We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Lightning Spells (Diablo II)

The Sorceress' Lightning Spells is the counterpart to her other two trees, Fire Spells and Cold Spells. Like other skills of the lightning skill genre, while having a very, very high damage range gap (maximum damage minus minimum damage), this Skill Tree makes up for it in a potentially enormous maximum damage, the highest of any skill in the entire game if your character is geared properly and has skill points invested correctly.

The Sorceress' lightning-based skills also are heavily dependent on Faster Cast Rate, a principle that basically boils down to "how fast a skill can be cast/used in a short period of time". So, even a Sorceress with a low-damage Charged Bolt spell could potentially do more damage than a Sorceress with a higher damage spell over time.

Personal Opinion: It is a good idea to invest in Faster Cast Rate gear if you cannot afford high-end gear with +x to all skills or +x to Sorceress skill levels. While you might not have the strongest attack, the amount of damage you deal over time could potentially be as high as someone with better gear but a slower Faster Cast Rate. Faster Cast Rate is pivotal to a lightning skill-based Sorceress.
