Greater Flurry

Greater Flurry is an upgrade to the Flurry ability unlocked by using a Greater Flurry ability codex, which is obtained from the Dragonkin Laboratory.

Against groups of monsters, Greater Flurry deals damage identical to the original Flurry (18.8%-94% per hit), but it also reduces the remaining cooldown of Berserk by 1.2 seconds for each successful hit Greater Flurry inflicts to any target, up to a maximum of 4.8 seconds reduced.

When used against a single target, the damage per hit is increased from 18.8%-94% to 31.4%-157%, dealing a maximum of 628% ability damage. If used this way, Greater Flurry deals more damage in a global cooldown (314%) than Forceful Backhand affected by Flanking 3 (290%), but slightly less than Flanking 4 (320%).

Despite the description saying that the ability takes 3.6 seconds (6 ticks) to channel, it actually takes 4.2 seconds (7 ticks). The 4 hits will each land 2 ticks apart on ticks 1, 3, 5, and 7, with tick 1 being the tick that the ability was used.

Interaction with Greater Barge[edit | edit source]

If Greater Flurry is used as a damage-over-time after Greater Barge, the damage will not act as an area-of-effect even if there are multiple targets around the player. Also, the damage range used will match that of a single target.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

Prior to the update on 29 November 2021, if Greater Flurry was applied as a damage-over-time (DoT) under Greater Barge, there was a check of how many targets were around the player when calculating damage. If this number was not 1, then each hit did damage corresponding to the range used for its area-of-effect (AoE) values (18.8%-94% per hit). This means that if the player moved away from their target and had no targets around them, reduced damage was applied. Furthermore, the initial hit of Greater Flurry, when applied as a DoT, no longer deals AoE damage nor hits multiple targets, even if there are multiple targets around when applying the hit.
