Apply different combinations of elemental damage to enemies suffering from an elemental status effect to trigger a Critical Extinguish. Critical Extinguishes deal additional damage.
When the debuffs applied by elemental abilities and weapons react with each other, this causes both debuffs to eliminate ("extinguish") each other, dealing a hefty amount of damage in exchange. This is known as a "critical extinguish", an "elemental crit" or an "elemental reaction".
The diagram below details the various extinguishes possible.
