Patch Changes
October 01, 2019
  • Removed the Crippling Throw follow-up skill. This skill no longer automatically uses Counterattack Kick when blocking a foe within the range threshold. Instead, blocking any attack flips the skill to Counterattack Kick for 5 seconds. Increased the number of targets for Counterattack Kick from 1 to 3. Counterattack Kick now evades for its duration and activates faster.
July 23, 2013
  • This skill can now be used while moving.
  • Increased the cripple duration to 5 seconds.
August 28, 2012 Game release:
  • Crippling Throw has been added to the game.
