Tips and Details

  • The arrows all have their own individual hitbox, so smaller enemies may not be hit by some of them.
  • On smaller targets, especially opponents in PvP, the skill will only partially hit them, dealing 11 ~ 101 hits, only about a third of the total amount.
    • On these targets, [Enhanced] Ace in the Hole will deal around 2,409% ~ 22,119% (913% ~ 8,383% in PvP) Magical Damage depending on how long it is held for. With the Heavy trait, the skill will deal around 3,468.96% ~ 31,851.36% (1,314.72% ~ 12,071.52% in PvP) Magical Damage.
    • Assuming each of the arrows hit, the skill can deal up to 6,351% ~ 66,357% Magical Damage depending on how long it is held for, or 9,145.44% ~ 95,554.08% with the Heavy trait.
  • This skill uniquely does not consume any NF, though this also means no NF blast can be produced.
  • While you're capable of holding the skill key for extra damage, this costs a truly tremendous amount of MP, and on just a single MP bar you will only be able to extend the skill slightly under 2 seconds.
    • The total MP required to cast the skill in its entirety is 1050 MP (1110 MP with the Critical trait), making it quite easily the most expensive skill in the game.
    • Because of the high cost, allies that can mitigate that cost while you are firing the skill such as Radiant Soul or Bluhen can be very helpful in maximizing your damage output.
  • The arrows do not pierce at all, making the skill only really useful for boss fights.
