Notes[edit]

  • This skill can be activated while in the air.
  • The aura will only stun enemies within 240 units.
  • This skill does not separately cause the stun that is listed below the Shocking Aura description in the tool-tip. This skill fact provides information about what occurs when struck by foes.
  • Its cooldown is separate to Tempest Defense; the aura granted however does not stack in duration
