Notes

  • iRO exclusive feature: Base level damage scaling is disabled.
  • This skill has a 50% base chance of inflicting Critical Damage and is also increased by the user's Critical Hit Rate, which is reduced depending on the enemy's Critical Hit Shield.
  • Monsters in the 13th cell along the line take reduced damage.
  • Only cards and equipment that explicitly increase Crit rate in the Status Window will increase the Crit rate for this skill. Cards that implicitly increase Crit rate do not show in the Status Window, such as Drosera Cards and critical racial damage cards, therefore they will not work with this skill.
  • The Area of Effect of this skill is a little quirky, almost unique in the game. The line algorithm is likely the same as the one used for the final resting place of objects pushed by Arrow Repel.
  • The full damage area extends 12 cells from the user, along with the line from user to target as determined by a Bresenham type algorithm, as well as the cells immediately tangent to this line. Covers 3x12 cells.

Tips

  • Using this skill at a group of monsters may miss some of them. To ensure all monsters are hit, shoot them from a straight line vertically or horizontally in the default camera angle (double right click for default angle).
    • Basically, avoid shooting them from a diagonal in the default camera angle.
  • Since this skill can be a critical hit, it is useful for fighting monsters with high Flee, including MVPs that have used NPC AGIUP
  • Sniping Suit is a suggested armor when heavily using this skill.
