Fires powerful darkened soul dregs that home in aggressively on the target.

Strategy Edit

As the spell travels slowly, depending on distance and cast speed, the player can have multiple copies of this spell active. The low cost combined with the respectable damage and the amount of dregs that can be fired in quick succession is the true strength of this spell. In PvE, this spell can make short work of enemies not resistant to dark due to the ease with which it is spammed.

In PvP, this spell is superior to the Soul Arrow variants due to superior homing abilities, spam-ability and slower speed which can throw some players off.
