    Default Building storm getting nerfed now?

    STORMCALLER
    * Building Storm: Now stacks buffs on the caster, increasing the critical hit chance of Hypothermia-causing spells.

    No mention of the extra damage though. Is that being left alone?
    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.

    It makes it so now multiple people can run the build now instead of just one.

    This is not a nerf this is just changing the way the stacking buff would be applied, thus you can now run 4 mages using the bs/ab rotation without stealing the stacks from one another. the dmg and everything else from BS is still the same.

    could be a nerf, it depend on in which stack of additive or multiplicative buff/debuff is considered now...
    as a debuff it was a multiplicative bonus, as a buff it could become an additive one.

    We were running a lot of archon testing trying to abuse burning purpose + building storm. All that effort has been wasted.

    Did you know?
    You could stack building storm on a friendly player by using a particular way of healing them.
    I did but it won't matter now. I never told anyone because I wasn't about to see it abused.
    This might change that.
