  • The arrows do not count as projectiles. They are merely a visual effect.
  • This channeled skill will be interrupted if you move while the progress bar is still active (first 2.25 seconds).
  • The first 3 hits occur during the skill activation. The remaining 9 hits are dealt by a lasting AoE created at the end of the cast.
  • The 5 enemies nearest to the targeted point on the ground (AoE center) will each receive hits at intervals of 0.6 seconds. If one or more of them die, the next nearest enemies to the center of the AoE will receive the remaining hits.
  • Each successive hit will prolong the Crippled.png Crippled by 1 seconds, for a total of 12 seconds.
  • The damage coefficient of 6 is for the 12 hits. Each hit has a coefficient of 0.5.
