Notes[edit]

  • If there is only one valid target for this skill, it will hit that target once. If there are two valid targets for this skill, it will hit the first target, bounce to the second target, and then chain back to hit the first target a second time.
  • The third hit does 12% less damage than the first two (0.5808 coefficient).
  • This skill's projectile is homing, meaning that it will track its target for a certain amount of time.
  • Attack speed is approximately 1.17 seconds per attack.
