Tips and Details

  • Metal Dust Aura gives MP and awakening to the opponent per hit.
  • Although damage is continuous, there is a hitstun only on the initial hit.
    • If the skill hits an opponent while Eve was stopped by a special active's freeze frames, she can immediately move.
    • If an opponent affected by stun is hit by Metal Dust Aura, the stun effect will be removed and the said opponent can immediately move.
  • It is mainly used to fill up the Awakening Gauge quickly.
  • As of a certain update, the DoT damage no longer breaks reactor objects, such as doors, boxes, chests, Harpoon triggers and such. This was reverted with the fields update.
  • The range of the skill is more or less the range of a Z attack.
  • Metal Dust Aura should not be used against bosses as it contributes to aggro hits.
  • The DoT can activate counter attacks, but you will not flinch as you would when you hit counter initially.
