Arc Lash

From Diablo 4 Wiki

Arc Lash is a Sorcerer skill from the Basic skill tree. Its features are:

Grants Player Exploits Condition
Lightning Dmg Stunned (CC)
Stuns (CC) Critical Strike Chance
- Cooldowns
+ Movement
Basic
Shock

'Grants Player' means this skill creates this condition i.e it could make a target Vulnerable that other skills can take advantage of. 'Exploits Condition' means this skill takes advantage of a condition, not necessarily of its own making. So for example another skill might Stun and this skill could take advantage of that.
