Hooked Spines is a rune effect in Caltrops, a Discipline-spending Demon Hunter skill.

This rune effect increases the slowing effect from 60% to 80%. This doesn't sound like a huge difference, but as quickly as Elite packs can move on higher difficulty levels, adding 20% more slow down cam make a crucial difference.
