  • The Enmity generated by your next attack (or Weapon Skill and potential Skillchain) is transferred to a player in front of you.
    • For Thief main job, damage is calculated by adding the AGI stat to weapon damage at the time the blow lands if the enmity-transferring conditions are met.
    • When added to Weapon Skills, the base damage is outside of the fTP multiplier. For high fTP WSs (like Rudra's Storm) this means that the base damage boost plays a relatively minor role in determining the final damage.
  • This ability guarantees 100% accuracy when the activation conditions are met.
    • Accuracy bonus also applies to the offhand hit when dual-wielding.
  • Assassin makes this job ability deal a critical hit if the enmity-transferring activation conditions are met (there is another player between the Thief and the monster).
  • Ranged attacks are unaffected, and do not cancel the ability.
  • Counter is affected, but does not cancel the ability.
  • Equipment must remain on to increase effect.
