What Flux thought of the skill thanks to Diablowiki:
Just how the game defines “attackers” is not clear; I used this for a while and sometimes saw it hit monsters that I thought were not yet in melee range, while at other times it very slow to trigger even when I was getting swarmed. It’s hard to tell though, since the graphic for the shock it delivers to enemy monsters is very inadequate. It just gives them a little charge near the feet, almost like the Charged Bolt graphic from Diablo I. That’s very easy to miss if there’s a pack of enemies, much less if the Wizard is using lightning spells at the same time.
