  • Like  Unstable Bladestorm.png Unstable Bladestorm, this skill actually has an activation time despite not being listed in its tooltip, meaning it can be interrupted and it cannot be cast while casting other skills with an activation time.
  • When equipping a weapon that changes the animation effects of projectiles, the projectiles on this skill will briefly return back to their normal form when hitting the ground, or max distance, before turning back into the weapon's special projectile effect.
