  • This ability is not visible in the HUD.
  • Launches a dagger in 0.14 second intervals, starting immediately on cast.
  • The daggers are launched inaccurately, with a maximum spread distance of 50 upon reaching maximum length.
  • The daggers travels at a speed of 500. Once an enemy comes within 50 range of a dagger, it disappears.
  • Upon hitting an enemy, the dagger causes Sabaku Captain to perform an instant attack on the target.
    • Although the daggers may make it look like a ranged attack, the attack still counts as melee.
    • The performed instant-attacks have True Strike, so they cannot miss.
    • Since the damage comes from a regular attack, it does not count as spell damage, but counts as attack damage.
    • This means it is affected by damage block, unaffected by spell damage amplification and cannot spell lifesteal.
  • The daggers reduce the captain's attack damage with a status buff which is applied before the damage is applied and lasts for 0.03 seconds.
