This one's a little more straightforward. It's kind of one of your bread-and-butter single target abilities. You can charge it for varying degrees of efficacy. So, you can either release it really soon to apply stacks quickly of the Electrified status effect in the lightning category, or you can charge it up longer and do more damage.[1]Tradd Thompson

Alpha-2 Mage skill:

Base skill
Held ability: Charge up a bolt of lightning to unleash upon your target, dealing lightning damage and applying 2 stacks of Electrified to the target. This deals additional damage based on how long it was charged. Electrified reduces the target's magical mitigation for each stack applied. When the target reaches 10 stacks, all Electrified stacks are consumed and they become temporarily Shocked. Whenever a Shocked enemy takes damage, they take additional damage and 1 stack of Shocked is consumed. Shocked is initially applied with 20 stacks.[2][1]

Casting a spell of a different element switches this effect to the new element.[3][4]
