Projectiles are the energy/arrows from long ranged weapons and some long-ranged spells.

Mechanics

  • A projectile requires a clear line of sight, however it does not require a clear flight path.
  • A projectile's trajectory is calculated based on the location and velocity of the target. Projectiles can be dodged by moving out of their paths. Projectiles can also be caused to stray by stopping before moving into their path
  • All projectile weapons have unlimited ammunition.
  • All projectile weapons have increased range and damage when used against lower targets and decreased range and damage when used against higher targets.
