Media[edit | edit source]

The basic skill emulates the "massive wave of arrows" type attack that's popular in medieval and martial arts films, with various demonic/magical modifications from the skill runes. You can see all six functions in the movie below. Turn it up to 1080HD, and play it full screen for the best visuals.

Note that this video was obtained via data mining with an emulator. The rune effects and visuals will be modified in the final game.
