Return Fire is a Damage and Recharge Time buff that increases as the user's health decreases. The Recharge Time reduction affects all abilities, even captain skills.


Basic Information[]

  • Specialization: Command
  • Locale: Ground
  • Game Description: A skilled commander can turn the tide of any battle through decisive actions, turning a desperate situation around with a single order. Issuing the Return Fire order will grant you and your 4 nearest allies a bonus to outgoing damage for several seconds, as well as instantly reducing any remaining recharge times. This effectiveness of these bonuses scales up as you and your allies get lower on health, becoming most effective if used in the most dire of circumstances.
