Shocking Burst is an Embermage skill in Torchlight II. It belongst to the Strorm Skill tree and is available starting at level 7.

Description Edit

"You unleash channeled bursts of crackling energy, shocking and stunning all foes up to 8 meters away in 75 degree angle. The energy burst continues and drains mana while the mouse button is held down."

The skill has a longer range then the animation might suggest. While this makes judging what is and what isn't in range somewhat difficult, the skill is relatively easy to aim due to it having a wide attack arch. Unlike the similar Arc Beam skill, Shocking Burst doesn't require the character to use a wand.

Enemies killed by this spell explode upon death.
