The trait Basic Strikes in the Recklessness trait tree increases the damage of this skill by up to 25%.
The set bonus Unconventional Strikes in the Recklessness trait tree increases the chance for this skill to apply the Morale-tap Damage buff by 15%.
The set bonus Snap Shot in the Assailment trait tree gives this skill a chance to enable one of your Javelin skills, even if it is on cooldown.
This skill is one of the Warden's three Gambit Builders. It adds a Shield to the Gambit panel. Gambits that start with a Shield tend to focus on buffing or healing the Warden.
