Notes[edit]

  • Throws projectile blades at up to 5 nearby foes, dealing damage over time to those they hit. Affected foes can then be pulled using the associated sequence skill, but this ends the damage over time effect.
  • Multiple projectiles can hit the same target if they intercept the projectiles or the skill is used while on top of their character model.
  • This skill does not affect epic rank foes.
  • This skill can hit targets in stealth.
  • If the foe dodges when the pull is activated, they will not be pulled the full distance.
  • This skill will proc the whirl finisher one time.
  • Damage over time component is determined by the following formula:
(0.2 * Power) + 2 * Level damage per second.
(0.2 * Power) + 160 damage per second at Level 80 and (0.1 * Power) + 160 damage per second at Level 80 in PVP and WVW
The damage-over-time effect of this skill is unaffected by Vulnerability.
