Toxic Rain skill screenshot.jpg

Toxic Rain is a bow attack skill where the user fires multiple arrows in the air, which land and drop spores, dealing chaos damage. The spore pods explode after a delay, releasing toxic ground that deals chaos damage over time and slows enemy movement speed.

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 increase the number of pod you produced, thus increasing your damage.

Sources of increased area of effect allow the damage over time from each spore to overlap.[1] User testing indicates that increased area does not appear to increase the spore-to-spore distance,[2][3] therefore this should improve single-target damage.

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

  • Each Spore Pod now applies 5% less Movement Speed to nearby Enemies (previously 10%), to a maximum of 30% (previously 60%).
3.13.0
  • Now converts 60% of physical damage to chaos damage (from 50%).
3.12.0
