    Default About damage

    So im level 50 now and my friend is as well. We are both the same setup Pyro/chloro but my friend does way more damage than me on a regular hit by about 400 or so. Im doing around 700(Fireball) while shes doing about 1100(Fireball). We both have around 630 spell power as well. Now i gather that you take the base damage of the spell and add your spell power to that if im not mistaken, and you get the final outcome of damage. So my question is, why am i not doing as much damage as my friend.

    A percentage of spell power is added to spells as damage. In the case of Fireball 40% of your Spell Power is added ad damage. Then any talents (Such as Burning Bright or Fire Armor) are factored in.

    In this particular case it sounds like you forgot to rank up your Fireball. Visit your trainer!

    400 over 700 is more than half again damage, that's an huge difference.
    I dont see anything that could make for such a change, not even if she were using the 200sp powerstone.

    But then even with those, there won't be that much different so I agreed with
