Skill functions and interactions

  • Projectiles: By default, a geyser fires 4 projectiles every second over an 8-second duration, or 32 total projectiles. Each projectile can hit the same enemy.
    • Additional projectiles add to the number of projectiles fired per second; for example, Greater Multiple Projectiles SupportGreater Multiple Projectiles SupportSupport, Projectile

      Requires Level 38Supports projectile skills.Supported Skills deal (35-26)% less Projectile Damage
      Supported Skills fire 4 additional Projectiles

      Additional Effects From 1-20% Quality:
      Supported Skills deal (0.5-10)% increased Projectile Damage

      will increase the projectiles per second to 8, or 64 total projectiles.
    • As the rate at which projectiles are fired is fixed, increasing skill duration will multiply the number of projectiles fired over the geyser's duration. For example, a 12-second Cremation fires 48 projectiles, not 32.
  • Critical strike chance: Each projectile rolls its own critical strike chance independently.
  • Cast speed: Cast speed only affects the speed to cast the geyser. The frequency of projectiles being fired is not affected by cast speed.
  • Area of effect: AoE affects both the area of the projectile's hit as well as the distance the projectile is able to travel. AoE also scales the initial corpse explosion.
  • Projectile speed: Projectile speed affects the speed at which a fired projectile hits the ground, but does not affect AoE.
  • Pierce and Chain: Cremation projectiles are ground targeted and unable to make use of any projectile behaviours.
  • Reflect: The damage from the corpse explosion cannot be reflected. The spell damage portion of the spell can be reflected, however.
  • Orb: Cremation being an orb skill prevents it from being supported by Sacrifice SupportSacrifice SupportChaos, Support, Spell
