Elemental Arrow is a Demon Hunter Secondary skill in Diablo III. It bears some resemblance to Amazon skills like Fire Arrow, Cold Arrow, Exploding ArrowIce ArrowImmolation Arrow and Freezing Arrow.


Fires a charged arrow that pierces through all enemies in its path (roughly 80 yards), hitting each for Fire damage. It counts as missile, and cannot pierce through obstacles.


For the Sorceress Skill of same name, see Ball Lightning.
  • Ball Lightning: damage type changes to Lightning, arrow transforms into a piercing orb that slowly drifts forward, hitting all enemies within 10 yards for 300% damage as Lightning per tick.
  • Frost Arrow: damage type changes to Cold, damage increases to 330%. Arrow no longer pierces, instead splitting to 10 additional arrows after the first hit, spraying over 160 degree arc behind the main target, also dealing 330% damage as Cold each. Every enemy hit is chilled by 60% for 1 second.
  • Immolation Arrow: the arrow no longer pierces, but instead explodes upon reaching the enemy, dealing initial damage to the target and immolating the ground within 10 yards for 315% damage as Fire over 2 seconds. Multiple fire pools in one area stack.
  • Lightning Bolts: damage type changes to Lightning, Critical Hits also Stun enemies for 1 second.
  • Nether Tentacles: damage type changes to Physical, arrow transforms into a piercing orb that slowly drifts forward, hitting all enemies it pierces through for 300% damage as Physical per tick and healing the Demon Hunter for 0.4% of maximum Life per enemy hit per tick.
