  • The damage from this skill ignores all stats and modifiers from the ranger.
  • When the Nature's Vengeance trait is used, this skill provides Fury to 10 players from the trait despite the fact its tooltip doesn't reflect this. The effects of Call Lightning are still limited by its 5 enemy target cap.
