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, activating the beam effect for four seconds. The stacks each have their own duration; if you already have three stacks, the oldest will be refreshed.
  • Static discharge: Although the beams do not inherently chain, they do possess the Chaining tag and can spread through packs if the user has additional chains from some source such as Chain SupportChain SupportSupport, Chaining, Projectile
