Tips and Details
- Sandstorm does 3,956% (1,573% in PvP) Physical Damage, assuming all hits connect. With Heavy it does 5,538.4% (2,202.2% in PvP) Physical Damage.
- Its incredible vertical range makes it the perfect skill for flying enemies and enemies on platforms. Has also very respectable horizontal range.
- When used close to the target, it will hit it from behind, which is ideal against shielded opponents, such as Raven and his Nasod Shield or anything that guards the front in PvE.
- Elsword is able to move and act while the skill is still happening, allowing him to attack his opponents caught in it for additional damage, and not allowing them to get knocked down after the skill ends if done right, continuing his combos.
- A great skill for getting Elsword into his Aura of Vitality state quickly (especially with extra mid-air X attacks) while also delivering good and MP-efficient damage, as well as to continue and/or extend combos.
- The sand tornado will appear at Elsword's position during the end of the summon animation. This means that if this skill was used at the edge of a platform, the tornado will appear at Elsword's final position of his animation as he falls from the platform.
- The tornado will stop at a wall for a few seconds in its lifetime, however afterwards it'll just clip through it.
- The tornado has suction and will drag enemies caught.
- The last hit will knockdown.
