Lightning is Stratos' level 1 spell.
"A painful blast of electricity. Shocking, positively shocking." - The Manual, The Book of Stratos
When cast upon something, wizard summons a lightning which instantaneously strikes it's target inflicting shock damage.
Unlike all other BA spells, Lightning doesn't follow it's target. If cast upon moving target it will predict its movement and strike it, but any terrain obstacles found between the caster and it's target will be hit instead. This also applies for creature and structure obstacles. However the advantage of the Lightning is its instant hit, unlike other BA spells which all have to reach its target. It's also the only BA spell which doesn't have splash damage, but makes up for this with greater damage and much faster cast.

Lightning deals the highest damage among it's Basic Attack Spell counterparts. It also boasts half of their cooldown time, and costs 100 mana less to cast. Lightning will instantly travel to it's target, and has a small hitbox, meaning it is very accurate, and will almost always hit its target, unlike the other Basic Attack Spells. However, it lacks in Splash Damage, which all other Basic Attack Spells have.
