The Meteor Hammer has a two-fold effect. Firstly, it deals damage to enemies in an area over a brief duration, making them feel the brunt of the celestial impact. Secondly, it lets your hero channel for a few seconds, causing a meteor to crash down on the targeted area ensnaring enemies and damaging structures like towers or barracks.
