Not to be confused with Salt in the Wound.

Salt the Wound is a Ranged ability that can be bought from the Shattered Worlds reward shop for 63,000,000 shattered anima as a package along with the Greater Dazing Shot ability.

The ability damage range begins at 37.6-188%, and can increase to a maximum of 73.6-368% with Puncture stacked 10 times. Unlike Shatter, the Constitution stack-based threshold ability, Salt the Wound does not remove stacks of Puncture, and instead refreshes Puncture's duration. The duration is refreshed even if Salt the Wound misses (splashes).

Unlike its partner ability Greater Dazing Shot, Salt the Wound does not require a two-handed ranged weapon to use. However, due to its low damage against targets without Puncture and the fact that a two-handed weapon is required to apply Puncture, using Salt the Wound without a two-handed ranged weapon is only advisable if fighting alongside at least one other players who is using a two-handed ranged weapon.
