Notes[edit]

  • Regeneration is granted at the end of the evade-animation.
  • The water field is created in the beginning of the cast and it moves backwards with the player during the evasion. Healing pulses occur inside the field only.
  • Riptide moves the player character ~390 units backwards.
  • Evasion frame actually lasts for 1.1 seconds which is also the precise activation time.
