Rain of Arrows is a ranged attack skill that fires a number of arrows in the air, with each of them landing to deal area of effect over a short period of time.

Skill functions and interactions

  • Targeting: Half of the arrows will attempt to target a creature within their range, while the other half will land randomly. A single enemy can be hit multiple times.
  • Additional Arrows: Additional arrows will be added at the outer portion of the Area of Effect, effectively increasing the AoE of the skill.
  • Delay: Rain of Arrows will impact after a delay equal to the attack time, so the first attack will land as the second is being launched. Projectile Speed modifiers affect the delay.
  • Projectile damage: Although Rain of Arrows does not fire projectiles (and therefore cannot by modified by supports such as Chain SupportChain SupportSupport, Chaining, Projectile
