This contraption, made from a coil and a rod, is buzzing with electricity and can shoot it far, zapping anyone who comes into range.

Useful Info

Lightning spires are uncommon defensive structures whose purpose is simple: to shoot bolts of electricity at any enemy who stumbles into their range. They are fairly fragile, but nearly immune to most elemental spells. Outside of Summon Lightning Spire, they are extremely rare, but can be found defending certain vaults (including one rune vault in the Abyss).

Tips & Tricks

  • Electrical Bolt, unlike Lightning Bolt, is both quiet and accurate. It can still doublezap, though.
  • Hostile lightning spires are as strong as electric eels; by the time you find them, most characters can survive smashing through. rElec is still recommended, though, as they usually come in electric-themed vaults.
  • Lightning spires can't see invisible. A friendly lightning spire can hit you if you're invisible and there's a monster in the path.
