  • DEX affects the Cast Time of the skill.
  • The Cast Time cannot be interrupted except by use of Spell Breaker.
  • The skill's range is checked after the skill is finished casting. If the target is out of range when casting is complete, the skill will fail.
  • If the opponent isn't wearing a shield, the skill will always fail.
  • The Divest Shield status does not prevent players from using the shield slot for equipping two-handed weapons.

Duration and Effect

  • Success Rate [%] = 5 + (5 * Skill Level) + (Dex Difference / 5)
  • Duration [seconds] = 60 + (15 * Skill Level) + (Dex Difference / 2)
  • Dex Difference is your dex minus the target's dex. If your dex is higher than the targets, the chance of success and duration will increase. If your dex is lower than the targets, the duration and chance will decrease.
  • There is a base 5% chance of success, the success rate cannot be reduced below this 5%.
