    50 melee damage
    25 use time
    Low knockback​

    When used, it throws itself out like a Flail/Whip. When the left mouse button is released, the chain links (icicles) will detach from the flail handle and its other links, turning into projectiles that move in the direction of where it is fired at without being affected by gravity or losing velocity. The projectiles will bounce 5 times before returning to its owner. The chain can be re-fired before its links/icicles return to its owner.

    No. It is a hyperactice Waterbolt that just happens to be able to be used as a flail. It isn't affected by gravity, it will keep moving until it hits 5 blocks or the edge of the map, etc.

    What if it shoots 10 icicles at once that pierces infinitely (which it does)?

    Water Bolt pierces infinitely AND bounces 5 times. You should try it.

    K i nerfed damage and use time. I just don't want it to deal 1 damage.

    Besides, Water Bolt is 'cost free' once you get mana potions, since Potion Sickness hardly does anything to Water Bolt.

    Piercing actually reduces its effectiveness somewhat, due to the mechanics... if the spread is quite random, I don't see it being overpowered. If it turns out to be OP anyways, we could reduce the projectile count.

    It's original and I like it. I want to see this work.

    Hmmmm... This seems interesting and is good for killing BUT is a bit overpowered. But overall I like it. :)
