  • This skill now inflicts confusion on each impact.
  • Confusion has been increased from 1 stack to 3 stacks with a duration of 5 seconds in PvE and 3 seconds in PvP and WvW.


  • The magic bullet theory is a disparaging name critics have given the single-bullet theory that the Warren Commission proposed to explain how a single bullet could have killed John F. Kennedy and injured Texas Governor John Connally.
