    Default How to lower burst without nerfing dps

    Just cut burst dmg 1/2 or 1/3 and make that dmg work as a cleansable dot. Cinder burst hits you 2k and leaves 1k dot over 9 sec for example...

    I have seen this done many times in different games nerfing burst but not overall dps.

    DPS = Damage per second.

    DPS in this case actually being DPCT (Damage per Cast Time).

    As long as a mob doesn't die while still being ticked by a DoT, DPCT will be equal to average DPS.

    The only thing that is capable of killing healers right now is burst coupled with silences.

    The only burst that is out of control is pyros, where they can effectively 1 shot someone.

    1 shot someone is still possible and playable in game, but before that, the pyros need to setup for the spell, like debuff the target first, and then cast cinder burst, then you can 1 shot the target, otherwise just do half of the damage. Cleric can clean the debuff when they pay attention.

    Adding an after DoT & reducing initial dmge is the number 1 way to reduce burst without affecting overall DPS.
