Slows the speed of incoming missile attacks.
Damage Type: Magic
Through strict martial discipline and focus, an Amazon warrior can attune herself to her environment and the dangers around her, allowing her to react to these hazards with superhuman agility. One aspect of this ability is her knack for avoiding missile fire. Just as the Amazon must master the bow and javelin, she must also learn to defend herself from these same weapons. When an Amazon uses this ability, incoming projectiles appear to move slower than normal, enabling her to avoid them.
As its name suggests, this spell slows incoming missile attacks: for as long as the spell lasts, all missiles coming into its range will fly slower until they are out of the area of effect. The area is always around the Amazon, and moves with her. Slow Missile only reduces the speed of projectiles, not the damage. If player fails to dodge a slowed missile, they are still hit as normal.
Adding points into this ability only lengthens the duration, though it still doesn't last very long. Usually it's best to just spend one point in Slow Missiles as a prerequisite for Valkyrie.
This skill may backfire horribly on the player if used against MSLE monsters, however. Due to the game engine only able to render a finite number of missiles, having too many of them slowed on screen will make some missiles invisible and thus harder to avoid.
