Notes[edit]

  • Unless using a scythe, this skill counts as one attack on the targeted foe.
  • With a scythe, this skill counts as one attack on the targeted foe, but can also hit up to two additional adjacent foes.
    • Sand Shards will trigger several times and 2 or 3 strikes of adrenaline or energy can potentially be gained.
  • Since no damage is dealt, skills such as Order of Pain or Barbs have no effect. However Soul Taker's health sacrifice cost will still occur for each foe hit.
