Description
Static Orb0
    Casts an orb in a target direction that deals lightning damage and pulls enemies that it hits towards it as it travels. At the target location it explodes, dealing lightning damage to enemies surrounding it and also striking up to 5 enemies further out. The further it travels the higher the damage and area of effect of the explosion, up to 100%.
    Shocking Conduit5
    • Shock Chance +30% per point
    Static Orb hits has a chance to shock enemies.
    Manacharged5
    • Damage Per 20 Max Mana +1% per point
    • Maximum Mana -> Mana Cost +4% per point
    Static Orb deals more damage (multiplicative with other modifiers) per 20 maximum mana, but Static Orb costs more mana equal to a portion of your maximum mana.
    Static Ground1
    • Charged Ground On Explosion
    • Remaining Charged Ground Duration -50%
    The explosion now leaves behind Charged Ground dealing lightning damage over time in an area. Creating another Charged Ground halves the remaining duration of all existing ones.
    Electrocuting Cascade5
    • Damage Per 10% Crit Multiplier +3% per point
    Charged Ground deals more damage (multiplicative with other modifiers) per additonal critical strike multiplier.
    Charged Allies5
    • Shock Chance Inside Area +20% per point
    • Shock Effect Inside Area +20% per point
    You and allies have additonal shock chance and increased shock effectiveness while inside Charged Ground's area.
    Insidious Focus1
    • Mana Cost -6
    • No Pull
    Static Orb costs less mana, but it no longer pulls enemies.
    Ball Lightning1
    • Mana Cost -22
    • Chance To Not Explode 90%
    Static Orb costs significantly less mana, but it now has a chance to not explode.
    Recurring Orb1
    • Returns To You
    • Mana Cost +8
    If Static Orb does not explode it returns to you and deals damage on the way back, but it costs more mana. This node has no effect if you have Orbital Fulmination.
    Biting Force1
    • Lightning -> Cold Damage
    • Static Orb Freeze Rate 40
    • Explosion Freeze Rate 80
    • Shock -> Frostbite Chance
    Static Orb's base lightning damage is converted to cold and it gains a base freeze rate, but it no longer pulls enemies. Consequently this damage scales with increases to cold damage, but not increases to lightning damage. Shock chance from all sources is converted to Frostbite and effects related to shock now depend on Frostbite instead.

    Static Armor4
    • Lightning Aegis Duration (seconds) 2 per point
