Ball of Lightning is a Wizard trait. It creates a ball of lightning that hovers near the Wizard, periodically striking nearby enemies for highly variable damage.

This skill is essentially the Diablo III version of the Diablo II Sorceress' Thunder Storm.

Ball of Lightning Properties[edit]

Ball of Lightning

  • Clvl Req: 31
  • Description: Periodically strike a nearby enemy for lightning damage.
  • Max points: 1
    • Rank One: Strikes for 1-120 lightning damage.
  • Lore: Not yet known.

The highly-variable damage makes this one quite unpredictable. Also keep in mind that spell damage in Diablo III is largely determined by equipment and other bonuses; 120 damage from a spell is a huge number, relatively speaking. Even 60.5, the average, is quite substantial.


This is a Wizard-only trait.
