Required Level: 3
Skill Category: Primary
Generate: 12 Spirit
Project lines of pure force over a short distance for 150% damage as Physical.
Every third hit has a 50% chance to knock enemies up into the air.
Damage Type: Physical
Other Stats: Combo Strike
Deadly Reach is a Primary Monk skill.
In-game[edit | edit source]
The lines of force hit all enemies they reach. Each line is 2 yards wide, the first hit extending 6 yards, the second 12 yards and the third 18 yards.
As with other Combo skills, to gain the combo hit, Monk does not need to hit the same target three times or even stand in one place: the hits just need to be done within a reasonable time.
Runes[edit | edit source]
- Piercing Trident: the second hit splits into two lines roughly 50 degrees from each other, and the third hit splits into three, 50 degrees from each other. The chance to knock enemies up on the third hit increases to 100% (unlocked at level 9).
- Searing Grasp: damage type changes to Fire, and increases damage to 260% (unlocked at level 18).
- Scattered Blows: damage type changes to Lightning, and the third strike also creates 3-6 6-yard blasts scattered anywhere within 25 yards, each dealing 216% damage as Lightning (unlocked at level 34).
- Strike from Beyond: damage type changes to Cold, and for each enemy hit by the third strike, reduces the Spirit cost of the next Spirit-spending skill by 8%. The Spirit cost reduction may stack up to 100%, but is overridden by the next third hit (unlocked at level 47).
- Foresight: the third strike also increases the damage of all attacks by 15% for 5 seconds, but only if it hits an enemy (unlocked at level 54).
