Reprisal is a threshold Constitution ability unlocked by using the Reprisal ability codex. When activated, it tracks damage taken from all sources for up to 6 seconds. After this time or when reactivated, the player attacks their target for 100% of the damage stored, with a damage cap of 10,000. Reprisal has significantly increased hit chance. The damage has diminishing returns in player versus player combat.

Mechanics[edit | edit source]

Triggering the ability manually a second time can be done outside of the global cooldown. Self-inflicted and both types of typeless damage will be tracked by Reprisal (e.g Vorago's Team Split mechanic, which deals hard typeless damage). It does not count the damage healed by Resonance, so any hit that is mitigated by Resonance will only add a single damage point to Reprisal (because players receive 1 damage through Resonance while healing from the remainder).

Reprisal is locked to the target it was initiated on, meaning that if a player uses Reprisal on one target and then begins attacking another while the original target is still alive, Reprisal will still damage the target it was initiated on.

Reprisal damage can be increased by the Berserker aura, the Maniacal aura, the Reckless aura, the Mahjarrat aura, and Vulnerability.

Unlike Transfigure, a similar ability that stores damage to later heal the user, the player is not bound or stunned when using Reprisal and is free to perform other abilities and actions during its 6-second timeframe.
