|Blinding Mist Skill Info|
|Area:||5 x 3|
|(Sage) Whirlwind Lv. 2, Deluge Lv. 2|
Creates a 5 x 3 area mist that will inflict the blind status on all characters and monsters inside it, plus extra effects described below. When Blinding Mist is cast on Deluge, the skill duration of Blinding Mist is doubled.
Characters inside the mist will have a 75% chance to completely avoid target skills (both magical and physical), both from outside the mist and inside. This gives protection to all characters within the mist. It is possible, however, to push characters from the mist using knockback skills like Arrow Repel (where it is possible). However, it will not prevent damage from Area of Effect skills. Blinding Mist can be combined with Safety Wall.
Characters protected by the mist also receive extra protection from ranged normal attacks (ranged skills will have the previously described 75% chance to avoid) and skills which damage is lowered by range reduction (i.e. Horn card, Alligator card). If any ranged normal attack (from an Archer's bow or Gunslinger's gun, for example) is aimed at them, that attack will have a 75% damage penalty and -50 HIT (thus lowering the possibility of hitting, as well).
Monsters are also affected in the same manner, but the effects of the mist will continue for the skill's duration even after the monster leaves the mist area. This does not apply to players, who will lose all benefits of mist's protection the moment they leave it.
The blind status will not affect:
- The caster
- Other players on PvM maps
- Boss property monsters
- Monsters with high int and/ or vit (i.e. Kathryne Keyron)
- Party members in PvP maps
- Guild and alliance members in WoE maps
A Scholar can only have up to two active mists at any given time.
