— In-game description


The skill description is missing the number of targets skill fact.
  • This skill can hit 3 enemies at a time.
  • This skill behaves like a cleave attack, and so it will pass through any obstacle, including walls.
  • The skill ticks damage ten times; each being a separate hit. And thus the chance of a critical hit is calculated separately for each, allowing multiple opportunities to trigger on-critical effects.
  • The same skill is available by equipping the bundle called Flamethrower.
  • The whole sequence takes 2.57 seconds.
