  • All boons granted are per hit, allowing up to 5 applications when 5 targets are hit.
  • The Defiance Break tooltip sums up the two exclusive stuns instead of correctly displaying the range-dependent value.
  • The tooltip states 10 seconds of Quickness.png Quickness is granted while the actual duration is only 5 seconds.
This skill is listed as applying Stun but actually applies "Chilled to the Bone!".png Reaper's Frost, which functions the same as Stun.
