Chain lighting or Lighting bolt
Return to board index
I've been reading these EJ forums and they say as enhancement that I should be using lighting bolt with maelstrom weapon- but why is that if chain lighting does more base damage as well as damage to other targets?

Situationally good, like when fighting gormok, but most of the time, it's not worth blowing the extra mana unless you have to kill the add.
1. CL has a CD
2. IF yr going with the top dps enhanc spec CL will cost to much mana
3. IF yr using the totem (200haste etc etc) only procs of LB
4.CL just cost to much mana:D
5. LB scales much better with Spell Power, as it's a slower cast. Thus, in the end, the damage will be greater.
"The end" being something like 1910SP and higher.
tl;dr use Lightning Bolt.
Yes, scaling is the key thing here. LB will benefit much more from any SP you have. Just ignore tooltips, they are just wrong and will not tell you anything about the real damage a spell does.
