  • The projectile 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).
This skill hits twice: once with a 1200 range wave and once with a ~130 range melee attack. This is not noted in the tooltip.
