Mod of ring doesn't work?

Just need to check something with you experienced guys out there, I'm using a ring that says "8% chance to cast Level 3 Chain Lightning on attack". I tried this one on my Ranger pally, fired 300 shots at various monsters, but no chain lightning came at all.

Any idea if this suffix works only on melee attacks?

Thanks in advance for reading!

The On Attack mods only works on melee attacks and then only if you actually hit a monster/player.

Thanks, RTB, that really cleared me up.

Sigh, I'm disappointed. It would have added very interesting ranged effects. =)

no..ur a lil off..it might work only on melee cahrs..but on attack means whenever he attacks..be the hit landed or not, "upon striking" means u have to actually hit the target

*Sigh*

That was 1.09. Now Blizzard made On Attack mods act the same as On Striking mods.

Ug, that is so bogus.
I used to love grabbing "chain lightning on attack" items and then shift-attacking the air and watching random lightning come out. They gotta ruin all my fun.
