General Information

Class: Lore-master

Level: 68

This skill will replace Staff-sweep.

Traits

The set bonus Hasten (5) in the Master of Nature's Fury tree adds a cooldown reduction of Sticky Gourd, Lightning-storm and Ents go to War to this skill.

Effects

Using this skill causes Improved Staff-sweep to occur on yourself for each hit on an enemy target. This effect stacks to up to three times.
Using this skill should cause Staff-sweep Power Restore to occur on yourself if you hit an enemy target while it is under the Flanked! effect. However, this is currently (writing September 2018, most current Update 22.5) bugged and does not apply. Instead, Wizard's Fire incorrectly bestows a single power restore (in addition to the intended health restore).

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. Using the skill at the beginning of a fight is a good way to maximize your DPS, especially when fighting multiple targets. The buff disappears soon when out of combat.
