The Lightning Golem's primary spell is a ranged lightning projectile, so it won't get as close as other Golems, making it easier to keep alive. It will occasionally place orbs of lightning near enemies, zapping them repeatedly. It will also use its own temporary aura skill, adding a small amount of extra lightning damage to nearby allies' attacks and spells. While you have a Lightning Golem summoned, it'll grant you increased attack and cast speed.
The Lightning Golem's aura makes it great for characters with other minions as it'll boost your whole army's power when the aura is active, in addition to laying down more reliable damage than other golems (especially to single targets). The Golem also lets a Lightning Elementalist make full use of the Liege of the Primordial skill to increase Lightning damage.Description on the official Path of Exile website 
Summon Lightning Golem is a minion spell, summoning a Golem that grants the player increased attack and cast speed while active. It can use a long range lightning projectile attack, place orbs of lightning that attacks nearby enemies rapidly, and a temporary aura that adds a small amount of lightning damage to attacks and spells.
- Galvanic Bolt - Projectile spell, 100% lightning, supported with spell/projectile supports.
- Orb of Sparks - Stationary spell similar to Orb of Storms, 100% lightning, hits only one enemy per zap and is unable to chain, supported by spell/AoE supports but unaffected by AoE damage.
- Storm Nimbus - Temporary aura that adds lightning damage to attacks and spells, lasts 4 seconds, uses default aura radius.
