Tears fire 1-2 sparks of electricity in random directions upon hitting an obstacle or enemy.
Sparks deal half of the tear's damage (Isaac's current damage stat).
Sparks behave like spectral homing lasers and will arc to hit enemies that are close enough, even striking multiple ones in a row.
Tears that hit the floor due to running out of range do not generate arcs.
Only one electric arc happens, and they have a very short range compared with before. However, when an arc strikes an enemy, it will strike another nearby enemy with a new spark, creating a chain of sparks up to 4 more targets.
This item refers to high voltage traveling arcs, which are colloquially known as Jacob's ladders. It creates a small electric arc rising between two metal rods, as the item graphic represents.
The name is a reference to The Book of Genesis from the Old Testament. In Genesis 28:10-19 Jacob rests on his journey and has a dream; in the dream, he sees a ladder that serves as the connection between Heaven and Earth.
This item's new effect closely resembles 120 Volt from Antibirth, which was added to the game with a different effect.
