A very powerful skill, if weather effects are working.
The extra damage is added to each tick of damage, both direct attacks and DoT attacks. This means synergy with DoT effects or attacks that are split in several smaller ones is large, and synergy with DoT effects that hit multiple times per round (
) is huge.
Like all weather effects, it boosts both your team and the opponents' team.
The mechanical damage bonus also effects the damage of the lightning storm itself, so it does 25% more damage than the tooltip suggests
If you want to reduce the damage done to your own team, shields like
I did not test if the extra damage also procs from reactive damage like
. Interesting loops could occur...
Does not seem to be working properly right now. My Wild Jade Hatcling does get the extra mechanical damage to it's attacks, but my other pets do not after switching them. Right now the bonus mechanical damage on every hit seems to only apply to the two pets active when the ability is cast.
works extremely well with
and simular skills.
It's not advisable to use this skill if the opponent has mechanical pets or a lot of pets with DoT abilities or skills that hit multiple times per round.
Keep in mind that Elemental type pets do not receive damage from the lightning strike during Lightning Storm, however, they can still use the lightning to damage any other non-Elemental pet.
This also works great with attacks that hit the whole team like BONESTORM, Arcane Storm, etcetera and works especially great with Peddlefeet's Rapid Fire.
Bugged and will cause double damage against Humanoids. It says it is strong against Beasts.
The aura created by this spell (Lightning Storm) goes pretty well with the
pet, Lightning Storm will buff his
to do more damage and grants 2-3 lightnings per round if you're attacking first and ALL damage can be improved by using
which will make both attacks and lightnings do more damage, I could easily deal 1600 using this strategy. After killing one pet, I could easily kill another one in 2 rounds.
This helped me a lot when dealing with some pet battle masters. Hope you guys enjoy!
= Serious damage to entire team.
+Bonus Mechanical damage on each attack
+25% to Mechanical damage
Tympanic Tantrum deals two attacks to the main pet, and one attack to back line pets. Each of these attacks will get the 25% bonus and the additional Mechanical attack with 25% bonus. If this is done against Beasts, well you get the picture...
Can be combined with
to proc lightning.
