Tips and Details

  • The skill can be held for up to 15 seconds before it is automatically canceled. After that, you'll be refunded MP based on the number of arrows you didn't fire.
  • The damage increase can only apply to the second or third arrows onward, as the first or second is required to hit to apply the damage boost first.
  • The Focused Arrow Explosions continue to deal damage along the Focused Arrow's travel path, so more hits are possible on larger targets. They are very spread out however, making it hard to deal more than 3 hits on most targets.
    • With proper positioning, a Big Training Monkey can take 4 hits. All enemies will take a minimum of 2 hits.
  • [Enhanced] Ace in the Hole can deal up to 11,461.2% Magical Damage (3,492.8% in PvP) assuming all 3 arrows hit and the target receives 3 Focused Arrow Explosion hits.
