Notes[edit | edit source]

  • As of Hotfix #6, the ingame tooltip for this action is inaccurate and missing key information:
    • The tooltip does not mention the fact that once you strike the main target, an additional attack is made against every creature within the 3 m / 10 ft radius around that target, including allies.
      • These additional attacks also deal Weapon DamageDamage TypesPiercing damage, including all normal weapon damage bonuses, despite some inconsistencies in the combat log.
      • On-hit reactions such as Divine Smite Divine Smite can be applied to each creature hit by this action (at the cost of multiple spell slots, in the case of Divine Smite).
    • The tooltip claims there is an associated Constitution saving throw, but this is not true.
    • All targets within the radius of the darkness cloud are automatically Blinded, regardless of whether the attack hits them, unless they are immune to being blinded.
