Modifiers

Lightning Coil has the property 'physical damage taken as elemental'. With lightning coil, a portion of physical damage is taken as lightning damage. This takes place before mitigation is applied, therefore armour will not mitigate the lightning portion but lightning resistance will.[1] While wearing Lightning Coil physical damage can apply the Shock status ailment.
