So will this work when you "block" an attack (i.e. Distortion)? In a way it still did no damage and is therefore missed, right?

Yes. Read the description closely and you'll find it expressly says so. -- Serps 14:23, 30 October 2005 (EST)
Well, I was thinking maybe it only works when foe misses from blindness or the 25% from this skill.
Does blocked count as failed to hit? I thought it did not. --Karlos 21:08, 30 October 2005 (EST)
Are you being sarcastic? Because I really don't know if a block/evade counts as missing...
Serps was being serious, since the description says "fails to hit" and not "miss" as the condition. I did a quick test anyway with distortion (evade) and magnetic aura (block) against the doppelganger and every time he didn't hit I gained energy. So, unless every time he missed it was due to the 25% of spirit instead of the 75%s of the other two, "fails to hit" really does mean "attacks but did not hit." To Karlos, I don't think it makes sense (in English) to say "I hit him but he blocked it." I don't know if anything in game to suggest otherwise, especially since spirit counts blocking as not hitting. --Fyren 09:40, 31 October 2005 (EST)
Oh, it makes perfect sense in English. Did the blow land on him? Yes. Did it hurt him? No. That's what "hit him but he blocked it" means. I guess it could be considered as a miss with regards to not achieving it's desired purpose, but I really am miffed at having to figure all that out. This stuff should be clarified by ANet and not left for us to speculate. --Karlos 15:57, 31 October 2005 (EST)
Whatever, I believe failing to hit means failing to deal damage, because Fyren tested it out already.

Nerfs[edit source]

First a recharge nerf and now a cost nerf... seriously, did people -still- use this for e-management after the first nerf? --Xiu Kuro 00:05, 10 August 2007 (CDT)

shit man, there goes my energy management for my IW beastmaster... —ShadyGuy Shadyguysig.gif 12:23, 10 August 2007 (CDT)

Energy return[edit source]

The note about anergy return has been in the article for more than a year now, and noone thought it retarded. I want a better reason. --◄mendel► 00:27, 9 July 2008 (UTC)
