Forceful Backhand is a threshold ability. Similar to its basic counterpart, it stuns the target for 3 seconds whilst dealing 40-200% ability damage.
Against monsters that are not stun-immune, Forceful Backhand works well in conjunction with Slice or Punish. This is because Slice's damage range is buffed to 80%-146% and Punish deals an extra 94% damage when the target is stunned.This ability shares its countdown timer with Stomp, Tight Bindings, and Deep Impact.
