The changes that occured with Lightning Walk (sura skill) with the balance patch are:
  • lowered activation chance (the bonus % chance based on job level helps a bit)
  • does not work with AoE ranged/magic anymore
  • "Lightning Walk does not work on all magic skills"
  • lowered duration time (trivial)
Now, it does not seem to work with ANY single-target magic/ranged skill at all.
I have conducted several tests with a variety of ranged/magic warlock/sorc/ranger/sura/RG/RK skills with Level 5 LW at job lvl 50 (90% activation chance w/ the bonus)
It never activated on any skill at all (examples: gate of hell, arrow storm, hundred spears, vanishing point...etc)
I did not have the chance to test every single single-target magic/ranged skills though

On the good side, it does work with normal ranged attack (the ctrl-click bow attack from rangers) and the proc rate is pretty consistent with the formula

My guess that the current LW is one of the following:
  • The descriptions are wrong (ie. not-working-with-all-skills is intended)
  • It is bugged
  • It works with some single-target magic/ranged skills that I have never tested (in this case a list of skills that LW works with would be nice)
IF it is not working with skills anymore (or only works on a few/some skills) , no problem, just change the descriptions maybe.

IF it is bugged, a fix would be great (only builds with Knuckle Arrow (+CC5/RD5/Gt-convert5/RD10/PA1) will only get to have lvl3-5 Lightning Walk anyways).

Lightning Walk - Post-Balance Patch Formula/Info
From irowiki forums googledocs (by zerozaku/clogon/et.al):

Lightning Walk

Variable Cast Time: (2.5 - 0.5 * Skill Level) seconds
Skill re-use Delay: 5 seconds
Global Skill Delay: 1 second
Activation Chance: [(Job Level / 2) + (40 + 5 * Skill Level)] %
Duration: (4 + 1 * Skill Level) seconds
Lightning Walk does not work on all magic skills

In-game description:

When targeted with a ranged or magical attack (single target), there is a chance that you will immediately jump to the attacker. This skill drains your SP regularly while active and consumes HP to cast. Cancels when the skill is activated.

Additional details from irowiki:

Level 1 2 3 4 5
HP Consumed (%) 5 4 3 2 1
SP drained (per second) 3 3 2 2 1
Activation Chance (%) 45 50 55 60 65
Duration (seconds) 5 6 7 8 9
Notes:Bonus activation chance(%): (Job Level / 2).

As far as I know, it no longer activates on magic skills but it should still work on ranged skills. Since Lightning Walk does not work on ranged skills right now, it's a bug. This bug was fixed on kRO which will most likely arrive on iRO with the skill update package #1 some time this year.

Fixed an error with Sura's Lightning Walk where it would not activate when attacked by Long-ranged physical skill attacks.
