Flying Side Kick

Flying Side Kick is a rune effect in Dashing Strike, a Spirit-spending Monk skill.

This rune effect changes the skill to a flying kick that may stun the target. This is one of the more useful rune effects in this skill, since adding the stun effect is very helpful, especially against boss enemies. This skill does not need to be used from a distance; even in melee combat it's effective and may add stun damage every time it is used, with no cooldown between applications.
