Beckons the target forward, attempting to place them adjacent to the caster.

Lesser Beckoning pulls a single target adjacent to the caster. It won't move victims into instakill terrain (lava etc), but will move them over such terrain, and can move monsters into traps. It requires line of fire for enemies to be affected, and its range increases from 2 to 7 with spell power.

Strategy

Lesser Beckoning is mostly useful for slow characters, such as Nagas or worshippers of Cheibriados, for pulling enemies to you so that you can hit them in melee, however at higher power levels it is useful for all characters, since it can pull enemies in from anywhere on-screen. This helps you kill them before taking loads of ranged attacks.
