Plague_spears.png Amazon healers have long since ascertained the potent toxicity of their native flora. Any Amazon warrior devoted to this study is able to recognize particularly lethal strains of plant life, even while travelling in foreign lands. This knowledge allows her to call upon and create weapons from particularly virulent thorns.

This is a Spell Damage Based Combat Art.

Skills and Attributes

The following skills will affect this combat art:

  • 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

  • Inner Sight will increase this Combat Art's damage.
  • Plague Spears launches a stream of thorns projecting from the ground. They launch in a straight and narrow line in the direction of casting.
  • This CA has a long casting animation, although Cast Speed +% modifiers will help to decrease it. It is also cast much more quickly while mounted.
  • Works most effectively against large, slow opponents who will be hit by many thorns at once. It is less effective against small opponents who are likely to only contact a single thorn. At high CA levels this becomes less of a problem, as the damage increases significantly.
  • Opponents can first be rooted or stunned to hold them in place before Plague Spears is launched at them.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • At high CA levels, can do very high damage to large monsters (bosses, dragons).
  • With the Density and Thorns mods, thorns count can get as high as 28 or more, with the distance between reduced to -70& at very high levels.

Cons

  • Difficult to hit more than a few targets at once unless they are lined up, due to the linear nature of the Combat Art.
