Split Arrow is a ranged attack skill, firing multiple arrows in a spread pattern.

Skill functions and interactions

  • Additional Projectiles: Like all bow attacks which fire more than one projectile simultaneously, a single enemy cannot be hit by more than one projectile per attack. If multiple arrows are on course to impact any given monster, all but one will ignore that monster and travel past to potentially hit enemies behind the first one encountered.

    will be applied to the number of arrows that split, not the base number of arrows the skill fires. In other words, a level 20 Split Arrow with Lesser Multiple Projectiles will shoot 11 arrows and hit up to 11 targets. Adding Fury Valve will result in Split Arrow firing the base 9 projectiles which split off to hit up to an additional 36 (9 * (2 + 2)) targets.
  • Arrow Spread: The angular spread of Split Arrow's projectiles can be controlled by aiming closer to or farther away from the player. The spread will be smaller when aiming further away and larger when aiming closer.
