Lightning Strike is the first nuke ability Spellweavers get. It is classified as the most unrelieble nuke due to its unique area of effect. In other AoE skills, targets must get out of the whole area in order to avoid the total damage. However, with Lightning Strike, targets only need to move out of the center a minimal distance in order to avoid major damage. For that reason, players mostly use Lightning Strike only after a freezing or slowing skill like Ice Missile, Frost Wind, or Frost Nova.
