  • Funnel Trail and Vortex Trail can either be fired at a foe, in which case other enemies will be drawn to them; or it can be fired at a solid object, in which case enemies will be drawn to that object.
    • A foe struck with the arrow will still be free to move, though others will be attracted to it.
    • By lodging it into a large enemy such as a Golem or Cyclops, it is possible to have that enemy dispatch the smaller foes.
  • Does no damage.
  • The number of attractive arrows that can be active at a time does not seem to be limited, though casting time and spell duration will typically limit the number to five or fewer.
  • Fire the arrow into a vertical surface such as a cliff face in order to cause enemies above it to be drawn to it and possibly fall to their deaths.
  • The pull of Vortex Trail is very strong and can even pull Golems and Eliminators into its radius.
  • Can also anchor flying enemies that dive into its radius.
  • Effective in combination with spells with an area of effect, such as Explosive Bolt, or a dagger spell such as Grand Scension.
