  • Accuracy gives attacking units' attacks a chance to not miss their targets.
  • Also works against the 25% uphill miss chance for ranged attacks.
  • Also works against the target leaving the motion buffer range for melee attacks.
    • The motion buffer range is what causes melee attacks to miss when the distance between attacker and its target gets greater than 300.
  • Successive casts on the same target do not stack, but refresh the duration instead.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The particle effects of Cripple include runes resembling the Elvish scripts from The Lord of the Rings, a novel by J.R.R. Tolkien (specifically the alphabet bee or umbar in Tengwar).
