Mechanic: Chain

Chain allows you to make skills that bounce between targets, like a “chain lightning” type skill.

BounceConditions are evaluated after each “bounce” of the skill. With the example, if someone were on the other side of a wall from the mob but you were standing in the doorway, it could bounce from you to them since it bounced around the wall

It will only bounce to the same entity per cast once. Also every time the skill bounces, the entity it is bouncing from will be the “origin” in the skill and the inherited target of onBounce will be the next entity it is bouncing to, so fromOrigin is your friend for making effects!
