Notes[edit]

  • Using the mortar grants 2 minutes of stability. This stability ends immediately should the user abandon the mortar.
  • Like turrets, mortar skills cannot critically hit.
  • Traits which affect turrets do not affect Mortar, but Tool Kit skills can be used to repair it.
  • Mortar skills cannot glance.

Skills gained while using Mortar properly reflect the range increase from Elite Supplies but the Mortar skill itself does not.
