    Default Suggestion to help sc/ele (change to BS)

    well im sure every mage this patch is pissed even if just little, that our one good pve dps spec was kinda **** on

    well im here to voice a suggestion Ive been thinking about for a while now

    and that's a change to Building Storm

    my Suggestion is as follows

    change Building storm into a buff, that lasts 5 secs and increases the critical damage bonus of all air and water spells by 50%, with a 2 minute cooldown

    when speced into improved building storm it would do the following, increases the duration of building storm by 5 secs per point, and also increases your spell critical strike chance with air and water spells by 10% while building storm is active

    so mage community what do you think?

    personally i think this would fix our dps and put us where we should be.

    constructive criticism welcome.

    That might actually be worse than the current Building Storm, and certainly wouldn't help the overall issue.

    Worse? HAHA

    the current building storm only applies to hypothermia causing spells, this would be all air/water spells and it would be a SIGnificant dps increase and it could help us to be competitive.

    meaning your main spamming spells would actually get some use out of it ! like it should be.

    tell me how this would be worse, please.

    You get ~ 5 ABs every 2 minutes @ 100% crit with 100% bonus damage, vs. getting ~6-7 spells that don't hit as hard with 50% bonus damage IF they crit.

    Yours is significantly worse.

    I agree, making it a cooldown on spells that hit for less and involving RNG... I don't think i want that.

    I'd like to be able to activate charge dump spells, BS, SF, IC, EV, etc.. during cast..

    I feel so.... "clunky" turning **** on and off all the time.

    You can already disable them midcast.

    Just let me start casting Lightning Strike, hit Static Flux, then when the LS goes off it goes off with +20% dmg.

    Be a step in the right direction.

    Would at least give more of the "feel" of having a 1s GCD like rogues. Since we'd get more actions in per second.

    +20% crit
    +50% crit dmg
    15 secs
    2 min CD
    applies to air/water spells
    not just crappy hypothermia spells..
    this would be win. very little RNG

    50% crit is high enough

    Not really on topic that. Also who cares about KBs? Damage done and objectives capped are both much more valid.

    On subject, the point is that the present BS gives us a huge crit once every 20 seconds. If is completely useless for on demand burst and the like though. A better solution would be perhaps to just buff CB and TB's spellpower coefficients. Done.

    Default bs is well b.s

    well on that topic how about giving us a buff wortth using in the first place, the things you have to do in order to even use building storm effectively pretty much limits your character to an aoe specialist that depends on nobody paying attention to them in order to be effective, thats why i prefer the kite and smite build over the aoe typical 32 34 build or if your fancy 31 32 3, once people learn your build they focus you and without a pocket healer your really useless 1v1 nearly every other mage class has enough utility skills to wipe the floor with a stormcaller even our newly nurfed pyro can provide enough stuns to disrupt a stormcallers effectiveness, as for pve? why does everyone think the stormcaller was the only decent pve dps a 45 warlock 16 necro offers far more utility in groups and devouring shadows ad a medicore gear level will hit for 700s just sayin mix it up and try new things rather than being disapointed in trion for tryin to balance the game, which even i think they are sucking at.
