Trivia

  • Prior to version 1.6 of the game, Thornlash had a default 1:1 scaling for Potency and Bonus Damage in line with the scaling on most upgraded abilities.
  • Prior to version 1.6 of the game, Vine Legs provided +5 Dodge and -0.3 Speed. The high dodge and ranged transformation attack made Botanical a favorite for Dodge build Hunters which aim to stack enough Dodge and Block to be missed by all attacks that are not Flanking, allowing the hunter to retaliate safely with Archery and Riposte attacks. Due to the limited range of transformation attacks, Sharpshooter and Long Reach were highly suggested for these builds. Other dodge boosting themes and items include Crowtouched wings, the pet Duck, and the Night Shard weapon.
