Kalista cannot cancel her basic attack wind-up except by selecting a new target within range, and her basic attacks miss if she loses Sight icon sight of her target before they hit. Additionally, her basic attacks only deal 90% AD physical damage. If Kalista enters a movement command while winding her basic attack or right after using Pierce, she dashes a short distance in the target direction, scaling with her boot tier. While dashing, her basic attack wind-up is only reduced by 0.66% per 1% bonus attack speed compared to the standard 1 per 1.

Upon finishing the ritual, the target becomes Oathsworn to her for the remainder of the game.
