Ranged Attack! Finally I can dish out some wand pwnage! Shiverz 23:06, 24 August 2007 (CDT)

Dont see why, its pretty crappy. --User:Frvwfr2 frvwfr2 (T/C) 23:13, 24 August 2007 (CDT)

lol wtf you talking about? adding 10-30 damage+bleeding, getting the conditional to trigger is easy with the new title skills out now. casters will just have to use one of those toget the conditional to work, while any "ranged" attackers can get a bonus half second damage with a plus of bleeding for any job to use. 12:07, 25 August 2007 (CDT)
30 seconds Bleeding is quite long, if you can meet the condition this isn't half bad. Followup with Epidemic or combine with Fevered Dreams for AoE 30 second Bleeding. Stronger than Suffering and costs less Energy. If Ranger primary could cause easy Cracked Armor, this would be fun on Cripshots. Except it's PvE only...

It's also a great way to quickly interrupt a dazed caster, or a ranger laying down a trap. I like the idea of a Broadhead Arrow ranger using this and Needling Shot to keep a spellcaster shut down from a distance.--Ninjatek 10:47, 27 August 2007 (CDT)
It says the person takes 10...30 damage, not +10...30 damage. --Blue.rellik 21:19, 30 August 2007 (CDT)
The old Smite had the same wording yet it still triggered Daze. Zulu Inuoe 22:47, 31 August 2007 (CDT)
Think of this little paragonner's combo : "Finish Him!" + Deft Strike . If your guys wasn't dying, he's pretty much getting the toasty after this ( bleed, deep wound + 40-110 damage)--Lullysing 11:47, 8 September 2007 (CDT)

If it's ranged...[edit source]

Does that mean that casters, rangers and paragons can all use it? Or just the "physical" ranged attackers? Or everyone??? Silver40596 15:27, 26 August 2007 (CDT)

This is wanding to death. Anyone not wielding a melee attack can use it.~(unless you're unarmed of course) Seb2net 10:43, 27 August 2007 (CDT)
This after Shell Shock = Ele Bleeding!
Also has some interesting solo farming applications. Apply Shrinking Armor, run away, then do Deft Strike for more degen. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 14:50, 9 September 2007 (CDT)
For a R/Rt or Rt/R, Sundering weapon, body shot, then this...Hugh Manatee 12:46, 1 November 2007 (UTC)
more to the point, it means that casters can trigger skills which work with "attack skills", like so many anthems. -- 19:14, 8 November 2007 (UTC)

Using this on my Dual Attune Air Ele after Lightning Orb. Very fun, if a little illogical. *wonders how a bolt of energy cause bleeding*
