Blizz, PLEASE give this to us Lightning Barbs

A lightning rune to Ancient spear. Something like: "Your spear turns into a charged bolt and has a chain lightning effect, hitting up to 5 additional enemies for x% weapon damage as lightning."

One of my favorite classes/ builds in D2 was the Jav-Zon (javelin amazon). With DHs taking bows, barbs would make a perfect javelin hurling class.

Add Titans Javelin to the game, (give it similar stats to odynson), we already have TGods, toss in a 300th spear... How badass does a duel spear wielding god-like barbarian hurling lightning bolts sound???? ZEUS LIGHTNING!
Yeah,i would like to see other barbs,beside fire ones.Lightning is always cool :)
Haha for real man I'm so sick of it. It was bugged, get over SoH. Now killing lightning... That I won't get over. Lightning is sweet, it's just cool as !@#$ zapping and electrocuting stuff. I get how fire synergies with the barb, lightning should just as well. Poison cold and holy? Yea leave those to the other classes they don't make sense. But a THUNDERGOD(see what I did there?)? %^-*. Yes.
I'm still holding my breath for weapon switch with alternate skill procs like in d2 :-(

We need more shard of hate rage threads from nerds on suicide watch.

Inb4 you read the post and realize that OP didn't mention SoH.
Bump for support.

Such a satisfying skill.
Please please PLEASE this is an awesome idea!
Very nice idea, more different elemental runes yay!
While there at it i wouldn't mind some more cold skills.
I agree that it's incredibly silly that there aren't lightning runes on ancient spear.
Please no.

If javazon and wwbarb would be combined into one charcter I would ji-zz my pants so hard it would hurt for a lifetime.

Im not ready to be in heaven yet.
Sounds fun and interesting. +1 from me!
TBH, theres already too many Lightnight Skills the Barb has. Id rather get another skill with Cold.
Blizzo pls
I remember seeing a thread just like this being asked before RoS came out as well, and I figure it's been requested even before that when 2.0 first came out. But I agree, there needs to be a lightning rune for Ancient Spear.
