    I got an enchant that gives +12.5% Galvanic Blast damage... what is this skill??
    It occured on a theurgy ring so that would imply its lightning. Upon searching google, Magic The Gathering uses it as a lightning attack, so is this some kind of lightning spell that hasn't been added to the game yet or something ??

    Maybe just a fancy word for air spells?

    Sounds like a side effect to irritable bowel syndrome ;)

    It doesn't seem to be generic air spells, i didn't really see my damage go up with it.

    Possibly a new or hidden Spellweaving combo?

    Man, did I laugh, but I have a weakness for potty humor, LOL.

    "What's going on up there?!" / "Ugh, about to have a Galvanic Blast..." / "Well, light a candle or something... on second thought, you better not. No, wait...!" / *BOOM*

    Spellweaving hasn't really been expanded for a while. You can see all of the available combos in the Combos tab of your Glyphs window.

    My guess would be this is just a label change for the "+12.5% Lightning damage bonus" effect. Hard to tell for sure with that description.

    oh i forgot about combos let me check that.
    *edit doesn't seem to be a combo.
    Are there combos that aren't displayed in the list ?

    If it was +12.5% to lightning, it should show up in the description of the spell right? when I equip it, the damage should have gone up 12.5% in the description ?

    I was kind of wondering that too. If some have been stealth added but not listed yet. Just a stab in the dark.

    Not sure about the damage updating on the glyph, honestly.

    Galvanic Blast is an MTG card. So if you bring SotA to MTGO, you should do pretty good, as long as you draw/play that card :D

    There must be some sort of proc in or on the way that allows you to electrify your weapon, similar to Ignite for fire and the electrified weapons we had in earlier releases...

    I imagine it is for the Air school and most likely the skill discharge, which is a blast aoe.

    I'm pretty sure its air related since I got it after enchanting a citrine slotted wand. Not sure what it does, but it looks cool in dark tunnels when it makes my wand glow.. :confused:

    Hmm Galvanic blast appears to be some sort of melee electrical spell, I was slapping a bandit up with my wand and it procced doing 10 points of damage instead of 1 :D

    I'd also like to know what it does. It upped my ring from +1 to +4 so it must be a pretty significant enchantment.

    I've tested both melee and bow hits and after about 200 hits and nothing showing up on neither the combat log or the hit itself (no fancy effects), concluded this prolly isn't what the effect does. It also doesn't mention "on hit" like the other on hit enchantments. Maybe it's suppose to be a weapon enchant but, for buggy reasons, can also be applied to jewelry.

    Which seems to indicate it's some kind of damage proc?

    So the jewelry enchant adds damage if u have it on a weapon. 12.5% additional damage to 3-16 though... Thats a +3 upgrade? hmm... I guess if u have it on both a ring and necklace it becomes semi decent.
