Tips and Details

  • As it gathers souls per hit, if an enemy dies from the first hit, you won't gain souls from them on the second hit.
  • Enemies will be pulled in when they are hit by Drain Soul.
  • Maximize Souls will never trigger if you are already at 5 souls, so the skill cannot refresh the duration of your Gathered Souls buff when used on thin air.
    • Since it triggers at the very end of the skill, it can only trigger if you didn't already gain enough souls from hit enemies.
  • Without [Enhanced], the skill is actually not affected by Action Speed at all. However, upon unlocking it, the skill gains casting speed and becomes affected by Action Speed on top of that.
