  • Combat Discipline - will increase the damage of this combat art and lower its regeneration time if it is placed in a combo.

The following attributes will affect this combat art:

  • Stamina will lower regeneration time

Usage Strategies

  • The spread pattern of the Spikes is controlled with mouse targeting.
  • Clicking close to your character will cause a wider fan of Glacial Spikes.
  • Clicking far from your character (i.e. in a corner of the screen) will cause the Glacial Spikes to concentrate together. This is useful when confronting a large and powerful monster, as it will be hit by most of the Spikes at once. It may require some adjustment of the camera to be able to click/target a spot beyond a large monster to get this effect.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Very good as a boss killer, can hit like a shotgun at close range.
  • Can also hit several enemies at once if a wider spread is used.

Cons

  • Spikes do not pierce enemies unless the player chooses the Pierce mods which only gives a chance to pierce (not 100%).
  • Spikes can be stopped by obstacles or if the target is far up hill.
  • Spikes may also go over enemy heads if they are far down a hill.
