Tips and Details

  • Elemental Enchantments on weapons will activate at a much lower rate from siege arrows. (roughly 1/3 of normal)
  • If a target is in range, shots will be aimed towards them when fired.
    • Arrows will also aim at targets that are in range and up to a platform below you.
  • This skill's cooldown will not start until either all 5 shots are fired or you cancel the skill.
    • The skill can be cast again while it is still active, allowing you to fire 4 shots from the first cast, and then 5 shots from the second cast with no downtime.
    • If the skill is on cooldown when you fire your 5th shot or cancel the skill, the cooldown will reset to 5 seconds.
  • When consuming NF, arrows' penetration is increased by 1 (it can hit 3 enemies at once) and the range of Z.png shots is increased.
  • Each shot consumes 1 NF bar, even if it hits nothing.
  • Each arrow counts as 1 attack in the NF gauge.

Old Version

Video Description
In this iteration which lasted from the game's initial release to a March 2012 KR Patch, the X.png input would fire a spread of 3 arrows instead of an arc of 5. The skill also had no cooldown during this iteration.
