Note: In 1.6 +398 Edina Gramling Hotfix 2 the formula displayed for damage (as above, and in game) is incorrect and not consistent with tooltip for prehensile piercer. Actual damage is (3 to 4) + 1/2(Bonus Damage + Potency).


  • A scorpion tail provides the longest range melee attack in the game. This is quite useful to Warriors and can allow Hunters with Thornfang to kill an additional enemy without needing to spend an action to reposition.
  • When a warrior uses a scorpion tail attack with Broadswipes the range of broadswipes will be equal to the range of the heroes primary attack, which is either their held weapon or an arm theme attack if no relevant weapon is held.
  • Broadswipes can hit an enemy hit directly by the tail attack if the tail attack hits multiple enemies.
  • For non-melee focused heroes a Foxish tail is generally preferable.
