      one of the best 1 source skills, along with the obvious dome of protection. this one deals good damage and has a respectable AOE jump effect which also doesnt hurt allies.

        One of the best early/mid game spells imo. If you set the terrain with rain this spell will fork, destroy magic armor, deal a lot of damage and stun the enemies. Thats a lot of value for a 1 source spell. I recommend hiding your mage before you initiate the battle with your bulky character then engage the fight with this spell when you set up the terrain.

          If you're wondering whether or not it can hit one character several times; it cannot. Enemies can only be damaged once, then it jumps to other valid targets. Does not target allies whatsoever.

            Great skill. Just 1 source point makes it incredibly useful, definitely one of the best spells in the game in my opinion. Saved my ass dozens of times.
