Why does it say in the description...[edit]

Why does it say in the description "Blood ritual cannot be used on the caster.", instead of simply saying "touched other ally"?64.180.184.69 03:31, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Because Anet tries to be as inconsistent as possible in all skill descriptions.24.129.26.35 10:09, 1 August 2008 (UTC)
Many Prophecies skills have awkward wordings because ANet had not yet figured out a standard for wording of skill effects. 64.113.90.68 01:47, 20 December 2008 (UTC)

"Henchmen will not use this skill on characters wielding martial weapons."[edit]

I was screwing around in PvE earlier and Eve used Blood Ritual on me while I was wielding a spear. Did the latest skill balancing/AI modifications (June 18) somehow change this and go undocumented?

Yeah i believe so. I noticed the change aswell and did some testing. The current note is accurate: AI will only not BR or BiP martial proffesions wielding martial weapons. Justice 09:30, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

extra 1e note[edit]

At first I thought it meant that it shows an extra +1er so I checked out the vid posted. Then realized it was actually meaning +1e. I figured it was probably a rounding thing. So I took out 4 upkeeps and after several tries I managed to get 2e that pinged 3e. Br has nothing to do with it. Just a rounding thing from whats displayed to whats the nearest number and its much more easy to see when you can "freeze" your energy bar. Another way you might see this is when your bottoming out on energy and every time your close to enough you start clicking on the skill and it will cast even when the energy bar reads 4e. Monks are probably familiar with this (well us bad ones at least haha). Justice 06:07, 8 September 2010 (UTC)

Still a touch enchantment?[edit]

I don't think it's concise description states it is a touch enchantment 122.62.148.13 08:21, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, I just noticed this. The in-game description doesn't mention that it's a touch spell and that's pretty misleading. Pjwned 21:05, 25 March 2011 (UTC)
Good catch, 122. I've updated the concise description for the wiki and added the bug note.  — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 21:56, 25 March 2011 (UTC)
