Skill quests:


  • This spell is unique in that it causes direct physical damage.
  • This has some projectile spell behavior as sometimes mobs will kite it, yet it can be used without line of sight.
  • Both effects may trigger when used against Charr, causing well over 1000 damage.
  • This spell can be rendered highly effective when used with quick recharge skills such as Oath Shot.
  • For some kinds of Charr, no increased chance for extra damage is observed.


  • When you get a "headshot," a random message appears in the chat window. These messages include:
    • "Snap! Headshot!" which is likely a reference to the FPS catchphrase "BOOM HEADSHOT!".
    • "One arrow one kill." which is likely a reference to the sniper phrase "One shot, one kill".
    • "I am a stone. I do not move. I do not tremble. I have no fear." which refers to the movie Enemy at the Gates.
    • "Balthazar bless my strength, teach my hands to war, and my fingers to fight." is similar to a passage from the Bible used in Saving Private Ryan.
  • The "arrows" from Ebon Vanguard Sniper Support always fly in from the south.
