Lightning is a spell that creates a concentrated bolt of lightning at a targeted monster. It will hit every monster in a straight line until finishing its course on a wall. At higher levels, it is quite damaging, increasing the length of the stream and the damage of each bolt contained within the stream. Choosing to run in the direction with the stream will only worsen the damage dealt, because it gives the bolts more opportunities to damage you.
The caster of this spell seeks to control the discharge of electrical energy by focusing it into a single stream of Lightning. The effects of channeling this powerful force of nature onto an unprotected creature are awesome indeed. With experience, these bolts of lightning may be maintained for a longer period of time while requiring less Mana to be used.
