Strike a single target with a bolt of lightning, dealing decent damage, piercing 1 defense, and shocking the enemy for 4 turns.

Overview

Lightning Spear is one of 10 unique skills that can be learned from Frogidi's Fortunes.
Lightning Spear has 18 alternative colors which change the hue of the electricity and the lightning trail afterwards.

The timing for the Action Command is about the moment the camera begins to pan at the enemies.
Succeeding the Action Command performs a 'Critical!' hit, increasing the amount of damage POW.pngDamage dealt by 1.

Usage

Lightning Spear deals a low amount of POW.pngDamage to one enemy in addition to having DEF.png1 Defense piercing as well as inflicting Shock.pngShock for 4 turns (Each Shock.pngShock deals 1 POW.pngDamage per turn).

Compared to the other SP.png1 SP cost Frogidi's Fortune skills: Bomb Toss and Fire ClawLightning Spear deals the highest amount of POW.pngDamage to one enemy, contrasting the spread out POW.pngDamage from both the other two skills.

Lightning Spear is rather unique at its SP.png1 SP cost, with no other skill being directly comparable. Outside of SP.png1 SP cost skills, Lightning Spear is comparable to Basic Archery, which they both deal the same amount of POW.pngDamage and DEF.pngDefense piercing, except that Lightning Spear adds on the Shock.pngShock status for 4 turn, which deals a total of POW.png4 Damage more.

Due to the nature of the Shock.pngShock status, Lightning Spear is more useful in drawn out fights like Corruption.pngCorruption 2 or 3 enemies and bosses.

Against Corruption.pngCorruption 1 & 2 enemies, the enemy will all have at least DEF.png1 Defense, which Lightning Spear pierces through.

Against Corruption.pngCorruption 3 enemies, the enemy will all have at least DEF.png3 Defense, with many enemies having at least DEF.png5 Defense total during and after Frogville Road, meaning Lightning Spear has to land a 'Critical!' to deal POW.pngDamage with a slight POW.png Damage increase.

Overall, Lightning Spear is useful as a low-cost, stronger Basic Archery to deal additional POW.pngDamage during longer fights.

Notes

  • The Shock.pngShock status will not be inflicted if no POW.pngDamage was dealt.
  • Golems and Bedrock enemies are immune to the Shock.pngShock status.
  • Shock.pngShock does not stack if already inflicted, nor is the duration reset.

Trivia

  • Mint Lightning Spear can be used by Corruption.pngCorruption 3 Druids.
  • Lightning Spear's past name is "Weak Voltage".
