Shrapnel Ballista is a bow attack skill. It summons a ballista totem that fires multiple arrows in a cone. Its damage scales on the player's bow damage.

Skill functions and interactions

Ballista: Shrapnel Ballista is part of the ballista sub-class of totems. Ballista totems have an inherent increase to maximum totem limit. They have a much shorter summoning range, spawning much closer to the summoner.

"Shotgunning": Shrapnel Ballista is capable of hitting a single enemy with more than one projectile from a single skill use. As such, this skill can be used to kill multiple targets or can be used to cause massive damage to a single enemy.

The supported skills' arrows will then fire out in a circle from where it lands. Cannot support skills that already fire arrows into the air, channelled skills, or skills that create Minions.Supported Skills deal (30-16)% less Projectile Damage

, your Shrapnel Ballista will fire a payload arrow on an enemy's location, which upon landing fires all of its projectiles in a nova that can hit the enemy simultaneously (assuming the target does not move out of the way).

Returning Projectiles: Projectiles fired by shrapnel ballista have a limited duration; to ensure projectiles can return to hit the initial target, projectile speed will need to be increased by at least 300%.[1]
