Caster's LB is so fast, that wall bombing is pretty much unnecessary. It's too hard to target to make it worth while.

What? No, you mistake Wall Lighting.

Wall Lightning gives more accuracy to Lightning bomb, because Thunder bolts cannot spawn on Walls, so they spawn beside it, reducing the area of effect and increasing the probablilty of being hit by it, thereby increasing damage.

>_> But RB & Spellbook is almost always better. Unless you're up against lots of paper characters Razz

Lighting Bolt Placements are random.

(If you want to be particular, Lighting Bolts are actually units [Made from Footmen] so you can't put them onto Unpathable (Buildings), so they spawn beside them because of pathing)

well basically, lighting spawns randomly around the circum. lighting cant go on debris walls or w/e, so they hit things next to it. so it will hit people more frequently

No >_>, it just spawns randomly. It just has a higher probablity to go on the edges because it... well don't want to bore everyone with maths....

You aren't boring me at all. I've always wondered how Caster's lightning bolt works because it is so random that I don't know if I should just start aiming at people with the edges of the AoE or actually fly over groups.

Please, enlighten me with the maths on how it has a higher probably for the edges.

Because I don't have the exact numbers, I'll just summerize that the probablity of LB hitting at any point within the area is EQUAL.

It is just that the Area of the middle compared to the area on the edges is just so significantly less, so it seems to have a lesser chance of hitting in the middle.

Okay so let me get this straight, people walking near a building. You lighting above the building and have more chance of hitting around the building which will in turn hit the people?

Yes because you're reducing the total area.... which is increasing the probablilty of getting a hit.
