Surge of Power


From Diablo Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Surge of Power is a rune effect in Electrocute, a Signature Wizard skill.

This rune effect serves as a powerful resource generator, adding 1 point of Arcane Power for every enemy hit by Electrocute. This bonus is by enemy, not by hits, or else it would be nearly infinite Arcane Power, since Electrocute has multiple hit checks per second, per target.
