  • Every grenade skill actually throws three grenades, each dealing the damage and inflicting the conditions stated in the tooltip. Damaging grenade skills, assuming all grenades hit, thus have three chances for critical strikes and other direct damage considerations per cast.
  • Line of sight is not required to use Grenade Kit skills.
  • Grenades can be reflected, but will rarely explode or do any damage.
When used underwater, grenades will not explode until they either reach max range or hit an enemy or object directly, severely limiting their usefulness.
