  • Despite having a cooldown of 30 seconds, Chain Rush.png Chain Rush's buff cannot be refreshed while its buff is active. It can only be cast after Chain Rush.png Chain Rush ends as a buff.
  • The first use of Chain Rush.png Chain Rush is a buff. While the buff is active, using applicable skills will result in a blue meter, with a white bar going back and forth, appearing above the character's head. Some skills will not trigger this bar.
    • When the blue meter appears, the Elven Knight must press the hotkey or key command for Chain Rush.png Chain Rush in order to do land an extra hit, while keeping the white bar in the blue.
    • Chain Rush.png Chain Rush can be used in the middle of other skill animations, allowing for more damage if timed correctly.
  • The direction of Chain Rush.png Chain Rush's extra attack can be changed. Holding down the direction the character is facing will execute a dash attack.
  • Chain Rush.png Chain Rush becomes stronger as the Elven Knight lands a successful hit on the enemy or dungeon obstacle.
    • As each successful Chain Rush.png Chain Rush hit lands, another skill must be used or the Chain starts over.
    • For each successful hit, the blue bar becomes smaller, having the Elven Knight time their Chain Rush.png Chain Rush.
      • This can be done up to 5 times. At "Chain x5" the damage bonus is peaked and can be done repeatedly.
    • Lighter blue bars appear along the edge of the primary bar, hitting Chain Rush.png Chain Rush within those bars will not increase the Chain Bonus but instead keep the Chain Bonus count without resetting it.
      • These light blue bars also diminish with each increasing Chain Bonus count, disappearing entirely after achieving "Chain x5" a few times in a row.
  • Chain Rush.png Chain Rush loses the Chain Bonus when:
    • The Elven Knight uses another skill without using Chain Rush.png Chain Rush.
    • The Elven Knight misses with the Chain Rush.png Chain Rush attack
    • Waiting more than 3(?) seconds.
    • Missing the blue area when using Chain Rush.png Chain Rush.
  • Using skills that cannot be used with Chain Rush.png Chain Rush will reset the Chain Bonus.
  • Despite the tooltip, Impregnable Defense.png Impregnable Defense does work with chain rush, however, it does not get the additional skill damage. In addition, Impregnable Defense will maintain the combo for its full duration allowing you to pause a combo while your skills cool down.
  • Disarm.png Disarm and Harbinger of Life.png Harbinger of Life will hold the combo as long as the Elven Knight continues to charge them, allowing time for other skills' cooldowns to reset.
  • While Chain Rush.png Chain Rush can cancel into Chain Strike.png Chain Strike, Chain Strike.png Chain Strike cannot cancel into Chain Rush.png Chain Rush
    • Chain Strike.png Chain Strike consumes the Chain Bonus count, resetting it from the beginning.
  • Shield of Courage.png Shield of Courage temporarily boosts the Atk. Bonus of Chain Rush.png Chain Rush as well as increase the Chain Bonus starting count and the maximum Chain Bonus count.
