The wielder enters a stance when the skill is held. Selecting the arrow of choice will nock three of them to the bow, and then fire them after a short delay, releasing them in a 70-degree spread.
Depending on the terrain and relative height of the player versus the target(s), this skill can be useful for dealing with multiple foes inside of the optimal range at which the bow excels. The spread makes it less than ideal when shooting at targets above or below the player, however at equal height the side arrows have a decent chance of hitting foes adjacent to the primary target.
Ideally, the bow would be used to harass other players at range, however within lock-on range it can be useful for harrying ganks as an invader if the host and his phantoms can all be corralled into following from a single direction. As well, equipping Dark Arrows will allow the side arrows to curve back towards any valid targets, giving the wielder a means for laying suppressive fire on a single target.
