    What's it's cast time?

    Assuming it's 1.5 or less, it has to hit pretty damn hard single target to not only make LB->TB->TB->TB better than CB->CB->CB->TB, but also to make up for the loss of IE & Tempest.

    AE it's got to be pretty impressive to do more damage than a single Lightning Field on a fully electrified group.

    With 51 SC I was critting for 4.3k with LB in full relic gear (1605 unbuffed SP)

    Considering its 2 sec cast and the fact that it shears all your elec... it's good, we'll see if it can be put into a real rotation.

    It *WILL* have to have some sort of PvP only dmg change however, this has 1 shot potential

    i was using 51sc
    i had 3 stacks up, ice shear up, then cast lightning burst. damage on it is good, but here's the catch... you have to rebuild your stacks. i can keep up the ice shear buff before i strip it with LB, and it helps your TB's dps while you restack. when i compared the 3 TBs and one LB and checked the DPCT against a strait up CB spam, the TB/LS rotation came out to be 8 dps more. this was figured using a 50% chance to crit. so is it better? if you're stationary, sure, take the extra dps. is it life changing and worth going heavy into SC? nah.

    With my stats only 2sp off my live character, 1239sp, 800 crit, with 3 electrified, static flux up, and ice shear up, I was hitting for 3500, and critting for 4800. Pretty nice.

    I just did a 44/22 sc/lock for the 4% damage and 5% crit/opportunity and increased charge, I'm not sure what else you would use to augment 44sc but 51 pt SC doesn't seem to overcome the warlock augmentation in straight dps parses. But I could be wrong but I digress, fun stuff. I hope someone can come up with a good rotation and spec soon to maximize the damage.

    With 1600 unbuffed SP I was hitting LB for 3k non crit

    I wasn't using SF but something tells me SF isn't going to be 500 more non crit dmg with 375 less SP
