Static Strike is a melee attack that strikes your enemies and builds up static energy on you, dealing damage around you when the energy expires.

Skill functions and interactions

  • Static charge: The initial hit applies a single static charge to the player which, once it has run its course, causes a static discharge. These static charges each obey their own respective timers. Modifiers to duration affect the duration of each static charge.
  • Static discharge: When a charge fades, it discharges dealing AoE melee attack damage, with a similar damage profile to the initial hit; conversion (both from the skill and other sources), and any flat elemental damage gains (such as that from gear, auras, and weapons) all apply to the discharge damage in the same manner. Discharges do not have a travel time and hit all enemies in their range simultaneously.
