Temporarily increases your chances of making a critical strike. An equipped dagger weapon is required to use this skill. Effect 3.

What does this do exactly? Does anyone know for a FACT?
I can assume just as anyone can, but what does it really do?


I hope someone knows for sure. Thanks.

P.S. The AW gets it too.

It gives a higher lethal strike landing rate when using your skills.

Great, so together they make no straight answer :eek:.
Well, since NCSoft doesn't seem to care that we don't know for sure what a skill does, I guess we're just left wondering.
How can I believe one player over another? I can't so I'm left wondering.
Also, if NCSoft suggests we "TEST" the skill and notice what it does they need get a clue and realise that you are NOT supposed to test skills to notice what they do, they are SKILLS that you should know exactly what they do, not an misterious item that you have to figure out, ok?

If it would've increased the chance of Mortal Blows it would've been normal to say so like other skills that do this OR if it was supposed to increase lethal chance it should've said just that and not that it increases "critical strike" which means.. NOTHING.
Critical strike does not show up in any other skill name, skill description or "specifications" we have on the official website (or anywhere else). So it increases something that makes no sense in the given context?

Bleah, this is pointless, I'm 99% sure noone will officially say what the skill does, as obviously players can only assume (as expected, no offense !) what it actually does.
1%...

Thanks to those who answered, even on pm :p.

... still hoping for a clear answer and not "assumptions", but I guess that can only be given by an "official".

I got a very confident (and even a justification) on PM, but I will let that user post the answer she gave me if she wants.

Tha answer as I would sum it up, was it influences eveyrthing, both chance to land a blow and the leathal strike chance. This also based on the fact that when you land a blow it says "critical strike" which I ignored :p. I always notice the dmg but forgot about the text :o.

Still, I find it hidden, intially anyway, they should've just said it more clear in the skill description imho. (like they did with other skills influencing such things :p).

Thanks for your patience.

On the C5 PTR, I made a PW and tested Mortal Strike on the Giran manor manager. I saw no difference between land rate. I didn't pay attention to crit rate or lethal rate.

I didn't test it very thoroughly, though. So I'm just assuming like everyone else. I just thought I'd throw it out there.

from what I understand it increase the chance to land a crt on skill.

like wise the only skill PW/AW has that crts is backstab. the other 3 skills PW/AW have don't do crts.

Tho I'm not 100% sure of this.

I know assassination, and hero dagger increase skill chance. I think mortal strike (skill) has a o/e to increase skill land rate. then you also get focus chance at 78; which increases chance to land stabs.

I guessing it increases the chances of a critical strike like sometimes when you use a dagger skill and it says "critical strike" and you do a ton of damage? it probably increases the chance of that occuring. nothing more, nothing less.

NO-

The special skills you see are lethal blow, and lethal strike:

Lethal Blow is only gotten when you use the skill "lethal blow" it has a chance to take your enemy down to 1HP.

Lethal strike- is not a skill - but is a percent chance take away 50% of your targets current HP. NOTE- you can land this several times on an anemy during 1 battle. It takes away only 50% of "current" HP. So if enemy has 2000 HP - you land skill it will now have 1000 hp, like wise if in say in Olympiad and your oponent has 2 HP left and you land skill- he will still have 1 hp left - Remember 50%. Also this "skill" (if you will) only lands while ussing dagger skills ie) Back stab etc..

NOTE- while attempting a lethal Blow- it can fail and you could still land a lethal strike.

To answer the origional question: Mortal strike-
IMO and from my experiences: is like haveing a sws in your party- it adds % chance to land criticals... DURING NORMAL SWINGS. I use it during PvE.

I think I answered this already in PM but here it is this is what it does.

it increases the chances of a critical strike (Deadly Blow, Blinding Blow, Backstab, Lethal Blow, Mortal Blow) these are all critical strike skills that only have a chance of landing they don't all ways land. Mortal Strike Increases that chance. Works even better with my demon dagger with MM and I +++ my Mortal Strike to +5 and now I land dam near every time with the Mortal Strike Buff on. ;)
