Tactics Tactics


  • This skill pierces.
  • Bladetrail's projectile will be destroyed on collision with a wall, meaning that there must be sufficient space behind your target for it to return and deal damage again.
  • The projectile travels along the ground, meaning it cannot hit targets on higher ledges or if there is a gap in the ground between the target and caster.
