— In-game description [?]


  • This skill acts in a way like a Projectile; it ends after being affected by Reflect, Invulnerability or Block.
  • This skill can be interrupted early to still pull, but with a shorter cast time.
  • If an enemy is targeted, this skill may fail to activate due to being obstructed, despite no apparent obstruction, and no difficulty hitting the same enemy if the skill was used without a target.
