Notes[edit]

  • Swoop will trigger its finisher twice. Once at the start, once at the end.
  • Having swiftness or a movement speed boost such as Signet of the Hunt will cause the distance of the sprint portion of this skill to be extended, effectively increasing this skill's maximum range ( about 150 ) and decreasing the activation time.
  • This will cause the ranger to sprint toward the target. When the ranger is halfway between their start point and the target, they will leap toward the target, jumping over small obstacles. The ranger will also leap if continuing to sprint would cause them to run off a cliff.
  • During the first 1/2 second of this skill's activation time, the ranger can sprint off a cliff without leaping. They will continue sprinting downward in the original direction until they reach the maximum range, or hit the ground. If they hit the ground, they will continue sprinting in the target's direction until they are within half the original distance of their target, then the ranger will leap toward the target.
  • If the ranger goes through a portal or anything that forcibly teleports them somewhere else, they will stay in one spot at the destination. This continues until the activation bar reaches the end, then the ranger will leap 550 units in the direction they are now facing.
Sometimes the animation of this skill is still visible after the skill is ended.It will disappear only if you leave the area or the istance where it bugged.
