Notes[edit]

  • When you use this skill your pet is buffed with Blood Thirst for 11 seconds.
  • Blood Thirst is applied when you activate the skill, not when its projectile hits a target.
  • The skill's bleeding fact is incorrect. It does not inflict bleeding, and the bleeding from Blood Thirst is 5 seconds, not 6.

Trivia[edit]

  • A Guild Wars skill bears the same name as this skill.
  • Before Beta Weekend Event 2, the first sentence of the description of this skill used to be "Shatter your foe's dreams of becoming an adventurer with a single arrow to the knee." This was a reference to a line of dialogue in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, wherein its town guards profess that they "used to be an adventurer", until they "took an arrow in the knee."
