  • This skill deals physical damage.
  • This skill will damage all adjacent foes and will trigger the AoE scatter effect on NPC's, if the damage frequency is high enough.
  • Whirling Defense does not protect against projectile spells like Flare, since they are not attacks.
  • Combine with Oath Shot to compensate for the long recharge.
  • With Mark of Pain on an adjacent foe, Whirling Defense can produce very fast and deadly damage around the character given heavy fire.
Anomaly Anomaly! Despite dealing physical damage, this skill's damage ignores armor and is not converted to fire damage by Greater Conflagration.
