      I use this if I want to guarantee a subsequent hit, whether it be a battlestomp or a regular attack. The thing is, your regular hit chance is 95 against an enemy without dodge and it feels absolutely sad when you miss your important CC or finishing blow because of that. But cripple status effect reduces dodging by a huge amount and ensures you never miss.

      • There is a small circle when you highlight the enemy of your range of Crippling blow. That is area of effect of the secondary target. To effectively use it, teleport an enemy right on top of another before using this.

          One of the most underwhelming Martial skills. The description is also misleading, in that it implies you can hit more than one enemy, but after 100 hours of gameplay I have never succeeded in proccing more than 1 enemy, even they are literally touching another.

            To answer the question: How close to the enemies have to be - The characters require proximity to THE TARGET, not the caster of the ability.
            When you mouse over (select) the target, you will see a very small circle appear around the character model, representing the AOE of the attack. This attack CAN friendly fire (and often will) if you have characters that have to be very close in order to attack (such as those with daggers etc.)

            This attack does NOT sweep at everything in the highlighted area when the ability is activated, that is merely the attack's range. Look for the circle around the feet of the target.

              How close do the enemies have to be for this to hit multiple targets? I've had multiple enemies in the "red" area of the skill and guys that are literally right on top each other, and I've never seen it hit more than the original target. Is the tooltip wrong "Cripple the target with a sweeping blow, AND ALL CHARACTERS around it"
