  • The hammers rotate at a speed that will hit static enemies about 3 times per second.
  • The heal is applied every time the hammers hit any enemy; thus, this skill can hit and heal ~15 times per second if all 3 hammers hit 5 targets every second.
  • The hammers themselves (i.e. the damaging part of this skill) have a maximum duration of 3 minutes and 17 seconds.

Patch Changes
October 26, 2021
  • Multiplicative damage reduction enhancements have been updated to display how much damage was reduced by rather than displaying how much the damage is multiplied by. For example, protection now displays "-33% Damage" instead of "67% damage." This is not a change to functionality; it is only a change to display the bonus in a more intuitively understandable way.

  • All effects that provide a percentage reduction to incoming damage have been standardized to stack multiplicatively.
