Double Strike is a melee attack that performs two fast attacks on a target enemy with the player's main hand melee weapon.

Skill functions and interactions

  • Dual Wielding: This skill will only attack with the main hand weapon while dual wielding.
  • 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.
