  • This ability is used on a target that is currently under the Damage Over Time effect of a Helix spell.
    • It does not have to be used by the Scholar who applied the Helix.
  • If the ability lands, the DoT effect of the Helix will be doubled, and the remaining duration will be halved.
    • Resist rate is high even on regular enemies, and extremely high on NMs.
    • Modus Veritas will always fail if the current potency of the Helix effect is 5,000 or higher.
