Notes

  • The Cast Time cannot be interrupted.
  • Even when used with a bow on a Rogue class, the skill is still considered Melee. Hence it is not blocked by Pneuma, does not consume arrows and some effects such as the bonus for equipping a Fire Arrow with Burning Bow will not apply.
  • The knockback effect will move the target into the direction the user has last moved or faced toward. When turning away from a target and then performing the skill, it results in the opposite effect where the target becomes drawn to the user.
  • The knockback effect is applied before inflicting damage. Due to this, Safety Wall does not block the skill.
  • Number of hit will change depends on weapon used.
    • Two-handed sword: number of hit will depends on number of targets.
      • 1 target: 2 hits
      • 2 ~ 3 targets: 3 hits
      • >4 targets: 4 hits
    • Any weapon beside two-handed sword: skill will always deal 2 hits.

Applications

  • This is one of two area skills a Knight can learn, the other being Brandish Spear. Unlike Brandish Spear, however, this skill does not have weapon restriction. It inflicts more damage than Brandish Spear, but also has a smaller area of effect. Knights oriented towards PvM generally prefer this skill over Brandish Spear simply due to its larger damage.
  • In PvP environments, Knights may be requested to tank and spread status effects instead of inflict damage. For this purpose, this skill has a small area of effect, making it less efficient for spreading status effects. This skill is still able to deal damage, and is useful for knocking back and scattering opponents.
