skill gems, Herald of Thunder has two separate effects.

The first effect adds x-y lightning damage to both spells and attacks. Damage dealt by this effect can shock.

The second effect is triggered when a shocked enemy is killed. A Storm will strike enemies and destructible objects within Herald of Thunder's radius for its duration dealing lightning secondary damage. This storm remains centered on the character's location if the character moves. Damage dealt by the storm cannot inflict shock, and is not an area of effect.

The storm will strike an enemy or destructible object every 250ms, but will prioritise targets that have been struck fewer times.

The storm from Herald of Thunder applies to enemies killed by attacks as well as spells, but not if they are killed by minions, traps, mines, or totems.

    , Herald of Thunder is not an aura and does not receive bonuses from aura nodes, items, or support gems. It does reserve mana however, and it therefore benefits from reduced Mana Reserved modifiers.
  • Quality: Herald of Thunder's increased lightning damage quality bonus is global, meaning that it affects the character's lightning damage from all sources, not only Herald of Thunder.
  • Cannot Apply Shock: Herald of Thunder's on-kill effect cannot apply Shock. However, if The Three DragonsThe Three Dragons
