Notes[edit]

  • Aimed at the center of a single stationary target the size of a PvP target golem, Lightning Orb will hit 14 times on average.
  • Can be used off of some cliffs/ledges, and will traverse through the air at a 45 degree angle until it reaches a level surface or the attack is completed.
  • Will go on full cooldown if the player turns away from the target location while casting, but will not send out a Lightning Orb.
