Disambig This article is about the deployable skill. For the enemy, see Cleaver (Enemy).

Cleaver is a deployable skill which deploys a bed of sawblades to lacerate and inflict bleeding on enemies walking over them.

Details[]

  • Special Effects:
    • Throws an arcing projectile which explodes on contact with an enemy or a horizontal surface. The projectile will bounce off a Shieldbearer's shield without detonating. Upon exploding, it deploys a bed of sawblades.
      • Cleaver deals damage over time to enemies walking over it at a rate of 2 ticks per second, producing a base tick damage of 17.5.
      • Cleaver inflicts bleeding on enemies for 1.8 seconds, damaging them for 6 DPS per effect.
      • Cleaver can inflict up to 50 ticks before destroyed.
      • Only one bed of sawblades per Cleaver skill is allowed at a time - attempting to deploy a second one will destroy the first one.
      • Cleaver ceases to function if the player moves too far away, but resumes operation once the player comes back into range.
