Siege Ballista skill screenshot.jpg

Siege Ballista summons a ballista totem that fires a powerful, piercing bolt after a build-up time. The bolts scale on the player's weapon damage. The totem suffers an attack speed penalty but deals increased base damage. Siege Ballista's range is 80 units.

Skill Functions and Interactions

Ballista: Siege Ballista is part of the Ballista sub-class of totems. Ballista totems have inherent added totem limit. They have a much shorter summoning range, spawning much closer to the summoner.

Bow: Because of the Bow Gem tag, Siege Ballista requires that a bow is equipped in order to be cast.

Since Siege Ballista's attacks are also bow attacks, effects such as Point Blank and Chin Sol'sChin Sol

That is not the case when fighting the Maraketh.
close range bonus apply. For the range-dependent effects, bonus damage is based on the target's distance from the totem making the attacks.

Attack: Siege Ballista fires ranged attacks that scale off of base attack damage, and thus scale directly off of the player's equipped bow and other attack stats. Siege Ballista fires at 50% of the attack speed of the equipped bow. Siege Ballista attacks can be evaded.
