  • Strangely, this skill is also able to heal downed allies.
If your target is blocking, reflecting projectiles, or invulnerable when the Orb collides with them this skill will become stuck as Orb of Light (sequence) for roughly 15 seconds, or until the detonation sequence is used.
The orb can easily get stuck in various types of terrain.
