Voltaxic Burst - Path of Exile

Inspired by the Shadow’s Trickster ascendancy class, Path of Exile created the Voltaxic Burst Voltaxic Burst skill gem. Voltaxic Burst Voltaxic Burst grants a buff which counts down to zero, at which point it detonates, sending out a damaging lightning and chaos explosion. Enemies slain by this explosion will also explode dealing lightning and chaos damage based on a portion of their life.

Voltaxic Burst Voltaxic Burst grants a buff that counts down to zero, triggering a burst of lightning damage around you with a portion of that damage converting to chaos damage. Enemies slain by your Voltaxic Bursts will also explode dealing chaos damage around them based on their maximum life.

You can stack up many Voltaxic Bursts on yourself at the same time. Consider using duration modifiers to modify the timing of the explosion so that you can cast the skill from safety then move into a strategic position before it explodes.
