  • Does not target enemies in stealth.
  • Fires a projectile at up to three nearby foes, thus will cause 3 stacks of Torment when combined with the trait Abyssal Chill.
  • Multiple projectiles can affect the same foe when enemies are lined up, when you're inside one of them or when there is only one target.
This skill will target seemingly non-existent enemies.
Does not produce burning bolts in a fire field, despite pop-up text indicating it does.
