Elemental Damage Bonus Buff Ally

Increases the damage of weapons and certain abilities. This bonus is multiplicative after damage mods such as Serration, but before Elemental mods such as Hellfire. The element bonus can combine with elements already present on the weapon (eg. using Fireball Frenzy on a Cold b Cold weapon makes it deal Blast b Blast) or increase the elemental component of a secondary element if that is not innate (e.g. using Shock Trooper on a weapon modded with Radiation b Radiation increases the Electricity b Electricity component on the weapon, if Radiation b Radiation is innate, Electricity b Electricity is added following the above rules).

Elemental damage bonuses can be cast on Companions, Specters, Mind Controlled enemies, Shadows, Saryn's Molt, Loki's Decoy, Invasion Allies and Clones created from Blade Storm. Bonuses cannot be applied to allies suffering from a Radiation b Radiation proc.

The buffed equipment will have a corrupted texture effect and emit lighting bolts for the duration of the buff.
