  • The projectile finisher on Mortar Shot requires that the actual projectile pass through a target, merely hitting a target with the projectile's explosion will not create a combo effect.
  • Actual activation time for each skill is 0.8 seconds.
Unlike other kits, the Elite Mortar Kit can't be equipped in midair.
