Tips and Details

  • Burst of Terror's damage is based on your physical attack. It is affected by your Additional Damage and Critical stats but ignores defense.
    • Despite what the tooltip says, Burst of Terror at level 4 actually deals 100% (40% in PvP) of your attack power as damage, not 87% (34% in PvP).
    • Burst of Terror is affected by skill damage increases based on the skill used to trigger it. It will never count as a Back Attack however, so it will not be increased by this passive's 15% increase for Special Active attacks or Gaze of Abyss's 20% increase for Active/Command attacks, even if the skill that triggered it was used from behind.
      • For example, when using Terror Chain, Burst of Terror will gain any Active skill damage increases, while when using Apollyon, it will gain any Bravery and Special Active skill damage increases, including the increase provided by Remnant of Fear.
  • This passive is affected by many other skills and passives of this class path:
  • Since Special Actives both apply and detonate Creeping Terror stacks on a target, the result is that Burst of Terror occurs even on targets with no stacks, as it will always apply the debuff immediately before detonating it.
    • Due to this however, since only commands will not immediately detonate stacks (and even then, the 5th stack applied may cause Force of Fear to apply), it is rather difficult to stack the effect for skills such as Apollyon. Phantom Blade is currently the only viable way to quickly apply 5 stacks.
