The player charges the spear with Lightning. After roughly 2 seconds, they will thrust the spear skyward, calling down a bolt of lightning on the targeted foe; this bolt deals 200% of the weapon's Attack Rating as Lightning damage. The spear will then be buffed with 80 Lightning damage for 35 seconds.
Due to the long windup of this skill, it is best used to begin a fight with the skill rather than trying to cast it in the midst of battle. Against an unaware enemy, they will take tremendous damage from the bolt, weakening them to be more easily cleaned up by the spear's attacks, moreso with the inclusion of the buff. After striking a foe with the bolt, the buff can be used to more easily defeat subsequent enemies when fighting a group.
Unless the enemy player is distracted or otherwise unaware, hitting them with the bolt can be extremely unreliable. However, it is still a good way to begin an engagement as the buff will augment the spear's attack power and make it more effective in combat.
- Equipping a Lingering Dragoncrest Ring will not increase the duration of the buff.
