Smoke Tendrils is a threshold Magic ability, requiring level 75 Magic. When activated, it summons tendrils of smoke to inflict damage on both you and your opponent over time, the damage in your favour.
Smoke Tendrils hits four times, each hit more powerful than the last. The damage the user takes is proportional to the damage they deal. The first hit does not hurt the user; the second hit hurts them by 1/5 the damage dealt, the third by 1/3, and the fourth by 1/2. As with all tendril abilities, it is possible to kill the player who use it if they have low life points.
Smoke Tendrils, along with Blood Tendrils, Shadow Tendrils, and Ice Asylum, is learned by reading the Codex Ultimatus, which is obtained by talking to the Archaeological expert after The Dig Site quest.
- Prior to the patch notes of 9 May 2016, Smoke Tendrils would be cancelled out if the target moved from the spot when the player used it.
