Skill functions and interactions

Area of Effect: Modifiers to area of effect modify the size of each lightning strikes, but not the area where it can hit, unlike similar skills like Molten Strike. Therefore, having a larger AoE will increase the chance of overlapping hits moreso than other comparable skills.
