Skill functions and interactions

Pierce: Primary projectiles can Pierce, allowing a single target to be struck by both the outgoing and returning projectiles. Does not generate additional Returning Projectiles.

Fork: Forking projectiles do not Return, but the final projectiles return as expected. This can be useful for clearing packs and generates additional Returning Projectiles.

Chain: Works as expected for the primary projectile. Projectile does not Return until it is done Chaining.
