Storm Armor Rune

Wizard
I was wondering why people use Shocking Aspect rather than other runes.
Funny how like 90% of players use this rune but have no answer for it. I even Googled and read countless threads. There's no legit reason I can find. This is what I hate about D3. Players just use a rune or a skill based on "YouTube" or some build they find online but have no idea why they use it.

This post has been here for 2 days and not one answer yet.

I was thinking that but is that confirmed anywhere?
I found when using it, the procy lightning zap seems to count as a source to trigger halo of karini. Now maybe i was just getting unlucky before swapping to the rune and not noticing that i was just happening to zap things at a distance when using the rune, maybe not. But thats why i used it, i found it seemed to result in me keeping up karini buff a lot easier when i have mobs packed in tight around me.

Without it, karini falls off and i died. With it, i kept karini up more frequently when standing ontop of my monk. Coincidence? Perhaps

To be fair, i didnt test too much, i found this to be the case in a couple of runs and then jumped to the conclusion that im probably right and thats most likely why others are also using it. Either that or arcane power i assumed, either way, went smoother with it, didn't bother thinking too much about it beyond (this is clearly better). Can't tell you for sure why others are, but thats why i do.

This was what my tests taught me when Karini first launched. SA triggers it waaaaay more consistently than any other rune.

I've tried other runes and Karini seems to be fine.
