  • Fires a projectile which creates a sound wherever it collides with a surface. This attracts the attention of enemies in a way similar to Alluring Skull.
  • Though Aural Decory works on more enemy types than the Alluring Skull, it often fails to work on larger groups of enemies that can be normally distracted with it (only catching the attention of a select few). The Alluring Skull works more consistently on large groups, and is therefore recommended for the enemies that it works on.
