Do we know if this skill chains to retrieve your sword or does it return automatically after a set time period? --Tyris 08:30, 30 August 2011 (UTC)

Seemed like this skill doesn't apply more than one bleed until you use the second ability in the chain (retrieve your sword, I guess). Until you do, your target has a condition called "Impaled" (and a sword in its chest). The second ability is melee range. --Semantic 10:16, 15 May 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, funny how nobody has added the skill in sequence... can't remember what it was called. :/ Mediggo 10:19, 15 May 2012 (UTC)
The 2nd ability seemed to do quite a bit more damage than the initial throw, in addition to upping the bleed stack. --Semantic 04:10, 29 May 2012 (UTC)
What this skill seems to be doing is - you throw the sword and give the target a unique condition (Impaled) and one stack of bleeding. Then every couple of seconds that the target is (Impaled) the stack increments by 1 up to a maximum of 4. If you remove the sword before the counter gets to 4 the target takes a packet of damage and whatever bleed stacks have been applied expire normally.--Semantic 00:39, 12 June 2012 (UTC)


Does any know if Impale is now a projectile combo skill? I mean you throw the sword after all. ---BlakDoxa 04:46, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

To answer both questions (pretty late, but I was just "random page"-ing): you never lose your sword. You kind of throw a copy - like how paragons could throw infinite spears. That, or warriors are all actually the Flash and run and retrieve it every time they use this skill. Thunderduck 02:41, 8 April 2012 (UTC)

After throwing sword Impale icon changes to another skill that allows you to take the sword off from enemy and make additional damage, cant remember skill name though. Gorribal 15:03, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

(Reset indent) I believe most of the information requested is now up to date. Taking skill tooltip information was easy, so thanks to Ishmael for actually bothering to go to PvP and document the damage value with default Power level. :) Also turns out that Rip's icon was Impale's icon turned right, so while I didn't have usable screen of the skill icon itself, it was possible to just download and rotate Impale's icon to its side and upload it. :D Mediggo 15:07, 17 June 2012 (UTC)
