Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Using a Sentinel weapon with a proper sustained critical hit rate is a good way making use of this Arcane, weapons include:
  • It's crucial to use it on a Sentinels such as Diriga, Djinn, Wyrm Prime, or Taxon whose weapon are modified with a proper range attack mod like with Mod TT 20px.png Eagle Eye.
    • This is because many of their shots miss on mid and high range.
  • It's recommended to avoid using mods like Mod TT 20px.png Vicious Spread or Mod TT 20px.png Heavy Caliber.
  • None of this works if the player is in a stealth state because being so makes a Sentinel stop firing its weapon at enemies.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This arcane was originally dropped in The Jordas Verdict. Following Update 22.14, all Trial missions were retired from the game and the arcane drops in turn were moved to the Eidolons instead.
