From Guild Wars Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

Lightning damage is an elemental damage type that is caused by most Air Magic skills, Channeling Magic skills, wands and staves linked to the Air Magic, Channeling Magic and Spawning Power attributes and any martial weapon with a Shocking upgrade component.

Although lightning damage has no inherent effects, many Air Magic skills have 25% armor penetration.

Generally, Lightning damage skills tend to focus on dealing large damage to single targets, and feature few damage over time effects.
