    Projectiles and wave of force

    Wave of force reflects projectiles. Has anyone played with this mechanic?

    I tested it the other night against skeletal summoners, it works, however it does not always send the projectiles back at the target.

    Probably (super likely) angle based, hence why it won't send back to user unless its coming strait at you. Wonder how useful that'd be, versus its damage.

    The other thing im curious about is how it handles channelled spells. We saw in the earley beta, when an arcane enchanted mob was killed, that those beams of channeled arcane energy went after players. What happens when a wizard casts wave of force and those are present? What about PVP when a wizard casts ray of frost or disintegrate?

    I will try testing this tonight and see how projectiles are reflected and post my findings. Time to find groups of skeleton archers!

    Those aren't considered projectiles, so they won't be affected.

    Arrows are certainly reflected.
    The angle at which the arrows approach does not matter at all. I could not find out if the reflected arrows would damage any other targets yet.

    I am trying to find out whether spellcasts from those Skeletion Summoners are reflected as well.

    The reflection is nice, but since the spell is not spammable its uses are limited. Though teleporting into a mob of ranged attackers will certainly give you an edge.
