Odyn Son properties[edit]

This item has a helpful legendary affix that regularly sends out charges of Chain Lightning. These charges can hit up to three times, but have a short bounce range, and will only chain to enemies that are fairly close to the initial target. Hit priorities:[1]

  • If there is only one target, (such as an Elite) it will take all three charges.
  • If there are two enemies in range, the one being hit when the proc occurs will take no hits, and all 3 will hit the second, non-targeted enemy.
  • If there are three or more enemies in range, the main target will be skipped and the 3 hits will divide amongst the other enemies.

There is no internal cooldown for the proc and it can trigger multiple times in a row. The damage from the Chain Lightning is boosted by Critical hit damage, but it is not buffed by +% lightning skill damage affixes.

The name references "Odin's Son, who was of course Thor, in Norse mythology. Thor is the God of Thunder and wielded a hammer named Mjölnir. See the wikipedia article for more details. Quote from the Edda:

Then he gave the hammer to Thor, and said that Thor might smite as hard as he desired,
whatsoever might be before him, and the hammer would not fail; and if he threw it at
anything, it would never miss, and never fly so far as not to return to his hand; and
if be desired, he might keep it in his sark, it was so small; but indeed it was a flaw
in the hammer that the fore-haft was somewhat short.
