    PVP Open Wounds Question...

    Let's say a barb fires arrows from a Um'd Widowmaker (um=25% open wounds). Now let's say that BEFORE the arrow hits an opponent, he switches from Widowmaker to some other set-up.

    Does the 25% Open wounds from Um STILL kick in? Despite his having switched to his alternative set-up before the arrow struck?

    Thanks

    The Open Wounds would have a chance of kicking in. Same with critical/deadly strike, CB, knockback, etc.

    Thanks RTB, I knew that if only one knew the answer, it would likely be you.

    That Gothic bow doesn't have Guided Arrow, does it? That's why people use Widow, purely for the GA.

    I made a small mistake here, the effects from the gear you're equipped with at the moment of impact is checked for special effects. So the OW from the Um would not kick in when switched to the other gear.
