Tips and Details

  • Windmill grants a large amount of Awakening Charge and MP. However, the same applies to opponents in PvP, so be cautious when using it there.
  • The Super Armor granted by this skill will also reduce damage taken by 30%.
    • As Windmill does not grant any immunity to disabling status effects, it can still be cancelled by effects such as Stun.
  • While Armageddon Blade appears as if it should extend the skill's range, it does not have any effect on the current version of Windmill.
  • You will be slightly moving backwards when casting this skill, so you will be sometimes required to move forward using arrow keys to ensure maximum hits.

Old Version

Video Description
Between its initial release and the 06/26/2014 KR Patch, Windmill did not have any suction and could not be used to move through enemies. Elsword could only use this skill to push targets back until the revamp in 2013 on the Korean server.
