Alpha-2 updated Chain Lightning ability.[1]

It's pretty similar to Lightning Strike, except it's more of an AoE role that it's filling. So, you won't see it here because you're only attacking one target but if there were multiple targets you would see lightning branch off from the main target that you have to nearby additional targets. So, it's really good at applying its status effect in a more AoE scenario.[2]Keenan Reimer

Alpha-2 Chain Lightning indirect fire arcing around an environmental obstacle.[3]

I’ve asked the combat Striketeam to play with certain abilities having indirect fire. Meaning some of the projectiles could path around collision so long as the max distance traveled is not exceeded.[4]Steven Sharif

Alpha-2 Mage skill:

Base skill
Release a powerful streak of lightning that hits your primary target and then chains outward to up to 5 nearby enemies from that target, dealing (175%🢆) lightning damage to each and applies 20 stacks of Shocked to targets with Volatile.[5][6][7]
Aftershock upgrade
Casting Chain Lightning on a primary target with Staggered causes the attack to trigger twice.[8]
