Target one creature afflicted with Static status effect

Saving Throw Reflex partial; Spell Resistance yes


The target for this spell requires the Static status effect to be in effect. Once you cast this spell, the Static status effect is removed and a blast of lightning bursts from the target. The blast deals lightning damage equal to your caster level (maximum 5) plus your Intelligence modifier to the primary target. After it strikes, lightning can arc to a number of secondary targets equal to your caster level (maximum 5). The secondary blasts each strike one target and deal half as much lightning damage as the primary bolt.

Each target can attempt a Reflex saving throw for half damage. The Reflex DC to halve the damage of the secondary bolts is 2 lower than the DC to halve the damage of the primary bolt. You choose secondary targets as you like, but they must all be within 10 feet of the primary target, and no target can be struck more than once. You can choose to affect fewer secondary targets than the maximum.
