Damage Radius: 125
Channel Time: 1
Damage: 180 / 270 / 360 / 450

Additional Information
During her early years of training, Lyralei learned to fire powerful arrows that cleaved even trees to reach their targets on the other side.

  • Powershot has an instant cast time before the channeling.
  • The arrow travels at a speed of 3000.
  • The arrow can damage units up to 2725 range away (2600 travel distance + 125 damage radius).
  • The full damage is done after the full 1.0 second of channel time. Each channeled 0.01 seconds increase its damage by 1%.
  • Every time the arrow hits an enemy, its current damage is reduced by 10%. The arrow still will travel its full distance.
  • However, the visual effects of the spell do not reflect the current speed. Visually, the arrow will always travel at 3000 speed and travel until the damage reached the full distance.
  • The arrow grants 400 range flying vision as it travels, which sticks at its final location for 3.34 seconds.
  • The arrow destroys trees within 75 radius around it while traveling. Hit trees does not reduce the damage nor the speed.
  • The sound of a bow getting stretched during the cast and channeling time is audible to allies only.
  • This is how much damage the arrow deals (after reductions) and how fast it travels after hitting a certain amount of units:

Channel time is 1 second, for every 0.01 second you get 1% of the full damage. If you channel for 0.5 seconds, you will only get half the damage for example.

How does the damage increase during channeling?
What is the initial damage if Powershot is used without channeling?

Windrunner winds up her bow for up to 1 second to perform a single powerful shot. The arrow travels up to 1700 distance, dealing damage and destroying trees in its path. The damaged dealt is greatest to the first target it hits and is reduced by 10% with each other it passes through.
