Power Siphon is a wand attack skill that fires multiple projectiles which generate and have extra bonuses from Power charges. The projectiles have Culling Strike.

Skill functions and interactions

The skill doesn't follow typical ranged attack rules; instead of physically firing projectiles out of player's wand in a cone, they are fired from within the player at nearby targets within a circle. If there are no nearby enemies, the character will play a casting animation but no projectiles will be fired. Because of that, it acts more like a spell than an attack. It is impossible to "pre-fire" at enemies if no targets are within targeting range.

Power Charges generation: The text "...granting you a power charge if an enemy is killed by, or soon after, the hit." means enemies killed within 0.5 seconds of taking damage from a Power Siphon's hit will grant a power charge, even if killed by a minion or ally. This duration is inherent to the skill and is not modifiable in any way. [1]

: When supported by Locus Mine, Power Siphon overrides the aim-at-player behaviour, continuing to fire at each nearby enemy. Because each mine can hit the same enemy, this provides a significant increase in single-target damage.
