Voltaxic Burst is a spell skill gem which, after casting, waits for a short duration before releasing a burst of lightning and chaos spell damage in an area around you, exploding enemies killed by it.

Skill functions and interactions

Area of Effect: Increased AoE will increase both the area of the burst and the area of the secondary explosions.

Duration: Increases and reductions to duration will affect the time between the cast and the burst. Reducing the duration will allow you to deal damage sooner, while increasing the duration might allow you to make better use of 1% more Damage with Hits and Ailments for each Cast of this Spell currently waiting.
