— In-game description


Jurisdiction is a channeled skill which has three charge levels, each with additional effects. Charge levels are indicated visually by the skill's animation and sound effect.

  • At charge levels 1 and 2, channeling can be ended early by pressing Jurisdiction's sequence skillFire Jurisdiction.png Fire Jurisdiction, which shoots a projectile with a corresponding effect.
  • When fully channeled, it reaches charge level 3 and automatically fires a slower moving projectile, granting access to skill  Fire Jurisdiction.png Detonate Jurisdiction. Detonation provides an AoE effect, including knockback against multiple enemies.
  • Pressing and holding the skill's hotkey results in automatically shooting and detonating a charge level 3 projectile at melee range.
