Tips and Details

  • Players in PvP who are hit by Photon Flare will have their screen whitened for a few seconds.
    • Monsters will lose sight of any targets and will be denoted by a question mark above their heads.
  • Raven's core shield cancels the blinding effect from this skill.
  • Although the damage is fairly weak compared to other Strength-tier skills, it can be useful against flying mobs like Wyvern in 6-1 since it can be used in mid-air.
  • Photon Flare is helpful in Henir's Time and Space by impairing many bosses' movements and attacks. Nasod King and Karis' True Form are not affected by this.
  • The duration of Photon Flare's blind de-buff is reduced based on the distance the target is away from you. The duration is a minimum of half of the indicated duration if hit at furthest range from you. To achieve the indicated blind duration, use Photon Flare at point-blank.
