Rain of Arrows is a ranged attack skill that fires a number of arrows in the air, which deal area of effect projectile damage as they land. Arrows initially fall at the targeted location, then spread outward.

Skill functions and interactions

  • Arrow placement: Half of the arrows fall randomly within the skill's area of effect. The other half picks targets in a series of rings around the targeted location.[1]
  • AoE: Each arrow deals area damage where it lands. A single enemy can be hit multiple times, though the likelihood of this depends on the skill's area of effect modifiers and enemy size. Against an average-sized boss, 2-5 hits per attack is a realistic expectation.
  • Additional Arrows/Projectiles: Additional arrows will be added at the outer portion of the area of effect, increasing its coverage, but not damage to individual targets. Support gems such as Greater Multiple Projectiles SupportGreater Multiple Projectiles SupportSupport, Projectile

    are likely unattractive, as their projectile count is additive with the large arrow count this skill has by default.
  • Attack speed: The skill's attack speed affects both the user's attack animation and how fast arrows strike the ground.
  • Travel distance: Effects like Point Blank use the distance between where the skill was used and the enemy that was hit.
  • Projectile behaviours: Projectiles from Rain of Arrows do not collide with enemies or terrain; they cannot use mechanics like Pierce or Return.
