lumi actually got the least nerf, 40% from elemental reset +30% from morning start=70% final dmg >50% for other mages

I don't understand the Chain lightning change. Didn't it got from 6->7 hits per line in the last patch? Now its 5->6? What.

That's how many mobs it hits. It hits 6 now, instead of only 5.

I lose 7.5% of my DPS... only on bosses and anything else with 50% reduction. This would barely affect me. I would get a huge damage increase on everything else.

Math: 0.55*1.70 = 0.935

0.55 is 50% reduction plus 10% ignore
1.70x on final damage

And Ender is even more of an end because now those stacks of numbers show anywhere! Instead of 125 on orange mushrooms : 3

edit: if for some reason final damage is multiplicative (no idea why it would be), 0.55*1.3*1.4 = 1.001

Someone did the math. It's a 17.5% damage reduction, which is honestly not going to change much.

If anything, I got buffed since now my flame aura hits twice as fast and my mist eruption gets 70m per line cap.
Now I can mob even better since flame aura hits faster and I get a 50% damage increase on normal mobs.[/quote]

Entire patch notes for f/p read to me like a buff for end game players.... paralyze got an indirect buff because they wanted to bring all the other dots in line. 80% increase in dot dmg... now you will 100% put all 3 points in paralyze hyper skills. The main spam spell gets an overall buff.

ME hits for 560m over 450m from before.

Fire aura 1second is better for mobbing the dmg nerf isn't even that important

Ele reset is only thing thats bad but 50% final damage makes it bearable.

Patch notes read to me like low range f/p should find a new class to play and end game players won't be switching ever lol.

Ahh thank you. It didn't help that I read that at 6am without sleep. Never would have caught it.

srurtuphr Level 218 Scania I/L Arch Mage See what games, anime & art srurtuphr is intoSrurtuphr
I chose the "I have a better idea" poll option, so I guess I'll share my idea:

-Keep the reduction of ele resist from 100% to 10% (25% to 10% for bishop)
-Change monsters that are "immune" to elements from 100% resistance to those elements to 75%
-Increase the staff weapon multiplier from 1.2 to 1.3 and the wand weapon multiplier from 1.2 to 1.23. Idk the lumi weapon multiplier, but give it a teeny increase, too.
-Make all mages dependent on the attack speed of their weapons.
-Change insight character trait from 10% ele resist ignore at max to 20% (1% per 5 levels)
-remove the ridiculous final damage% from eleremental reset skills

I think this is more than fair.[/quote]

Please explain why casting magic with a staff should be affected by the weapon's speed? I don't think it makes sense.
It only makes sense for BaMs as they attack with the staff.
