Tactical Information

Apart from dealing AoE damage and having the ability to restore power after use on a Flank event, Improved Staff-sweep also applies a 15% fire skill critical chance buff to the Lore-master for each target that is hit. It is thus a good idea to use skill at the beginning of a fight in order to maximize your DPS, especially when fighting multiple targets. The buff disappears soon when out of combat.
