Tips and Details

  • When used against a group of mobs, there is no hit limit for Chain Lightning, but a target can only be hit 4 times because of its duration.
    • Due to the short skill duration, when used from a distance it will only hit a single target 3 times.
  • Chain Lightning will automatically home in on other targets after it hits a target successfully. The homing range in PvE is half a screen but only 1 meter in PvP.
