Tips and Details

  • Due to its quick activation, the skill is relatively safe to use despite it lacking super armor. Still, caution is advised when surrounded by enemies.
  • Because the duration of this skill is much longer than the cooldown, it is possible to maintain this buff for an extremely long time if you have a constant stream of MP.
  • The increases in Critical and Critical Damage are multiplicative. As a result, the increase in Critical Damage from this skill is actually 13.3333%.
