Lightning Strike
sorcerer attack 1

Target: one creature

Attack: Charisma vs. Reflex

Hit: 1d8 + Charisma modifier lightning damage, an enemy of your choice other than the target and within 10 squares of the target takes lightning damage equal to your Dexterity modifier. Level 21: 2d8 + Charisma modifier lightning damage

Storm Magic: You can apply your Storm Power bonus either to the damage roll against the target or to the damage taken by the enemy within 10 squares of the target.

Lightning strikes your foe and then ricochets to another enemy.


  • The power originally allowed a creature of your choice other than the target, and was changed to an enemy of your choice. The reasoning was to keep the power in line with the storm magic entry, and to prevent a character from triggering ally's feats and benefits. [U]
