    Known since Beta/Alpha testing.

    Still here.

    Either working as intended or our dev just hasn't got around to it yet.

    I see..
    Well I simply think it's not fair rouge's not-actually-bugs (the trick with Flashback and the fang) to be "fixed" while Mage's bugs are not.
    And I hope it's a bug: it would be like Sboteur's Carpet Bombing to reset Markman's Strafe CD!

    If you look at IE as being ALL elements you'd see why something affecting fire would also apply to it ;)

    That's actually a way of looking at it that I hadn't. It does indeed say elemental damage in IE and Fire is classified as one of the elemental damage types. LoLz

    I like it lol

    I hadn't heard that pyros dumping 31 points in ele for pvp was QQ worthy. Why am I not suprised?
    Red ball + fulminate + really craptacular dom/pyro spec trying to hard cast transmog and pray your spell lands before some squirrel punching moron eats your controlled opp proc = +1 board warrior keeping mages from being realistically balanced in PVE or PVP. 1.0-1.2's best combo in the game.

    I've tried it and while it seems awesome, it's really not. It's basically 30s of Controlled Opportunity, pre-nerf, but you don't get to cast Fulm and CB only once really. Then you're stuck with Fireballs, even though they hit hard, it's just not worth it.

    Well, as a p6 mage I can say that it is in fact awesome and the only pyro spec I would touch. The 10% mitigation from tier 2 ele isn't something to overlook either, nor the 2 on demand absorbs + 1 proc abs. Also, ignite.

    Ignite is ******ed with the right spec, especially since it's mobile and spamable. Still, pyro needs overload like fat kids need insulin.

    Yeah I know, it's just that it's a cost/reward thing for me. That many points dumped into a pet class for what amounts to +10% resist and crit chance, vs half the investment for +15% damage, increased crit, a better shield, a buff stripper, and detaunt...hard to justify the point expenditure for me is all.

    Well yes this would be a bug. But as most people tend not to report things that are beneficial for them.

    IE Living Shells mana "gain" on hit not reduction. Will still seems to not work right.

    Bugs are bugs and if the class sucks without that bug then something needs to be balanced, not abused. d

    the PTS exists for a reason people. Go on, give your feedback, and help make RIFT a better game.
    All the world will be your enemy, Prince of a Thousand enemies. And when they catch you, they will kill you. But first they must catch you; digger, listener, runner, Prince with the swift warning. Be cunning, and full of tricks, and your people will never be destroyed.

    But is it a bug? All elements should classify it as a water, air, fire, earth, death and life spell and thus gain any bonuses other spells give to such spells.
