Skill Trainers:


  • Combine with skills like Spiteful Spirit or Empathy which deal damage every time the target attacks to deal that damage faster, or with Price of Failure or Spirit of Failure to trigger those skills' "fails to hit in combat" effects more often.
  • Casting this on an Illusionary Weaponry mesmer will increase their attack speed at no cost to them, unless you have placed one of the abovementioned "damage on attack" skills on them.
  • In Hard Mode, because the monsters already have an increased attack speed and cannot exceed the cap, the only effect of this skill will be the increased miss chance.
  • On average, this hex will reduce damage output by 32.5%. This effect may be more significant against assassins as their attack chains may fail, thus depriving them of a powerful Dual attack.
