Blighted maps are versions of existing maps but without any native monsters. Instead, these maps have a difficult Blight encounter.

The map always have alternative map icon, as well as the implicit Natural inhabitants of this area have been removed
Area is infested with Fungal Growths
.

Regular Blight encounters in map have a chance to drop a Blighted version of a map. Blighted maps only contain a small area with no enemies and a single Fungal Growth that spawns dozens of roots. The player must defend the pump for 5 minutes, then defeat all remaining enemies. Players get extended prep time and pump durability increased to 20.

These maps can also be annointed, adding a variety of unique modifiers, including extra experience and significant boosts to rewards.

If you fail the blight encounter, it will not count as a map completion.

Blighted map cannot use with map fragments. The map fragments will not be consumed so that no additional change in map quantity.

Strategy

Blighted maps have a large amount of enemies and a large amount of resources for tower building. The same strategies that work on smaller Blights in maps will be useful, but more tower building and killing will be involved.

Party - Any player can build towers in a party. This can make it easier to build more towers when you have more players.
