Siege Attack is a type of ranged Basic Attack that damages all enemies in an small area around the impact location. Like regular Basic Attacks, Siege Attacks initially target an enemy unit. However, instead of homing to the target, the projectile is fixated on the location the unit was at the moment it was fired. Siege Attacks have a rather slow projectile speed and show an area indicator around their destined impact location, which makes it possible to dodge them by simply moving out of the area while the projectile is in the air.
