    Lightning Bolt and +Lightning Skill Damage

    Lightning bolt converts 100% of the weapon damage to lightning damage. Enhanced damage from gear works with this damage. But how about +lightning skill damage from things such as griffons eye and facets? Does that also work with the lightning damage that comes from the physical damage of the weapon?

    Are you saying that off-weapon and skill ED works with lightning bolt, just like with berserk? I've always assumed it's based on base weapon damage.

    Well, yes... if it didn't, the damage would be beyond terrible. And it IS based on base weapon damage... Like berserk...

    Prepare for semantics: It's not based on base weapon damage (like vengeance), it's based on weapon damage after skill ED is applied, like berserk. Anyhoo...

    +% Lightning Skill Damage only applies to Lightning Bolt's added lightning damage, not its converted lightning damage.

    Like Berserk, final physical damage is converted before being applied to a target (so Critical or Deadly Strike are also applied before conversion). However, Lightning Bolt only applies 3/4 weapon damage (like Multiple Shot and Strafe).
