Bounding Light is the first skillrune effect available for the Monk skill Fists of Thunder. It is accessible at Clvl 6, and adds a chain lightning effect to the third strike in this combo skill. The lightning squiggles out and jumps between multiple enemies, adding substantial damage to the attack. The lightning can even smash destructibles.

Bounding Light is enabled at level 52 and adds a Chain Lightning effect to the third and final hit of the combo, making this a useful AoE attack that hits multiple enemies for lightning damage.
