Beastly Bombs is a rune effect in Rain of Vengeance, a Hatred-spending Demon Hunter skill.

This rune effect is visually impressive, as it summons a squadron of twenty, black, shadowy, flying spectral beasts to swoop overhead, dropping bombs on enemies for 125% weapon damage each. This is basically just the +damage effect, but with more style in the delivery.

Media[edit]

The basic skill emulates the "massive wave of arrows" type attack that's popular in medieval and martial arts films, with various demonic/magical modifications from the skill runes. You can see all six functions in the movie below. Turn it up to 1080HD, and play it full screen for the best visuals.

Note that this video was obtained via data mining with an emulator. It was not released by Blizzard and there will likely be some modifications to the runestone effects in the final game.


Development[edit]

Prior to the skill revision in February 2012, this rune effect was enabled by the Crimson Rune, granting the following effect with a level 7 runestone:
