Tempest Rush was first seen at the July 2011 Press Event, where it was a level 16 skill. Unfortunately, no information about the skill's function was available.


The beta started in September 2011, and Tempest Rush stayed at level 16. The skill system was once again overhauled for the Beta Patch 13 in February 2012, and Tempest Rush was classified as a Secondary skill and moved to level 12. For Beta Patch 14, it was dropped to level 5.
