    Vaal Lightning Strike

    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.

    Skill functions and interactions

    • The pulse rate of the lightning beams produced by Vaal Lightning Strike's orbs can be modified by increases to attack speed such as Faster Attacks Support.

  • 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).
