Tips and Details

  • Because of its very long forward range, the skill is best used on wider targets.
  • The shockwave lifts enemies up slightly and carries them with it, assuming they are not in Super Armor.
    • Because the shockwave slows down a little near the end of its range, it can actually deal more hits on enemies near its tail end. You should always back up a bit before casting the skill to maximize hits.
  • The hit count of the shockwave varies a lot based on enemy size, your distance from them, and if they can be lifted by the skill.
    • Small enemies lifted by the skill will take an average of 16 hits, though with very specific spacing, it can reach up to 21 hits.
    • Medium-sized enemies with Super Armor will take an average of 15 hits. When hitting them from further away, it can reach up to 17 hits.
    • Large enemies that can take all hits of the skill include Ancient Bone Dragon and Debrian Nasod Carrier.


  • In Raven's voice webtoon "Double Crow", Shockwave is powerful enough to split a mountain.
