Player Notes Edit

  • Poison Strike fills a similar role as Biotic Charge, Havoc Strike and Shadow Strike; but has the following differences:
    • Poison Strike does not lock onto a target at any range but instead launches the Turian Cabal Vanguard a set distance, damaging enemies in her path.
    • Poison Strike does not restore the Turian Cabal Vanguard's barrier, but she is invulnerable during the power's animation.
    • Poison Strike does not require locking onto a target, and it can be used to quickly pass through walls, solid objects, or other obstacles.
  • By aiming slightly down into the floor, Poison Strike will cover a shorter distance, allowing a skilled player more accurate jumps. This is particularly useful when reviving fallen teammates. With the Double Dash evolution, the Cabal becomes an exceptional medic.
