What if the bw is nerfed which one am I best off bossing and mobbing with[/quote]
Assuming we get the same nerf as KMS in roughly 6 months, we'll lose a line on Orbital Flame and a reduction in the range/distance blazing extinction will hit. While they're significant I still like BW > F/P for several reasons lol.
1. A total of 3 buffs for the entire class, which means that's one less thing to do in boss runs.
2. Really good utility skills. Fire Blink on bosses like Cvell and Empress where there's like 1-2 safe spots from full map attacks is amazing. We have a self revive too which is pretty cool =P
3. Playstyle. I just like BW. My previous main jumped between all three explorer mages (80% of the time I was an attacking bishop =P) and I just found f/p to be boring for the most part. It was good, and stupidly easy to cap MH + ME spam as well as the level 150 and 170 hypers. Being kinda held into the pattern of keeping EVERY DoT stack up was just a nuisance to me lol
EDIT: Saw a DPS chart for KMS that's from about a month ago last night. F/P places 3 spots on that chart (3, 7, and 11th). 2nd place is assuming you're doing ME + FH spam with max DoT stacks, 7th is tied with I/L doing just FH with Paralyze and 11th was just pure paralyze spam. BW was 4th using Orbital Flame + Extinction + DoT from ignition. I personally would go with the class that has non variable DPS
If you can handle the slightly annoying micromanagment of keeping your DoT stacks up, F/P is great for bossing. Also pretty good for mobbing, but idk how it does in comparison to the other classes. It'll obviously lose to Lumi, but iunno about the others.
@0o0Abbadon0o0 i think BW gets an additional number of hits for Orbital Flame in hyper skill ? So you will get 3 instead of 4 after the nerf, but 3 is already better than some classes in term of speed. So it's not like 2 :v and i somehow believe blazing extinction would help in term of dps

Pretty much, we'll go from 4 to 3 lines on Orbital whiche sucks but its but some serious speed on it so that's fine. And Extinction does add DPS, what they'll nerf on that is how many pixels it can shoot distance wise which just means the boss/mobs have to be closer but that's fine for the most part besides the fact that we can't solo KD4 anymore after that =P
