  • This skill's projectile is homing, meaning that it will track its target for a certain amount of time.
  • After each hit, the projectile bounces to the closest available target (hostile or friendly) within 600 range. It is possible to have all the subsequent bounces ricochet between you and/or your allies. If no target is within range, the projectile stops.
  • If the projectile hits an invulnerable target, the projectile is destroyed and will not bounce any more.
  • If multiple hostile targets are grouped closely together, then it can deal out a total of 20 stacks of vulnerability divided between two to five targets.
  • This skill can bounce between same target multiple times in a row if target is affected by movement skills like Acid Bomb.
  • This skill attempts to bounce off objects, which results in the projectile to become obstructed and vanish.
