  • The projectile is homing.
  • Damage value is calculated with the weapon strength of the active weapon before shroud is activated. Wiki value assumes unequipped value of 690.5
  • If you are too high or too low from your target, and the skill successfully hits your target, the chill effect will trigger and you will not teleport as you have 'No valid path to target'.
