— In-game description


  • This skill fires its blades from the Virtuoso's position at the end of the cast, meaning you could  Blink.png Blink away and the blades will still fire from that initial spot.
  • This skill fires all its blades at once rather than in rapid succession.
  • This skill requires a target to cast and requires facing the target to cast.
    • You are not required to face the target the entire cast, just the beginning of it.
