Tips and Details

  • This skill can deal 10 hits on each side for a total of 20 hits.
    • Only bosses you can pass through will be able to get hit by both sides of this skill.
  • The Energy Field can activate core attacks if it connects, even if the opponent is not hit by any of the Nasod Blades.
    • The   Enemy DebuffMove Slowdown will continuously reapply itself so long as the target is within the field.
  • The spikes will always spawn at the same altitude as you. If you step off a platform mid-animation, spikes will spawn along the way.


  • Illusion Thorns derives from an Active once unique to the Epic NPC Code: Q-Proto_00. However, this version is a Special Active and it casts much faster.
