As of Version 1.08, Acid Surge will deal approximately 110 Durability damage if the opponent stays within the cloud for the entirety of its duration. When cast at point blank, it will deal approximately 20 Durability Damage.
- Can be used around corners and through objects.
- Often used as a "smoke screen" in pvp, to confuse your opponents, since its primary use is kind of limited.
