Full: Needling Shot strikes for only 10...26 damage and moves faster than normal. If Needling Shot strikes a foe below 50% Health, Needling Shot recharges instantly. Your other attack skills are disabled for 2 seconds.
Concise: Fast-moving arrow. Deals 10...26 damage. Recharges instantly if target foe is below 50% Health. Your other attack skills are disabled (2 seconds).
This skill allows arrows to be fired at a much higher rate than normal, especially on targets under 50% health. Consider using it with skills that trigger on hit such as Choking Gas or stacked damage bonuses.
Despite it saying it recharges when it strikes a foe below 50% health, it will recharge if the shot fails to hit as well.
The instant recharge applies the moment the arrow is released, not when it hits the target. Thus, if the target heals himself above 50% health while the arrow is in the air, the skill will recharge instantly, and if the target has more than 50% health when the arrow is fired but takes damage that would drop his health below 50% while the arrow is in the air, the skill will take four seconds to recharge.
The instant recharge works through the effects of Diversion and other skill-disabling effects.
