  • Dexterity will increase damage for ranged weapons (and some melee weapons), and chance to hit
  • Stamina will lower regeneration time

Usage Strategies

  • Great for jumping past weaker minions to get at a champion or boss standing behind them.
  • Silver mod Impetus is a good choice because it will transform in Assailing Somersault into an area-of-effect CA that damages multiple opponents.

Pros and Cons


  • Useful not only as an offensive and defensive move, this combat art can help cross small rivers and get out of areas your character seems "stuck" in - but only if there is an enemy to target.
  • Can be cast on the ground without a target by holding CTRL before initiating it. This is very helpful for overall navigation around the world, especially with the Spurt mod.


  • Sometimes when performing this combat art against an enemy, the enemy will move out of range and your attack will not be successful.
  • As a weapon-based combat art, it can miss.

Stats Chart

  • Duration (which?) is 0.6 + 0.005*CA-Lvl.
  • Weapon damage multiplier is 1 + 0.004*CA-Lvl and 1.2 + 0.004*CA-Lvl with Brawn.
  • Damage modifer is increased by 36 + 9*CA-Lvl percentage points.
