Puncturing Strikes
Puncturing Strikes: Launch a relentless assault, striking enemies in front of you four times with your Aedric spear. The spear deals [2237 / 2261 / 2284 / 2310] Magic Damage to the closest enemy and [860 / 870 / 879 / 889] Magic Damage to all other enemies. The final strike reduces the Movement Speed of the closest enemy by 70% for 2 seconds.
Biting Jabs: Cost: 2509 Stamina.
Launch a relentless assault, striking enemies in front of you four times with your Aedric spear. The spear deals [2310 / 2335 / 2360 / 2386] Physical Damage to the closest enemy and [896 / 905 / 915 / 924] Physical Damage to all other enemies. The final strike reduces the Movement Speed of the closest enemy by 70% for 2 seconds. Activating this ability grants you Major Savagery, increasing your Weapon Critical rating by 2191 for 8 seconds.
Puncturing Sweep: Launch a relentless assault, striking enemies in front of you four times with your Aedric spear. The spear deals [2311 / 2335 / 2361 / 2387] Magic Damage to the closest enemy and [895 / 904 / 914 / 925] Magic Damage to all other enemies. The final strike reduces the Movement Speed of the closest enemy by 70% for 2 seconds. You heal for 40% of the damage done with this ability.

Puncturing Strikes deals magic damage to enemies in front of you with each strike, dealing additional damage to whichever enemy is nearest. The Biting Jabs morph changes it to a Stamina-based skill dealing physical damage, and gives an increased chance of Critical Strikes. Puncturing Sweep adds some Health restoration per hit instead.

Notes[edit]

  • A benefit of the multiple strikes from this skill is that each hit has a chance of being a Critical Strike. Thus, stacking up on Spell Critical (or Weapon Critical with Biting Jabs) will greatly increase the effectiveness of this skill.
  • Puncturing Sweep is a recommended morph for the Templar Initiate and Gleaming Champion builds, while Biting Jabs is recommended for Luminous Warrior.
