Flicker Strike is a melee attack skill that teleports the character to a nearby enemy and strikes it with their weapon and grants increased movement speed for a short time. If no specific monster is chosen, one is picked at random. The skill has a cooldown that can be bypassed by expending a Frenzy Charge and has a chance to generate a Frenzy Charge when used.

Skill Functions and Interactions

Additional Increased Attack Speed from Frenzy Charges: This attack gets an additional 10% increased attack speed from each frenzy charge, on top of the +4% automatically granted to all attacks from each frenzy charge. Essentially, each frenzy charge will grant attacks made with Flicker Strike a +14% attack speed bonus.

Dual Wielding: Dual Wielding while using flicker strike will cause the player to alternate weapons each attack.
