  • Sends a piercing projectile along the ground in a straight line towards the target, immobilizing up to 5 enemies on contact.
  • The projectile(s) from this skill 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).
  • After hitting 5 enemies, the chain will simply disappear, unlike most other linear skills.
