  • Dual Wielding: Earthquake with Dual Wielding will not function unless a mace or axe is in the main hand. Only the main hand weapon is used to attack.
  • Aftershock: The aftershock is a specific part of the skill that hits. Damage over time effects do not hit and thus are not affected by aftershock multiplier.[1]
