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/Projectiles: Any source of additional arrows/projectiles is added to the total number of arrows fired, thus making support gems like Lesser Multiple Projectiles SupportLesser Multiple Projectiles SupportSupport, Projectile

    very inefficient. 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: Like any Bow skill, Rain of Arrows deals projectile damage and will be affected by any appropriate damage modifiers, such as Vicious Projectiles SupportVicious Projectiles SupportProjectile, Attack, Physical, Chaos, Support
