[edit] Notes

  • 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.
