Frostfire Bolt "Slightly Buff"

Postby Sofiee » Sat Aug 12, 2017 9:15 pm

Hey.
After i saw that (Frostfire bolt) got a "slighty buff" on the class changelog so i thought "yes finally a buff for mages", i went on and played for 1 day and i didn't notice a difference on my dmg with (Frostfire bolt) so i thought i would take a look through my ss folder cause i knew i had been testing (Frostfire bolt) before when (Blizzard) got nerfed with (Ice Lance).

this is that SS: Image

So after that i thought i would go to the same area to test the current (Frostfire bolt) after the "Slightly buff" that was made to find out the how much it was buffed with in %.

Here is that SS: Image

I did some calculations, my base dmg of the spell is for my character is (3810839) and on the first SS you can clearly see that my base dmg at that time was (3808502) which means, if you take (3808502 x 0.0006 = 2285) and if you take that and go (3808502 + 2285 = 3810787) Which is the current base dmg after the "slighty buff" and that means that the spell (Frostfire bolt) was buffed by (0.06%).

what i wanna know is why even buff the spell by 0.06% i don't get the point of that why not let it be like it was before cause 2285 in dmg is not gonna change anything, it just makes no sense to me.

Well technically It's still a small buff then just saying, and it was more to buff arcane aspect aswell since that was pretty low damage wise and that now hits a reasonable amount with 4 charges of arcane blast then arcane barrage after I am liking the change.

as a mage you do not use (arcane blast) espacially not to get 4 charges cause if you do that, you'll miss so much more dmg in the process. but barrage and missiles seems good.

Greetings Sofiee,

Please do not bump old threads, we are aware of this "slight buffing" issue and it will be reviewed later, along with many other class spells, talents and abilities. Thank you for your report nonetheless.
