    Blade of Elendil

    Hello.

    I have currently a L62 cappy and can sometimes see that the Blade of Elendil skill is available in mid combat without doing a Devastating Blow/Pressing Attack before. Is there any other skill that puts you in battle hardened state that I am missing?

    Thx a lot

    Crafted Battle Tonics are all that come to my mind.

    We used to get a second chance to use Blade of Elendil if we missed (not a BPE). The skill would light up for a about a second before the time to use it (after DB/PA) would expire. But now that miss chance has been eliminated after the Agility changes, I haven't seen it for some time.

    Were you fighting mobs much higher than yourself (e.g., 4 or more levels higher)? We still have a miss/resist chance against those.

    I have been with mobs 1-2 levels above mostly. Next time it happens I will look for deflects (that is the new name for those old misses from higher level mobs).

    Never used battle tonics yet.

    Thank's a lot!

    This thread from 2011 seems to imply we get a second chance to use BoE if the first try was missed OR BPEd, but since I haven't seen it recently as a level capped captain, I think the second chance might only be on what Turbine calls a deflect now (since miss chance was eliminated).

    I've found I get a second try if, for instance, when I am fighting a troll tyrant at an outpost in the Ettenmoors, and he stuns me as I am using the skill. When I come out of the stun, I am able to use the skill properly, despite the fact that I had clicked it and the animation had activated.

    I have noticed it twice today. After looking in the log, I had a block and a parry in the first BoE. So it also seems to work with B/P/E.

    Thank's everybody for your help
