Leap towards your specified location, spinning your blades around you as you land. Dealing 125% weapon damage to all enemies adjacent to or on-top of your specified tile. If any hit enemies die within 6 seconds of you hitting them, the cooldown of bladed dive gets reset.
Bladed Dive is a basic Attackability that can be bought from the Shattered Worlds reward shop. It has a base ability damage of 25%-125%. This is the same base damage as Barge, another movement-based melee ability. Bladed Dive does not share a cooldown with any other ability. As with Barge and Surge, this ability is affected by the Mobile perk, bringing the cooldown and possible adrenaline gain down to 10 seconds and 0% respectively.
Bladed Dive may be used outside of the global cooldown. If used in this manner, no adrenaline will be gained - likely for balance reasons (so that players don't get a free 8% adrenaline every 20 seconds, or more often if their target dies in addition to basic adrenaline generation). Further, using Bladed Dive in this manner will not trigger Impatient.
Despite its low damage, Bladed Dive deals area of effect (AoE) damage within a 1 tile radius. In terms of overall damage however, two-handed melee abilities are still capable of significantly more damage against multiple targets. Therefore, the most likely uses of this ability are purely mobility-related, or to replace Slice in single-target situations.
The ability will cause the player to leap towards the specified location, spinning the player's blades around them as they land, dealing damage to all nearby enemies.
Bladed Dive currently suffers from the following bugs:
If used outside of the global cooldown, the ability's cooldown will not reset unless the target enemy was killed - other enemies killed are not considered.
The ability will not actually enter global cooldown, although the ability's icon will appear to indicate that it does. In conjunction with this, if other abilities are already on the global cooldown, their global cooldowns will not be refreshed by this ability.
Bladed Dive can be used while stunned. Because Kalphite King's "beetlejuice" (instant kill) attack stuns without binding, Bladed Dive can be used to escape it.
