*Despite what the description says this skill actually forces the bow arc into near-horizonal, lower than recurve bow. This means arrows shot from a [[Flatbow|flatbow]] will travel about four times faster than normal, while [[Recurve bow|recurve bow]] shots will gain almost no additional speed. In any case the shots will be more accurate and harder to [[Dodge (action)|dodge]].

Notes

  • Despite what the description says this skill actually forces the bow arc into near-horizonal, lower than recurve bow. This means arrows shot from a flatbow will travel about four times faster than normal, while recurve bow shots will gain almost no additional speed. In any case the shots will be more accurate and harder to dodge.
  • Read the Wind is a useful preparation in a ranger spike build, as it doesn't change the damage type to elemental, keeping the bonus damage from Winnowing and the orders.
  • Read the Wind adds damage to base, hence increasing overall damage output whilst not dealing damage in pairs, hence reducing the effects of absorption and armor. Thus, against higher armor targets, it is more beneficial than Kindle Arrows or Ignite Arrows.
