Tips and Details

  • Infernal Blade's summoning cast will deal damage to anything in the path of its swings, including enemies above and behind you.
  • The defense pierce effect reduces the percentage value of defense, rather than the numeric value like most similar effects. This means it is much better than defense ignore at the same value, especially for high defense content.
    • The Annihilation Mode bonus is additive to this effect.
    • The defense pierce effect itself is limited to 80%, regardless of the Fire Elemental Resistance buffs applied to you. However, Fire Resistance Decrease debuffs will affect the value accordingly.
