Skill functions and interactions

  • Dual wielding: Lacerate when dual wielding always does a main-hand hit followed by an off-hand hit.[2] In the case of having an off-hand weapon other than a sword or axe, the skill cannot be used.
  • Base radius of Lacerate is 38 units.[3]
  • Lacerate interacts with Blood and Sand Stance, gaining bleed chance and more bleed damage in Blood Stance, and gaining a wider wave in Sand Stance.
