    Does anybody use Hit Magic Arrow? If so, why? I'm at a loss for this feature, but it shows up in both imbuing and Mysticism (enchant weapon).

    Ah yes! It takes like 0.5s longer to damage its target than lightning/fireball, right?

    On this topic, how about hit harm? Anything special about that one?

    I don't know of any real use for Hit Magic Arrow. Hit Harm is 100% cold damage in sometimes that is appropriate for specific uses.

    Harm doesn't disrupt Nerve Strike para, so its good on bokutos!

    Pretty sure they changed it at some point so that NO Damage done buy the guy holding the bokuto will interupt the stun he delivered.... Of course this doesn't change the fact that the guy that got hit with the STUN can simply pop a Tbox and since the damage is coming from him at that point he's instantly free. If I remember correctly they changed the bokuto stun and what breaks it when they tweaked all those Spellplague Bokuto Templates.

    Isn't hit magic arrow lower imbue weight than hit fireball? I've never seen it discussed, but it is possible that magic arrow is better damage/second/imbue property weight, if you have say 70 imbue pts left and that is either 33 magic arrow vs 25% fireball. The numbers to be crunched are out there, but I've never seen anyone really look into it. I never use hit spell or hit area when I'm really caring about slayer property, as the slayer damage gets removed from the melee hit when the spell is applied.
