Inherent Power[]

  • Opportunity
    • Your second shot on a target will reduce its defenses by a small amount
    • Your attacks will build various amounts of “Opportunity” which fill up your Opportunity meter. When this meter is full, the next shot you land on your target using your first or second abilities will add a significant damage resist debuff to the target.
    • Depending on the ability you used (your first or second) you will activate an Opportunity buff that grants you either Offensive Opportunity (First) or Defensive Opportunity (Second).
    • Offensive Opportunity allows you to strike your targets with bonus damage equal to 25% of your attack’s damage while the buff is active. Defensive Opportunity will restore some health and endurance with each attack while the buff is active.
