When activating the lightning-specific nodes (Power of the Storm; Strong Tide; Energized ) within the Maelstrom skill, the scaling lightning tag does not appear to take effect.
Our methodology on when a skill inherits a scaling tag is when it gains base damage of another type or get’s converted in some way. Power of the Storm and the nodes past this, do not alter the base damage of Maelstrom therefore it would not inherit a lightning tag.
I did notice that there is a lightning icon in the Skills and Specialization panel next to Maelstrom which is a mistake. I will make a note to have it corrected.
Thanks for the report.
Thank you for the informative response. It was the lightning icon for the skill that had me confused.
