Why is this skill good? ----thE mAttSEr User The Mattser Cleave.jpg Talk 17:32, 24 September 2007 (UTC)

It's one of a few off-hand attacks that can be used to bypass needing a lead attack from a raw state (meaning they're not already KD from HotO). Usually this is used with Aura of Displacement and followed by Horns, much in the same way that Black Lotus Strike and Black Spider Strike are used with Shadow Prison and followed by Horns in the SP tiger stance sin. --onoes!

This skill needs to have the little green up arrow that means an enchantment just like Black Spider Strike has the hex symbol. Not really that big of a problem just for consistency--70.105.22.235 14:27, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

I agree, even thought it's not a problem for me. Nicoli20 02:33, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

August Update Changed it to 1/2 activation...[edit]

...but I don't see 1/2 activation in Balth. Temple when testing it. --Ulterion 23:18, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

It didn't change Golden Phoenix Strike's activation at all. You were probably reading the change made to Jagged Strike, right below Golden Phoenix Strike on the list. Incidentally, the game update description for Golden Phoenix Strike says that the functionality was changed to "If you are not under the effects of an Enchantment, this skill misses. If it hits, Golden Phoenix Strike deals +10..30 damage and all adjacent foes take 10..30 damage." But in game, it says "If you are not under the effects of an Enchantment, this skill misses. If it hits, Golden Phoenix Strike deals +10..30 damage and all adjacent foes take 0 damage." And that's exactly how the skill functions: adjacent foes DON'T take additional damage, so the skill's functionality hasn't actually changed at all. Someone at Anet might want to get on fixing that. -76.127.240.5 23:24, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

Animation[edit]

I absolutely love the attack animation for this skill! I was using it in the middle of a group of Wind Riders once, and zoomed in on my sin to get a close-up. Then a Rider rupted me. I damn near cried... ~ A R A ~ 05:31, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

Old Version[edit]

Didn't this skill use to return energy? Tong2 18:26, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

Late response, but no, never did, you're thinking of Golden Lotus Strike Amberlink 17:25, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
