— In-game description


  • This skill doesn't count as a projectile anymore but as a spell area effect and isn't affected by blocking, invulnerability, Aegis, or skills that block projectiles.
    • If the projectile vanishes, the bonus still lingers but no longer sends a projectile out for  Grand Finale.png Grand Finale. This is relevant only during the final fight in Bastion of the Penitent against Deimos, where being teleported to or from the Demonic Realm makes the projectiles dissapear.
