Notes[edit]

  • The projectile flies in a small arc and can actually hit targets outside of the maximum range.
  • If an enemy reflects the arrow, the player is knocked back instead.
  • The damage and push count as separate strikes; single-attack block skills such as Counterblow will prevent the damage, but not the push.
