Conduit Shrine

The Conduit Shrine is one of the new class of Super Shrines added in Reaper of Souls.

This shrine grants a 30 second buff to a character such that they constantly emit sparks of lightning towards any enemies within range. The sparks are quite damaging; strong enough to one-shot most trash mobs.

Blizzcon 2013 Debut[edit | edit source]

The Conduit Shrine was first seen in the RoS demo at Blizzcon 2013 and was detailed in an report on[1]:

For thirty seconds you run and electrocute anything you move near. And “near” isn’t that near; the range for first strike seemed to be about 30 yards, so every enemy I met died in one or at most two lightning strikes before they were in range of my Crusader. It’s simply awesome to behold, and I laughed for the entire thirty seconds. Unfortunately I wasn’t in an area with a really dense spawn, and I didn’t encounter a boss either, the one time I had this shrine.
How much damage does it do? Not sure. The damage display numbers weren’t turned on in the RoS demo (and the options menu wasn’t accessible) so I couldn’t compare the damage of the Conduit bolts to my own damage. There’s nothing in the shrine tooltip that hints at damage being higher or lower than your weapon damage either. However, I can say that Conduit was a one or occasionally two shot kill on every trash mob, and those enemies were taking me 2-5 hits to kill with my my basic Wrath-generating skill. (Punish or Justice were the options to select from in the demo.)

Shrines in Diablo III[edit | edit source]

Shrines are randomly-located, randomly-spawned objects that characters can click to receive temporary buffs. Shrine effects pass to all players in the area when they are first triggered. All shrine benefits last for 120 seconds, and characters can benefit from multiple different shrines at once. Shrine bonuses and durations do not stack, and hitting a second shrine of the same type will simply reset the time to the full two minute duration.
