Default You need to implement more or better lightning gear.

I find and craft tons of stupid gear with physical, piercing, fire/burn and poison/acid gear. Very easy to gear up a toon using these damage types. Cold, chaos & Vitality are also pretty easy to fine. I've leveled 4 characters to 35 who's primary damage was lightning. The gear is very scarce and hard to come by. To get even remotely decent gear I had to spend 6 hours crafting. And even after this most of my gear was actually % elemental damage and usually between 10 to 15%. Yet I constantly find much higher percentage gear for other damage types. The lightning damage weapons seem to be easy enough to get but the gear just doesn't seem to drop or craft very often. I have put over 500 hours in this game and still can't get a good set of gear for my Lightning Damage Builds. Plus I don't recall ever seeing any gear items with % electrocute gear ever. I really enjoy the game but its killing me that my Lightning Specs are much inferior to my other damage specs.

Frostburn damage also is a bit lacking but I'm sure the devs know this.

Hopefully we'll see some additions in the future

I found the same thing when trying to gear up a lightning stun jack build I did in the past.. was frustrating for sure.

Ironically, I would then always find fire damage, cold damage etc.. and now that I'm building a fire commando, guess what, I haven't found much at all toward decent fire gear. go figure.

That's always how it works in these types of games. You always find gear that's perfect for all builds except the one you're playing. lol

I can't tell you how many awesome epic guns my pure soldier has found.

yea, there's not much for lightning gear, but plenty of elemental gear, that affects the same type, and demo tree is the only one that gives %lightning, and electrocute % damage

We are aware. In fact we are so aware that B20 is adding 24 new epic items and 13 new rare affixes which add new options for (among other things): Lightning, Cold, Poison, Electrocute and Coldburn builds.

Yeah I've cleared SoT also on 3 of my 4 Builds. Again they do the job but if I had gear as good as my other builds I would be much happier.
