- All three hits are calculated individually. As such, it is possible (and fairly common) that only one or two hits critically hit.
- Chain Lightning has a fairly high chance of triggering (elemental spec) due to hitting multiple targets.
- Be careful when using this spell if more mobs are nearby that aren't meant to be aggroed. While Chain Lightning may be more tempting to use for its lower cast time and higher damage output, it can easily cause adds.
