Arcane Dynamo is a Wizard passive skill unlocked at Level 29, which powers up the Wizard's next non-signature spell by using Signature spells.


Name Level Description
Arcane Dynamo

1 When you cast a Signature spell, you gain a Flash of Insight. After 5 Flashes of Insight, your next non-Signature spell deals 60% additional damage.

The following skills are Signature spells:
Magic Missile
Shock Pulse
Spectral Blade

Dare not to invoke the wrath of a Wizard. You are nothing more than a loose coalescence of dust before their ire, easily scattered at a whim.


Signature spells are required to gain Flashes of Light.


Passive skills have had a long and storied history. When Diablo III debuted at the WWI 2008, skill trees included passive skills, much like in Diablo II. In 2010, it was announced that passive skills had been renamed traits and separated out from active skills. At the July 2011 Press Event, Blizzard announced that passive skills were once again in the game, replacing the traits system.


Arcane Dynamo was not seen until it showed up in the Diablo III beta as a level 28 passive. For the Beta Patch 13, it became a level 29 skill, and when passives were reorganized for Beta Patch 14, Arcane Dynamo was moved up to level 55.
