Spectral Helix is an attack skill. It throws the current melee weapon, making it spin in a large spiral, damaging enemies in its path. If the weapon collides with walls, it bounces a number of times.

Skill Functions and Interactions

  • Sniper's Mark - Projectiles that hit the marked enemy have their behavior overridden by the mark, they no longer spiral.
  • Fork/Chain/Pierce - As the projectile will inherently pierce enemies, Fork and Chain will have no effect.
  • Additional Projectiles - Sources of additional projectiles, such as Lesser Multiple Projectiles SupportLesser Multiple Projectiles SupportSupport, Projectile
