Chi Wave is a monk class talent.

It is an exclusive choice node with Spell arcane arcanetorrent [Chi Burst].

Tips and tactics[]

  • When activated, it sends out a small green "firework" that will bounce around damaging enemies and healing allies. It can heal or damage the same target multiple times, but not consecutively - it must alternate between an ally and an enemy each bounce. It has a somewhat slow travel time, so if cast while standing away from your party, it can take a while before it starts healing.
