Discuss Evan039s Fifth Job Skill, Elemental Blast

Evan Forum Talk about Evan

I'll start:
Apart from having a breathtaking animation, the stats:

Evan's Elemental Blast: A timeline through the ages:
KMST 1.2.035 5th job & Road to Vanishing FIRST DRAFT Level 50: Consumes 1000 MP. Use 4 consecutive magic spells that deal 600% damage 6 times on up to 15 enemies. Cooldown: 150 seconds
KMST 1.2.036 5th job and road to vanishing SECOND DRAFT: Level 50: Consumes 1000 MP. Use 4 consecutive magic spells that deal 1500% damage 6 times on up to 15 enemies with an additional 100% critical rate. Cooldown: 60 seconds
KMS 1.2.259 Road to Vanshing FINAL: Level 20: Consumes 1000 MP. Use 4 consecutive magic spells that deal 900% damage 6 times on up to 15 enemies with an additional 100% critical rate. Cooldown:60 seconds.
KMS 1.2.261 Server issues: Level 20: Consumes 1000 MP. Use 4 consecutive magic spells that deal 1350% damage 6 times on up to 15 enemies with an additional 100% critical rate. Cooldown: 60 seconds.
KMST 1.2.038 City of Dreams FIRST DRAFT: Level 25: Consumes 1000 MP. Use 4 consecutive magic spells that deal 1500% damage 6 times on up to 15 enemies with an additional 100% critical rate. After attacking, your final damage is increased by 5% per different elemental spell hit. Cooldown: 60 seconds.
If you'll notice, it was the strongest it ever was in the second test server RIGHT before it went live.
4 consecutive spells that each do a whopping 1500% damage, six times, on 15 enemies with a cooldown of only a minute, right before it was cruelly nerfed to 900%
... That is, until now.
a mere 2 patches later, after being nerfed hard in the live server, the nerfs have been fully reverted.
With a couple improvements thrown in:
It takes less Core Fusion to max it out, and has an additional 5% final damage per spell hit.

If they don't revert it in the live update for the Arcane River: City of Dreams update hits that is.

Well, personally, i don't really like big AoE skills so i was not thrilled for this skill anyway and it didn't help that the secondary effect of the skill was 100% crit (which i already have anyways), but i must say this extra final damage does look appealing

It's bad?
It's 4 spells that each do 1500% damage 6 times.
That's 24 x 1500%
Even without taking into account damage multipliers, that's 30,000% damage.
Not to mention, it's either an Evan skill or a Mir Skill. (not sure which)

Meaning that "attacking normally" doesn't Mir-ly have to beat Elemental Blast's DPS, it has to beat elemental Blast's DPS PLUS either Mir's Skills or Evan's skills, depending on which one ISN'T framelocked, assuming either of them are locked into the casting delay of the skill.
Considering I believe you can cast Dragon Breath, Circle of Wind, Dark Fog, AND detonate Magic Debris (Magic debris has zero casting delay, and can be used while Evan, Mir, or the both of them are locked in to the frames of other skills. I forget dark fog is there, but I don't believe it gets in the way of casting other things at all, either.) all at once, this shouldn't be a huge issue.
Even if it frame locks ONE of them, you can still cast Elemental Blast alongside Circle of Mana OR Mir's Breath. (if it's a "Mir skill", it might even be possible to set up mir's breath beforehand, then cast Elemental Blast and spam circle of Mana.)

TLDR: you're miscalculating. Elemental blast will almost certainly be capable of being used concurrently with EITHER Circle of Mana or Breath of Wind, depending on which one of them isn't busy casting Elemental blast, if not BOTH, if it turns out neither of them get locked into it.

@juarmo: I'm assuming you haven't seen anyone actually use the skill. You can't use anything except maybe magic debris during the attack, it's both an Evan and Mir skill. The skill itself lasts about 2-3s because the animation is so large.

It's bad. The only redeeming quality is the final dmg buff. You can easily output 36,000% damage in a matter of 4s with thunder dive and wind flash.

@nitsua2789: Really not sure why you're complaining when no other class can do even close to 36,000% damage in 4s consistently. It's pretty fair that Evans get handed a fairly useless 5th job skill for balance.

@risingrain: That's not true, offhand I know Nw is capable of that output and their 5th job skill is actually one of the strongest. Hero's are also able to as a result of their massive final dmg (for clarification I used Evans final damage values in that earlier statement). Xenon can output at a very high level as well and their 5th job skill is probably the strongest burst skill in the game.

36,000% in 4s means you're doing 9,000%/s, which isn't actually very high. DrK's are capable of it, Phantom's are capable of it, a good deal of classes are able to put out 9000%/s.

@xvi3tx: Hopefully we get more details when it hits the normal servers, but the Cd on the ultimate is only 60s so even if its just 10-20s of the buff we could still get decent use out of it.

@nitsua2789: Need some proof on a "good amount" of classes can output it.
Heroes can, Xenons can, NW can with jump attacking (which isn't practical on the new bosses), DrK's can, Phantoms can (because they can steal Cross Surge + Final Cut), and maybe DBs can.
