Return is a behavior of projectiles that causes them to attempt to return to the entity that fired them after they collide with a target, or when they reach their maximum travel distance.

Mechanics

Only one projectile behavior can be applied each time a projectile collides with a target. Return has fifth priority for projectile behaviors, preceded by split, pierce, fork and chain.

When a projectile returns, it bounces off the target it collided with and continues in the direction of the entity that fired it. If the entity that fired the projectile no longer exists, the projectile will attempt to return to the last known location of the firing entity. A projectile can only return once.

Returning projectiles can collide with a previously hit target (as long as the projectile did not return directly from that target). If a set of multiple simultaneously-created projectiles returns, only one projectile in that set can collide with the same target. Projectiles after the first will pass through without dealing damage.[1][2]

Returning does not reset travel distance or projectile duration, thus skills with limited duration/distance, such as Ball LightningBall LightningSpell, Projectile, AoE, Lightning

  • Simplified projectile returning. Previously some effects that caused projectiles to return specified they only did so at the end of their flight, others only from a final target, and a few from either case. Now all effects that cause projectiles to return do so in any case that they can.
  • Projectiles which explode or otherwise destroy themselves only when they cannot move further, such as fireballFireballProjectile, Spell, AoE, Fire
    Level: (1-20)

    , which return will now consistently not do so until after they have returned, just like they don't do so before piercing, forking, or chaining if they have those behaviours. Previously this was inconsistent. As a general rule, if a projectile wouldn't do something when it pierces or chains from an enemy and continues on, it also won't do that when it hits an enemy and returns from them.
  • Projectiles from skills which force them to explode or otherwise destroy the projectile before checking for other behaviours, such as the Concoction skills, will now consistently prevent returning, just like this prevents other projectile behaviours.
  • Projectiles which initially fire at a specific location rather than in a direction, such as Caustic ArrowCaustic ArrowAttack, Projectile, AoE, Duration, Chaos, Bow
    Level: (1-20)
