Zap is a starting card for The Defect that channels 1 Lightning.png Lightning Orb.

Upgrading Zap reduces its Energy cost from 1 to 0.

As a starting card, Zap can only be obtained mid-run through events such as Match and Keep, The Library, or A Note For Yourself.

Strategy[]

Zap is a cornerstone of The Defect's strategic arsenal; you'll rarely have a reason not to upgrade it, let alone cut it. Zap is the most consistent way to generate the most consistent Orb, and can Evoke an Orb in a pinch.

Upgrading Zap is strongly recommended. Not only does it make Zap easier to fit into a turn, it enables All for One and Scrape to generate Lightning.png Lightning Orbs.
