I run full lightning so my chain lightning depending on exact spec hits for 3.6 to 5k with the highest ever being a 5.8k crit (very uncommon). The real variation with chain lightning comes in the fact that it is mitigated by armor and specs that take less AOE. If the chain lightning had some sort of armor piecing effect they it could be a lot more consistent without hitting light/medium armor targets too hard.

The other option would be to lessen the overall 50% critical damage bonus to chain lightning but signifcan't upping the base damage. As is chain lightning is only worth it if you crit which is unfortunate since there is nothing in the spec to help it crit.
