Skills and Attributes

The following skills will affect this combat art:

  • Combat Discipline will increase its Damage and reduce its regeneration time if this Combat Art is placed within a combo. This increase in Damage is direct; it increases the +xx% that the CA adds to base damage.
  • Speed Lore will increase its Chance to Hit indirectly by increasing a player's attack rating.

The following attributes will affect this combat art:

  • Strength will increase damage for melee weapons, and chance to hit
  • Dexterity will increase damage for ranged weapons (and some melee weapons), and chance to hit
  • Stamina will lower regeneration time

Usage Strategies

  • Main killing Combat Art for a ranged Dryad
  • Rotate is an extremely good mod to take. It makes the attack turn into a basically 360 degree Area of Effect.
  • BUG: On the console version, Darting Assault does not take into account the Intelligence boost from Acute Mind if wielding a magic staff. The display will say that this is the case, but tested in game numbers prove it other wise.

Pros and Cons


  • Very strong Area of Effect attack
  • Works very well with ranged weapons
  • In the Ice and Blood expansion, taking Magic Staffs as a skill will make the range on this Combat Art extremely far (off screen!). It will furthermore fire an unlimited amount of (invisible) projectiles at once, hitting every single target in range, even those behind walls. This is likely an unintended exploit.
  • Looks great when working with Life Leech or Regen per Hit gear.
  • Also has an impressive visual effect when mounted - the Monitor Lizard will rear up and smash enemies with its claws (see gallery below).


  • Not very effective using melee weapons.
  • Until the gold mod for Rotate is taken, the attack only fires in front of the dryad.
