Notes[edit]

  • Synergizes well with attack skills that can cause multiple attacks with a sword (i.e. Sun and Moon Slash, Whirlwind Attack, and Twin Moon Sweep) and with hex spells that deal damage whenever the hexed foe takes physical damage (i.e. Barbs and Mark of Pain).
    • When Whirlwind Attack is used, this skill will trigger on each adjacent foe hit.
  • Because this triggers on attack, you don't actually have to hit for the damage to occur.
  • The damage from Hundred Blades is inflicted before the damage from your sword, which means that using +damage skills will "ignore" skills like Reversal of Fortune and Life Sheath. This avoids triggering effects that depend on attacks, e.g. if your target dies from the Hundred Blades damage, you will not suffer the damage from Empathy.
    • Also, since the damage applied by Hundred Blades is indirect, it will not trigger more damage on Holy Wrath or Retribution.
  • Because this damages all "adjacent foes" it will not cause slashing damage to kiting opponents as they will have moved away by the time the attack connects.
  • If you are using an emote when using this skill, no animation will show until you stop doing the emote. The animation will stack with several Hundred Blades.
