Tips and Details

  • This skill is heavily affected by action speed, drastically reducing its hit count at higher amounts. With 0% attack speed, the maximum hit count is 9, while at 20% it drops down to just 7 hits, and further with more action speed.
    • Blood Hit assumes a consistent hit count for its HP consumption and will not be affected by this issue.
  • The double attack chance stacks with other equipment/set effects/Random Mission that gives double attack chance.
  • While the buff is active, a dark aura will surround Elesis' claymore.
    • The border of the aura changes from red to a deep pink color when re-using the skill.
  • This skill works extremely well combined with Actives like Dark Wave, as well as the combo, due to the large number of hits.
  • This skill will miss a hit in Free Training.
