  • 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).
Inflicts vulnerability on the Elementalist's summoned allies (such as those summoned via Glyph of Lesser Elementals and Glyph of Elementals).
