Storm-lore is a weak damaging skill with a cooldown of two minutes. The strength of this skill lies in the small AoE stun it causes. It is a short stun of only three seconds and it has a small radius, but unlike other Lore-master stuns (Ents go to War, Test of Will etc) it has no induction. This makes the skill useful in situations in which you are surrounded by a small group of enemies. The stun gives you three seconds in which you receive less or no damage and can either burn them down without being interrupted (e.g. Sticky Gourd) or run away to safety and crowd control them from afar.
Since Storm-lore has no induction, it can also be used to interrupt enemies. This only works if you are close, though, and if the target has no stun immunity. Like all tactical skills, it can be resisted and will not interrupt if this happens.
