While it may look bad at first sight, having less average damage than a T4 Destruction Sphere Spell, this spell has the property of ignoring the defense of the target, making it very effective on high-defense enemies such as golems in the Lost Halls or endgame bosses such as the Void Entity or Oryx 3. Against enemies with 37 or more Defense this spell has a higher average damage than the T6 Elemental Detonation Spell. The spell also gives a small SPD bonus and a decent VIT bonus, which help the Wizard’s mobility and durability.
However, like tiered spells it is very difficult to land all of the shots on enemies, so a more consistent spell like the Recurring Terror Spell may be considered.
