  • This skill pierces.
  • The projectile moves very slowly, making the skill unpractical against moving enemies; it is only reliable at point-blank range.
  • The projectile from this skill keeps to the ground, meaning that it can be aimed only horizontally; its path vertically is always along the ground. It also means that targets cannot be hit if there is a gap or large elevation in the ground between the target and the caster (eg. harpy jumping puzzle in Uncategorized Fractal).
