Toxic Rain is a bow attack skill where the user fires multiple arrows in the air, which land and drop spore pods, dealing chaos damage over time and slowing enemy movement speed for their duration. The spore pods explode after a delay, dealing chaos damage.

Skill functions and interactions

The explosion of the Spore Pods counts as a hit, which allows for rapid application of "on hit" effects such as poison, or life and mana gain on hit.

Increasing the number of projectiles increases the number of pods you produce, thus increasing your damage.

Accuracy affects all hit portions of the skill but does not affect the damage over time of the pods.

Sources of increased area of effect allow the damage over time from each spore to overlap.[1] This also increases the spread of the pods.

Spore explosions and arrows count as "kill with this weapon," but the damage over time component does not.

Optimal Single Target Setup

Due to area of effect breakpoints, optimal single target damage can be achieved by increasing your AoE at least 37%, but not more than 43%.[2][3] The easiest way to obtain this include:

  • 20% increased Area of Effect while wielding a Bow Bow Mastery
  • A small Bow passive behind Deadly Draw grants 12%, and two nearby Mace passives each grant 5%
  • +1 AoE gem/increased AoE crafted Veiled mod on helmets/gloves (8-10%)
  • x% increased Area of Effect Searing Exarch Eldritch implicit mod on helmets (7-8% (Lesser) to 11-12% (Grand))
  • Corrupted jewels (any kind) (4-5%)
