Tempest Shield is a spell that applies a buff that empowers your shield, granting increased block chance and dealing lightning damage to the attacker, chaining to nearby enemies, whenever you block. The skill expires after a duration but is refreshed after a successful block.

Skill Functions and Interactions

Damage on Blocking: This spell will damage the attacker whenever you successfully block any direct attack or spell (assuming you have passives or an item with x% of Block Chance applied to Spells to allow blocking of spells).

Chaining: The damage on block chains from the attacker to the nearest enemy in a range. The number of times the lightning damage chains can be increased by supporting Tempest Shield with Chain SupportChain SupportSupport, Chaining, Projectile
