Lightning is an ability of the Recruit class. It has 60 meters range.

"Utilize command of Logos to manipulate electric fields to create a strong electrostatic discharge that can kill or severely injure opponents.

Usage Edit

Because of the fact that it doesn't consume any kind of ammo, and because of the massive damage that it causes, Lightning is a very powerful ability that is useful not only for recruits, but for all tiers.

It may be worth considering to have more than one version of this ability in the ability tray: Lightning Discharge (level I) for energy saving against single targets, or to minimize aggro effect, and a higher level (II - IV) version for standard use with AoE damage.

You will still need some type of other weapon to use as you begin as you only have a limited amount of energy to use for your lightning and when that is low you better have hand to hand or a weapon ready or leave battle.
