Skill Trainers:


  • This skill allows arrows to be fired at a much higher rate than normal, especially on targets under 50% health. Consider using it with skills that trigger on hit such as Choking Gas or stacked damage bonuses.
  • The damage from this skill ignores armor.
  • Although critical hits from this attack deal no extra damage, they act as normal for any other purpose (i.e. Critical Strikes, Disrupting Accuracy, etc).
  • Despite it saying it recharges when it strikes a foe below 50% health, it will recharge if the shot fails to hit as well.
  • The instant recharge applies the moment the arrow is released, not when it hits the target. Thus, if the target heals himself above 50% health while the arrow is in the air, the skill will recharge instantly, and if the target has more than 50% health when the arrow is fired but takes damage that would drop his health below 50% while the arrow is in the air, the skill will take four seconds to recharge.
  • The instant recharge works through the effects of Diversion and other skill-disabling effects.
