        Niche spell, but handy in the right spot. Does a little less damage than a Heavy Soul Arrow overall, and a piercing Soul Spear does more damage, but when enemies don't line up properly this can be a good way to injure an incoming cluster of mobs. In PvP, this can be a good wake-up spell against someone who's been backstabbed or pancaked by Shockwave; forces them to dodge and still get hit, while also winding up a follow-up spell.

          This spell is excellent against large enemies, the Drake at Dragons Aerie get melted by this with few casts. Also Enemies moving away from you will get hit a lot of times too.

            More useful as visual cover for other spells then by itself in PvP. In PvE it is good to clear space as its multi-hit nature stuns regular enemies so that you can get some breathing space againts ganking encounters.
