Overview[]

Electrical Blast endows you with ranged electrical attack powers. Electrical powers can drain foes' endurance and can often temporarily halt their endurance recovery. This can be quite effective against higher level foes and bosses. Some Electrical Blast powers can even sometimes transfer this endurance back to you. It is a Blaster, Corruptor, and Sentinel primary power set and Defender secondary power set.

This powerset was added to the Corruptor options in Issue 12.


Power Tables[]

The Electrical Blast powerset is available as a primary set for Blasters, Corruptors and Sentinels, and as a secondary set for Defenders. The following table shows which powers are available and at what level:
