Vaal Lightning Strike (often referred to as VLS) is a vaal melee attack with the secondary effect of launching projectiles periodically from the target struck or from the ground if no enemy is hit. These projectiles deal lightning damage based on the player's weapon damage.

Version history

Version Changes
2.1.0
  • It is now a Dexterity Gem
1.1.0d
  • Vaal Skill soul counts were initially balanced for Merciless difficulty, where there are more monsters. We want them to be easier to use in Normal and Cruel difficulty. We have halved the number of souls required for each skill. In Cruel difficulty, skills require 50% more souls to uses. In Merciless difficulty, they require 100% more (which is the same as before the patch).
