Tips

  • Stormtouched’s unique ability to start with any limb allows it to combine into many themes and builds.
  • Stormtouched head is usually not suggested as it requires the player to get hit in order to work. However if a full tank character is desired this may be useful.
  • Stormtouched leg’s thunder stomp rarely hits but a missed Thunder Stomp still counts as an attack for setting up flanking and can allow the player to flank many targets easily.
  • Morthagi Wardrobe enemies notably are always stunned by Thunder Stomp.
  • Storm Touched arms are not the most powerful transformation attack but can allow the player to gain a useful potency scaling ranged attack with transformations they usually could not.
  • Jumpjolt+ and Chain Lightning+ share the same bonus modifier (self.theme_storm_upgrade); therefore, if you select one, the other is active as well.
