Playing with my Demon Hunter a bit, it seems like a lot of skills have hidden properties which are not mentioned in the skill description (even in the expanded one).

For instance, Hungering Arrow ricochets off walls and obstacles back towards a monster, in practice giving it a higher damage. Evasive Fire greatly increases the projectile speed, making it more efficient for taking down ranged enemies moving laterally (like wasps), etc.

Is there anywhere, in-game or out-of-game, I can see these "hidden attributes" listed? Or is experimentation the only way?

  • I've also noticed that Hungering Arrow can "double back" on a mob if it pierces through them. Quite nice :)

  • I would wager these are less "hidden properties" and more "game knowledge". Knowing that Deadly Reach is faster than One Hundred Fists isn't a property of the skill, it's just knowledge of the relative speeds of the skills. May 18 '12 at 21:45

Many of these types of effects in games are learned from simply playing the game more. I don't envision these being available from an official Blizzard source, since it would be quite overwhelming for most to make use of the information - save the most advanced players.

The other side effect of this is that it encourages players to explore more skills and mechanics to master the game.

    Don't forget to make use of advanced tool tips and the 'details' section of the character sheet for more clues.
