Meh cripple aint great. Raptaz 14:02, 6 December 2007 (UTC)

play a war chasing a caster, then say that again09:19, 6 January 2008 (UTC)
This is a helpful skill, with real players, it becomes less useful with heroes and henchies, who all attack the same thing.--Media Control 00:55, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
Even with real players, a few cripples isn't that hot. Dervish Aura of Thorns is easier to use, non-elite and ends up having kinda same effect. --Spura 13:14, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
Very true, perhaps bumb it up to 8 adrenaline and add the bleeding effect as well?--Media Control 15:46, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
I would be much happier if it was something like: "For 1..8..10 seconds, every time an ally uses an attack skill, it inflicts 0..1..2 seconds of cripple condition if it hits". If skill worked like that, I would use it. It would kinda allow attacker to keep crippling kiting enemies as long as they had attack skills to spam. --Spura 16:29, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Same Pic in a Skill?[edit]

Is this the same leg that is in Crippling Shot?--Treesbyty 12:45, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

no, there are no slash marks on the leg of cripshot--User Raph Sig2.jpgRaph Talky 23:15, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

Maybe Crippling Shot left a scar? Even though its weird that its a slash mark. hmmmmmmmmm *ponders*:P --MageUser MageMontu sig.pngMontu 07:46, 28 May 2008 (UTC)
I think they just went for the "crippled foot" look again ;) Paddymew 07:30, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

This > Cripshot?[edit]

Doesn't this skill kind of make cripshot obsolete? 22:04, 10 March 2008 (UTC) Charon

Depends, i dont think most rangers would carry around this one anthem just to give everyone the ability to cripple, so id say no.--User Raph Sig2.jpgRaph Talky 20:56, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

Maybe at the flag stand but not on a split and even then Cripshot is more spammable.--Underwood 21:00, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

Also Cripshot is unblockable. ( 23:26, 27 March 2008 (UTC))

So is Magebane Shot. This on a para + Magebane + Apply Poison = Cripple and Poison on an interrupt. Also allows the paragon itself and the frontliners to cripple. 02:53, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

MB is an elite -.- 15:52, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

Which can be carried by a Ranger Ally. So, to reiterate, this on a paragon, ranger backliners +MB = Cripple interrupt unblockable. Snaring a target you don't want to cast is always a good idea. FleshAndFaith 03:29, 30 May 2008 (UTC)
i'm sure that sounds really nice on paper but the point of cripshot is its spammability and splitability due to the character it's on. they both have their uses, but i don't see people running crippling anthem gons over cripshot rangers anytime soon. 01:29, 31 July 2008 (UTC)


does anyone know if this affects all enemies if you use cycle, whirlwind, or 100 swords?GRRRRARG 22:38, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

Chances are it works like all other chants/shouts, ehere it affects the first attack only. --- Ressmonkey (talk) 23:25, 5 May 2008 (UTC)


i dont know how to add th anormaly template, so i wont try. but i wouldnt say that its a bug. so sould someone who know what they are doing, please add "anormaly" insted 06:21, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

I'd say it's a bug. Any other Anthem or Shout that affects allies clearly states "Allies" while those that only affect Party members say "Party members". 20:13, 2 June 2008 (UTC)
Is the bug that affect anything still in effect?-- 17:31, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

Reasons why Anthem of Guidance is useless[edit]

Read Crippling Anthem.Keywords:"...allies...".--ShadowFog 21:54, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

gtfo. it also affects party members. it becomes really useful when used in conjunction with allies on some missions. 10:58, 7 June 2009 (UTC)
"Allies" means both party members and all other players/NPCs who are friendly to the player. This is a way for Black Bear to actually be a good pet. Paddymew 07:43, 23 June 2009 (UTC)
Nice to see people don't actually test skills before they conclude they're unusable and crap 11:08, 7 December 2010 (UTC)


i was wondering does this skill work on a black bear who uses brutal mauling ?

Yes --Frosty User Frosty Frostcharge sig.jpg 08:46, 6 June 2010 (UTC)
