Tips and Details

  • The Tempest will create at least one whirlwind per enemy it hits, but it can hit one enemy multiple times at certain intervals. Only very small enemies will only be hit once, and most enemies, including players, will take at least 2 hits, creating 2 whirlwinds. With the right positioning, a medium-sized enemy like the Giant Training Monkey can sometimes be hit 3 times.
    • Due to this, not only is the skill great for clearing, large bosses will be hit by the Tempest many times, creating a large number of whirlwinds.
  • The whirlwinds will knock non-Super Armor enemies to the sides, bouncing them between multiple whirlwinds usually, which can result in a loss of hits.
  • The Whirlwind created by the Tempest deals splash damage to all enemies nearby, allowing the skill to do high damage on tightly grouped enemies.
  • This skill doesn't show up as a buff but upon using it, you will gain small gusts of wind around your feet. Once the skill is fully charged, the gusts will flash and a green aura will instead swirl around your feet until the skill either is used or expires.
  • The skill will cause skill freeze both on initial use and when actually casting the skill.
  • Possible bug: if you release the skill right before it expires, it will not go on cooldown.


Old Version
