Tactical Information

Gust of Wind is an important skill of the Lore-master in both group and solo content. The miss chance debuff is nice because it is AoE and has a long duration. Since the skill has a short cooldown, you can keep it up on all enemies all the time, even if extra enemies join the fight in a later stage. It is also one of the few debuff skills that deal damage. You will notice that Gust of Wind is a major source of damage in difficult group fights in which the Lore-master's main role is to debuff and supply power and in which he has little time to use his main damaging skills. Furthermore, the damage of Gust of Wind should not be underestimated in situations in which DPS is required: it damages multiple targets and has a short cooldown. This is especially the case when traited down the Master of Nature's Fury line, with it's shorter induction and damage increase.
