From Guild Wars Wiki
- This article is about the Core skill. For the temporarily available Bonus Mission Pack skill, see Distracting Blow (Turai Ossa).
- Concise description
Melee Attack. Also attacks foes adjacent to your target. Interrupts an action. Hits for no damage.
- Eye of the North
- Distracting Blow only counts as a hit on the target, regardless of how many adjacent foes are interrupted. Consequently, you will only gain 1 adrenaline.
- Skills which trigger on physical damage, such as Order of Pain or Barbs, have no effect when this skill is used, as no damage is dealt.
- Unlike Cyclone Axe and contrary to the concise description, this skill does not cause Illusionary Weaponry or Sand Shards to trigger on adjacent foes. However, Hundred Blades and Vow of Strength will be triggered on all adjacent foes, as these skills do not require the attack to connect.
