  • The attack occurs in two phases:
  1. Creates a point-blank area of effect smoke cloud which blinds enemies in the area when created and then pulsing blind once per 2 seconds while the field lasts.
  2. The projectile attack occurs after the smoke cloud is created, meaning it becomes a combo attack and blinds its target (unless another combo field was placed prior to smoke field, in which case the projectile will combo with that field).

If Heartseeker is used in this field, you gain stealth for 3 seconds.


  • This is one of the few skills that can combo with itself.
