Piercing Orb

Piercing Orb is a rune effect in Shock Pulse, a Signature Wizard skill.

This rune effect entirely changes the skill. Instead of a ground-crawling charge, this effect fires a large orb that floats forwards all the way to the edge of the screen, zapping enemies it encounters for 105% weapon damage. The ball's movement is somewhat erratic, and it zigs and zags from side to side.
