Sunder is a melee attack creating a wave that travels forward and damages enemies in a straight line. Enemies hit by the wave release circular shock waves that further damage nearby enemies. Requires an axe, mace or staff.

Skill functions and interactions

  • Accuracy: Sunder only needs to pass an evasion check to cause a shockwave on a specific enemy – the shockwave will hit all enemies in its range, regardless of evasion.[1]
  • Area of Effect: Increases to area of effect will increase both the area of the wave and that of the shockwave created. [2] Note however that only the wave's width is modified. The length of the wave is either constant or the impact of aoe is much smaller. For this reason using Concentrated Effect while still maintaining a high effective area is possible.
  • Dual wielding: Sunder 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.
