    Holy shock and missed attack

    Hi, I have a little question.
    I know that for example freezing arrow will do the cold damage even if the arrow misses, is it the same with holy shock aura? This is in melee now. So If I miss the attack, will the lightning damage from holy shock still apply on the enemy? How about bosses?
    Edit: I assume the same answer is for enchant?^^
    Many thanks for any input:smiley:

    Well I think you have to hit in order for the lightning damage to transfer. You only hear the zooming noise when you land a blow right?

    no it doesn't. Freezing arrow has an explosion part that always hit, on top of that freezing arrow has added elemental damage that only does damage when the ar-check is positive.
    Holy shock simply adds damage to the mele attack, like that added elemental damage from freezing arrow that was last mentioned. If you really want, you could see the pulse damage as some sort of explosion and so the skill are analogue.

    So the pulse is always hit just like the explosion part of freezing arrow while the effect added damage to the attack has to pass an ar-check in order to do damage just like with freezing arrow.
