only apply to the final spiral of shards.

Projectile Behaviors: The standard behaviors of projectiles, such as Pierce, Fork, and Chain do not apply to the primary "eye" projectile, as the eye does not actually collide with enemies. These behaviors do apply to the secondary shard projectiles, however.

Projectile Speed: Modifiers to projectile speed affect both types of projectiles from this skill- the eye and the secondary shard projectiles. If projectile speed is increased, for example, the eye projectile travels further than it normally would, as do the shard projectiles, which would travel further before they dissipate. This can effectively increase the level of crowd control of this skill. Bear in mind, however, that the faster the eye projectile, the larger the gap formed between shard projectiles unleashed in the spiral; this may cause single targets close to the caster to take less damage than if the eye projectile travels slower.

Spiral of Shard Projectiles: This skill fires an "eye" projectile which fires out secondary "shard" projectiles as it travels. These shards are released constantly as the eye travels, and if a target is directly in the center of the eye, the multiple shards can hit that target. This behavior also applies to the final spiral that is triggered upon the eye projectile reaching the end of its lifetime (through reaching its maximum distance or colliding with terrain). Though it may look like an explosion, it is indeed a very fast sequential spiral, meaning that with careful positioning by the player, a single target may be hit by all projectiles in this last spiral, effectively "shotgunning" this target.

Traps and Mines: This skill can be turned into traps or mines with the appropriate support gems.
