to engage enemies in close-quarters, obliterating them with the power of the Void. The Annihilation tree employs a melee-centric combat style that relies on stacking its Disintegrate effect to deal sustained damage over a short period. The Annihilation tree also excels in debuffing and locking enemies down while bolstering allies.
- Void Gauntlets scale off of the Intelligence stat as a primary source of damage while also benefiting from Focus as a secondary damage stat and a modifier for healing abilities.
