Skill functions and interactions

  • Accuracy: Accuracy is a factor despite the nature of the skill. Ground Slam can miss.
  • Dual Wielding: Ground slam will use both weapons when dual wielding.
  • Reduced Enemy Stun Threshold: This essentially means that enemies struck by Ground Slam have a greater chance to be stunned than with other attacks.
