Lightning Arrow (often referred to as LA) is a ranged attack skill that fires an arrow which deals lightning damage to a target and nearby enemies.

Skill functions and interactions

Damage conversion: Like all converted damage, the lightning portion of Lightning Arrow's damage will be modified by both lightning damage and physical damage increases.

Hits Additional Targets: When an arrow strikes a target, up to 3 randomly chosen enemies within an area around that target will also be struck for the same amount of damage (not just the lightning portion of the damage). The area within which Lightning Arrow can hit additional targets has a base radius of 18 and is affected by Area of Effect modifiers such as increased Area of Effect. However, this damage is not affected by modifiers to Area damage.
