— In-game description


  • The Celestial Avatar form is considered a Staff for the purposes of this trait. Shifting into Celestial Avatar on any weapon will trigger the effect. However, leaving Celestial Avatar onto a weapon other than a Staff will not trigger the effect.
  • The daze applies before damage from Sigil of Hydromancy, making it possible to activate Ancient Seeds on weapon swap.
