Notes:

While it may look bad at first sight, having less damage than a T3 Scorching Blast Spell, this spell has the property of ignoring the defense of the target, making it very effective on high-defense enemies. Against enemies with 39 or more Defense this spell has a higher average damage than the T6 Elemental Detonation Spell.

History:

This item was released in Patch X.31.9.0 (Aug 2019) as part of a rework to the Twilight Archmage Set which saw new soulbound versions of the set items released.

All the existing Archmage Set items which had been in the game since Release 27.3.1 (Feb 2015) were renamed into Legacy versions, including Legacy Ancient Spell: Pierce. Unlike the other parts in the set, the new Ancient Spell: Pierce was unchanged from its legacy version, apart from now being a soulbound version of the spell.
