Notes[edit]

  • Detonating splits the bomb into four bombs in a triangular pattern with each inflicting one stack of bleeding. The spread of the smaller bombs depends on the height when detonated. If detonated close to the ground, all four bombs can strike the same foe(s).
  • Each bomb counts as a single attack for the purposes of the Signet of Malice, meaning that it will grant 4 healing ticks if all three bombs strike a target. It will grant one tick of healing for each target struck by each bomb. Therefore, striking 3 targets with all 4 bombs will grant 12 ticks of healing. Combined with a very high critical chance and Invigorating Precision, hitting 3 targets with all 4 bombs would yield 24 ticks of healing from both the Signet and all individual crits.
