Tips and Details[edit]

  • Unlike Scare Chase, the unlisted Cannon Hit is affected by this skill's [Final Enhanced] effect, always dealing the same damage as the Z.png Cannon Attack would. Likewise, it is also affected by both skill traits.
  • Chung will enter Heavy Stance upon triggering either the Z.png or X.png finishing attack.
  • The missiles will deal splash damage to nearby enemies, though since they can only pierce once, this limits the potential damage increase to just twice the usual damage.
    • As with most splash damage projectiles, the missiles will also explode at their maximum range if they do not hit a second target. Hitting an enemy at max range can allow the skill to deal more damage without the need for additional enemies.
      • Some wider enemies, like Chaos Leviathan, can be consistently hit by both explosions without requiring any particular spacing.
  • It is typically better to finish the skill with the Z.png input, as it provides you with longer Heavy Stance frames as well as prevents the skill from potentially knocking down. It also deals more damage than the final X.png missile on most paths, except for Centurion.
  • The skill's Range Increase is based on the range of a cannonball fired by a command such as Z.pngZ.pngZ.pngX.png.
  • By having enough Movement Speed, it is possible to catch after the final X.png shot by canceling with a dash. It is also possible to cancel right after the initial strike by dashing, serving as a quicker and cheaper Reload.
  • The skill can easily be looped on itself indefinitely in Berserk mode, either by spacing out the shots or with the help of Intense Showtime.
  • None of the hits of this skill will grant you any MP, including for your Pet.
  • Be careful to not use this skill while at the edge of a ledge behind you, since the casting animation will make Chung back up slightly, potentially interrupting the skill.


Trivia[edit]

  • The skill's chance to reload cannonballs was originally part of the Advanced Siege Shelling passive, and was added to this skill right after that passive was deleted. The range increase was later granted to the skill itself as well.
  • Siege Shelling was originally planned to have a different casting animation, as seen in Shelling Guardian's Promo Trailer, where he swings his cannon sideways before assuming Siege Stance instead of dropping his cannon straight into the stance.


Old Version[edit]

Video Description
Between its initial release and the 07/10/2014 KR Patch, Siege Shelling did not fire a projectile. Instead, it would automatically hit the closest target within range, similar to Aiming Shot.
