Blink Arrow is an attack that fires an arrow, upon reaching the destination you are teleported there and a clone is summoned at your previous location. The clone is a minion that uses your bow and quiver.

Skill functions and interactions

When the skill is cast, the player fires an arrow. The arrow takes time to land and the player can take damage during the time it takes for the arrow to hit the ground.

The frame before the arrow lands, the player will still be in his/her old location. Anything trying to damage the player at that location can do so up to and including this frame.

The next frame, the player is teleported, and is now at the location the arrow landed.

Immediately, anything which could damage the player at the previous location but can't at the new one will be unable to damage the player, and vice versa for anything the player comes into range of at their new position.[1]

If the player is suffering any debuff that restricts movement from when the player begins to aim upward to having fired the arrow, the skill is then stopped and put on cooldown.[a] This makes the skill somewhat useless if the player is surrounded by enemies and has low Stun resistance. It is heavily advised to consider the skill as a way to quickly get to a safe location and not as an instant escape method.
