The Lightning Rods are a powerskill exclusive to the Fatal Falls DLC which causes a lightning strike that can chain between rods and inflicts shock on struck enemies.
The player can place down two rods separately. When the second rod is placed, lightning strikes the first placed rod from above and will chain to the second one.
The lightning can travel through walls and platforms, and even the initial strike can damage enemies that were above the first rod.
Enemies in water will take critical damage from the lighting.
If the second rod has not been placed after 5 seconds, the skill will go on cooldown.

Despite the fact that the lightning rods are placed on the ground, they do not count as deployable traps and therefore do not benefit from any deployable related affixes, mutations, and other abilities, such as Support.
