Ghost pierce a movement ability?

Postby obsoletion » Fri May 18, 2018 4:49 pm

Hi,

Is ghost pierce considered a movement ability for the 25% dodge bonus from the Evade Step passive?

It says ghost pierce is of type pierce/melee, but it moves you... I just want to make sure my build is working properly, as there is no indication I'm aware of that lets you know when a passive kicks in.

Thanks!

Well, it would say 'you dodge' to indicate a dodge passive worked rather than the typical 'it missed' for when accuracy fails

In any case, yes, ghost pierce is a movement ability.

Thanks for the info!

I also have mob cover and evasion passives that are granting dodge chance as well, so I still can't tell when the dodge chance from evade step is active just from seeing that a dodge took place.

Hi obsoletion, and welcome to the forum. :D

wizz already answered you, but yes, in general, if an ability moves you, it is considered a movement ability unless it specifically says otherwise. Likewise, an ability that doesn't move you can be counted as a movement ability if it specifically says it is one.

Good luck in the Tower. :D
