Hungering Arrow is a Demon Hunter skill in Diablo III. It is based on the classic Amazon skills like Magic Arrow and Guided Arrow.


A magically-imbued arrow flies faster and may home at enemy (making rather sharp angle turns to hit its target). It is very effective when firing off-screen or firing blind.

The first enemy the arrow hits will suffer Physical damage, and there is also a chance that the arrow will pierce through the enemy, continuing its flight (it may even turn around 180 degrees and hit the same target again) with same damage on hit and same chances to pierce again. The cycle can repeat, until the pierce check fails.

Generates Hatred even if it does not hit anything (but only once per arrow).


  • Puncturing Arrow: chance to pierce increases to 50%.
  • Serrated Arrow: damage type changes to Fire, Hatred generation increases to 7.
  • Scatter Shot: damage type turns to Lightning. If the original arrow pierces the enemy, it splits into three similar arrows, although these arrows may not split any further (but may pierce as usual). Damage of split arrows remains same.
  • Devouring Arrow: damage type changes to Cold. Every time an arrow pierces, its damage increases by 70%, stacking directly (that is, 140% increased damage if the arrow pierces twice).
  • Spray of Teeth: a Critical Hit of each arrow will deal 60% damage as Physical to all enemies within 10 yards of the victim, including the primary target, regardless of whether or not the arrow pierces.
