  • This is a piercing projectile attack that is not limited to the usual 5 hits.
  • Vapor Blade will return to the user once it reaches its maximum range, hitting all foes in its path twice, unless the blade hits obstructing terrain or falls off a cliff, in which case the blade will not return.
  • Attack speed is 1 attack per 1.0 seconds.
  • The projectile(s) from this skill keeps to the ground, meaning that it can be aimed only horizontally; its path vertically is always along the ground. It also means that targets cannot be hit if there is a gap or large elevation in the ground between the target and the caster (eg. harpy jumping puzzle in Uncategorized Fractal).
