As per the title, does the Wizard's lightning hydra proc the passive to stun mobs?

2 Answers 2


Amongst other abilities, Hydra with the Lightning rune do not cause the Paralysis passive to proc. The abilities reported to be affected by this are:

  • Storm armor's basic damage component
  • Lightning Hydra
  • Dartling

Source, second source.

  • Jeez, well that makes the Lightning Hydra utterly useless... thanks for the links.

  • .. yup. I am currently using Arcane + Flux passive, just trying to see if any of the others are useful. So far, ice, mammoth and now lightning seem a waste of time in comparison to venom!

  • Arcane can shoot through walls... that is at least cool. Flux adds a little value to that as well. However, the damage dealt by venom hydra, especially verse a stationary target is very strong. Jun 27, 2012 at 16:12

I can stun with my Hydra. I think it has changed in some recent patch, though I did not notice it in the patch notes or anywhere.

  • Hmm I will test this tonight.
