Does it provide its chance of bonus damage only to spells or also meele/range attacks? And stuff like 5% chance of 12-31 fire damage and such things?

It works with everything.

It also has a 50% chance to be spelled volatility by me. Like just then! Volavity. See, 50%.

Actually I think it's a 33% chance to trigger now. The first point spent here is essential as j1mm says.

Subsequent points however...well, they give you 12% extra damage when the skill triggers, which is one time out of three. Earth enchantment, on the other hand, gives you 8% per point constantly. Sure it requires an energy reserve, but on average, that's twice as much benefit, and earth enchantment can help your friends out, too.

So I say learn volatility as early as needed for your build...but don't pump it until you've got earth enchantment well and truly tricked out.

Let me just fire up my Summoner and check!

Edit: Yes, it seems to be a 33% to proc at all levels, or at least the low levels. I'm not sure my claim it gives 12% per extra point was right though...level 2 is 33% chance for +83% fire damage, while level 3 is 33% chance for +92%.
