Tips and Details

  • The Exploding Arrows will deal around 6 hits on all enemies regardless of size, on any given hit interval.
  • The skill fires 2 Exploding Arrows per second. Each arrow consists of 5 sections that deal 2 hits each.
    • In Free Training, each section deals 3 hits due to a known bug featuring multi-hit skills.
  • The Exploding Arrows can pierce through all enemies and travel for a long distance, allowing it to deal multiple hits to enemies with long hitboxes.
  • The Focused Arrows all have their own individual hitbox, so smaller enemies may not be hit by some of them.
  • On smaller targets, especially humanoid enemies, the Focused Arrows will only partially hit them, dealing around 2/5 of the maximum hits or 12 ~ 124 hits.
  • While you're capable of holding the skill key for extra damage, this costs a truly tremendous amount of MP, and on just a single MP bar you will only be able to extend the skill slightly under 2 seconds.
    • The total MP required to cast the skill in its entirety is 1050 MP (1110 MP with the Critical trait), making it quite easily the most expensive skill in the game.
  • This skill's range is close to Phoenix Strike. However, the Focused Arrows' range is about 90% of Exploding Arrows'.
