Lightning Bolt is a Amazon Skill in Diablo II, a Lightning variant of Poison Javelin.


If an Amazon warrior has proven herself worthy, the goddess Zerae can empower her with the ability to strike down enemies by hurling javelins charged with power as if she had snatched lighting from the heavens.

General InformationEdit


This skill deals lightning damage to an enemy from a range, while reducing the base damage by 1/4. This skill also converts all physical damage from the javelin itself into lightning damage. It only applies to throws, and not to melee attacks.

Against a lone target with no enemies nearby this skill can actually end up doing more damage than Lightning Fury, although getting up close and stabbing it with Charged Strike is probably a better idea.
