A system has been added that will automatically add divination cards and other items to the item acquisition sections where appropriate. Entries added by this system will be shown as automatic in the item acquisition section.

Some pages will need to be updated to include upgraded_from_disabled=true if they are not eligible for the system.

Double Strike skill screenshot.jpg

Double Strike is a melee attack that performs two fast attacks on a target enemy with the player's melee weapon(s). It deals bonus physical damage against bleeding enemies.

Skill functions and interactions

  • Multiple Hits: This attack hits twice, activating gain on hit twice, and giving two opportunities to activate chance-based effects such as blind, knockback, stun, and elemental status ailments. It does not, however, have two chances to crit. If one hit is a crit, the other will also be a crit.
