    So I regularly use WW and a hit area effect to get tons of damage during spawns, but i have the chance to also imbue Hit Lightning/spell as well onto my WW wep...my question is, does the Hit Lightning have a chance to go off on every monster hit with WW or just the first monster? Thanks

    Lightning/Fireball/Magic Arrow/Velocity only goes to first monster. But you could get an hit area effect on your weapon.

    You would be better to use another hit effect of some leech.

    if you do a hit-spell only Harm or Lightening would work well for Whirlwind, delayed hit-spells can't be casted multiple times very quickly or the damage is only done with the last hit-spell to go off.


    The same goes for weapon procs... possible bug...

    does that mean hit harm or lightning has the potential to hit more than 1 target during a WW? I tried to test this but couldnt keep up with all the little red numbers at a champ spawn...but i couldve sworn i saw lighting hit the last target of a WW chain too. anyone wanna give it a whirl? pun intended :)

    just make a weapon with 50% lightning, no hit area. Test that weapon, so you'll know which numbers are which.
