    Default Class balance - Stormalist/Stormbringer soon nerfed?

    I expect that the ST DPS hybrids from Stormcaller will be soon nerfed. Before Trion hits hard mages, I am opening this discussion so players can express their point of views for a smooth transition to restore class balances.

    Playing only with my mage, obviously, I am partial.

    First few assumptions:

    Before the new SC:
    • DPS both AoE and ST on mages were simply not good enough
    • HPS were not good enough either

    After the new SC
    • Stormalist generates too high DPS compare to the simplicity of the rotation
    • Stormbringer: I donít play this spec so I donít know.
    • Chloromancer: 10 points in SC put back mage as healer back in the game: please DONíT NERF THAT
    • AoE DPS with 61SC is decent AoE spec with doesnít need to be nerfed

    Pyromancer 2.8
    • Same ST DPS as Stormalist, the rotation is complex and difficult. It needs to be simplified.

    Conclusion:
    • Healing is fine, donít nerf it.
    • AoE DPS is fine, donít nerf it.
    • ST DPS from SC should be nerfed
    • Pyro 2.8 is too complicated, (e.g. IC needs a ICD).

    Overall, there is still no enjoyable ST DPS spec for mages. Chloro and AoE DPS are fine and enjoyable.

    a) This isn't a guide, thus the thread doesn't belong here and deserves to be closed/moved.

    b) Your points itself are mostly wrong. If you research the board you'll find out why.

    c) There's a Pyromentalist spec suggested by heartbeat, you should check it out.

    Umm what? With the new changes to Pyro and the nerfs to SC hybrids, Pyro is quite ahead of SC/Ele.

    Also maybe I'm wrong about this since I haven't used it in a raid environment, but 2.8 pyro seems way easier then it used to be and has competitive DPS now. It seems to be about as easy as SC/Ele maybe only slightly harder (since SC/Ele is just mainly 4-5 buttons at most). I don't think pyro should be simplified at all any more. I like how it looks.

    I don't mind the nerfs to SC/Ele, since that spec seems to pull way more DPS then it should since it is just lazy mode easy, but I am not so happy with the changes to SC/harb, which seems to be a spec that is quite a bit harder and from what I hear does not deal well with disconnects.

    Edit: Also yes, this isn't a guide and should be moved into the "Mage Discussion" part of the forums.

    How it ended-up in Mage guides when I created the thread in Mage class, I have no idea.

    I'll re-publish in the correct section.
