Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Though not explicitly stated, Thunder can only be used with one-handed weapons.


  • While many warriors upgrade Probing Attack and Open Flank to their highest ranks, they tend to leave Thunder at a comparatively low rank (~+25). This is because while Thunder is an exceptionally powerful attack compared to the others, it suffers from a 15 second cooldown, and thus compared to other skills makes it a low-yield TP investment. This is balanced by Thunder's aforementioned damage % and its stun, which at max rank will have an enemy stunned 6 out of every 15 seconds, or roughly 40% of the time, making it powerful in PVP and fights where mobs are vulnerable if it is ever used. Conversely, because it is a high cooldown skill, it constitutes very little of an end-game Warrior's DPS and in some cases Warriors avoid spending any TP in it at all.


  • Using Thunder does not actually consume the Weaken debuff caused by Open Flank.
