  • The activation of Blast Gyro Self-Destruct does not cause the notes listed in the tooltip, instead it uses the original skill with knockback and damage.
  • Therefore, this skill causes 332 Defiance bar damage, not just 100 like other Gyro detonations.
  • The damage from this skill originates from the Gyro itself, thus does not scale with player stats and barely crits.
  • Unlike the other gyro self-destruct skills, damage from this skill is displayed in the combat log.
  • Damage calculation for this skill, compared to the other self-destruct skills, includes a 1.5x modifier for base damage, resembling a critical hit. However, this skill can critically hit as well.
