Static Discharge is a level 3 Conjurations/Air Magic spell which releases charges of electricity at one or more targets adjacent to the caster. It then has a chance based on spellpower to arc to another target adjacent to the victim, losing power as it does so. This can result in it arcing back to the caster, dealing low self-damage.

It does not affect electricity-resistant targets.

History

Prior to 0.13, this spell would deal less damage to levitating or flying targets.
