Monster Lightning Globe

A Misshapen casting Lightning Globe.

The Lightning Globe skill is the signature move of the Tainted Demons. It can seriously hurt if the player is low on Lightning Resistance.


The Tainted have, along with their powerful melee attack, a ranged lightning attack. This can be particularly devastating when a unique Tainted monster appears with his minions in Hell difficulty.

Being a purely elemental attack, and that too of Lightning, which has a very large damage range, it is a medium ranged ability that takes time to fire.

They typically do not start casting the Lightning Globe until they have been injured.
