Today I faced someone abusing insane bolt. To defend myself I placed a tower then volcanic shield on top. But when it hit. Only the tower shield was activated and the storm shield was left on. Usually they both would trigger. What happened?

isane bolt hits as a moon spell, not a storm spell... it allows storm to get past defenses but also makes it harder for storm to plus up its damage

According to what I read, Insane Bolt does not trigger Storm blades, traps or shields. It does work with others.

It's a moon spell and not a storm spell so a storm shield would not protect you from it.

Insane bolt does moon school damage so the storm shield will not work. The tower shield is the only one that should have been activated.

Insane bolt is moon damage, so it won't activate a Volcanic Shield. It is not storm damage.

LOL

Insane bolt is moon, which is good for two reason, it gives storm a way past people who just spam storm shields, and it means storm wizards can't

1) Get big storm resist, or
2) Storm shield themselves

therefore reducing the instant effect of killing themselves.

The idea of insane bolt is simple, seriously damage someone, or be killed.

Interestingly enough, storm natural boost does affect it as does universal resist.
