Using a shield such as the Chargin' Targe or the Tide Turner will maximize the effect of this weapon, as it will allow you to close the distance between enemies and get in close-quarters to melee them.
- Both the name, appearance and effect of this weapon are a reference to Kunkka from Dota 2, as one of his abilites, named 'Tidebringer', causes his next melee attack to deal damage in a very large area every few seconds.
