Tips and Details

Debuff Icon
  • While active, Rena's hands will glow, and you cannot recharge MP by standing still.
  • As with regular branches, the delayed fire arrow's explosion deals splash damage.
  • Delayed Fire's arrow can pierce up to two targets and hit up to 3 targets total.
  • Trap Skills affected by Delayed Fire include Explosive Trap, Eldrasil's Fury (Only with 1 other branch or Trap present), and Seed of Wrath
  • Delayed Fire's own arrow does not count towards any trap limit and is not counted as a trap for the damage increase effect while it is stuck in the ground.
  • Keep in mind that, should a room transition occur while Delayed Fire is active, the skill icon will revert to the default image. However, pressing the Skill Key will act as the trap detonation.

Branch Stacking

  • Any Branch fired into the ground with DRU.pngX.png with Delayed Fire activated will stay on the ground for up to 15 seconds.
  • Enemies hit by either Delayed Fire's arrow or a branch from X.png commands will gain 1 Delayed Fire debuff stack that lasts for 10 seconds.
    • While both share the same debuff, the damage of the delayed explosion will be based on what added that specific debuff stack. If the first stack was from contact with Delayed Fire's arrow, and the 2nd and 3rd stack were from a branch, the first stack's explosion will do Delayed Fire's damage, while the remaining two stacks' explosions will do the branch's explosion damage.
    • Delayed Fire Debuff stacks count towards branch's trap count limit (including the one provided by Delayed Fire itself).
    • If another branch is fired, it will remove the oldest debuff stack present if there are no branch stuck in the ground. Otherwise, it will detonate the oldest of those branches first.
  • All players can see the debuff, but only you will be able to see the number of stacks.
  • The delayed explosions still deal hitstun, allowing you to catch enemies in the air after a launching attack.

Delayed Trap

  • All traps have their damage increased by a certain amount unique to each trap when delayed by this skill.
    • The damage increase is multiplied by the number of traps or Delayed Fire debuff stacks currently in play, up to 5 times.
      • Any traps set after 5 are already set will not increase the damage dealt further.
    • The damage increase only applies to the explosion portion of each trap, not the hit dealt while setting the trap.
  • Certain traps have a limit to how many can be delayed at once.


  • On some servers, when using the skill, the white text on the bottom-left may call the skill "Delayed Sticky Arrows".
  • Although the active only allows 5 branch stacks, there are image files for up to 10 stacks.
