Notes:

  • When obtaining multiple items with the Chain Lightning ability, only the one that has been continuously the longest in the inventory works.
  • The lightning bounces in 0.25-second intervals, so hitting 4 targets takes 0.75 seconds.
    • All bounces together can deal up to 640 damage (before reductions).
    • Against a lone target, Chain Lightning an average of 48 magical damage to every attack.
  • Chain Lightning can proc while a previous Chain Lightning is still bouncing.
    • Can never hit the same unit more than once per proc.
    • Attacks which proc Chain Lightning cannot miss.
    • Can proc on invisible units or units in Fog of War, but it does not bounce toward those units.
    • Does not proc if the attacker is dead. However, it can proc if the target is dead.
    • Chain Lightning uses pseudo-random distribution.
  • The hidden modifier is a hidden buff required for the lightning to bounce.
  • Chain Lightning uses a custom cooldown system. It is neither displayed on the item icon when procced, nor is affected by cooldown manipulation.
