    Default Buff these souls.

    Just to inform you, Trion made a few fatal, or deliberate mistakes when messing about with the game just before they went awol.

    Anyway, they basically really ****ed up these souls.

    Dominator - Transmogrify is useless, Draining SP/MP is none-existent and the base damage of abilities wasn't increased to compensate, not to mention at the very same time they reduced AoE damage -75%, and didn't increase base ability damage to compensate.

    So they ****ed Dominator up completely. The solution is simple, BUFF THE DAMAGE

    Likewise:

    Stormcaller - Totally ****ed over by the -75% damage nerf to AoE dps, soul has little to no utility, did they compensate and increase base damage? Did they ****. BUFF THE DAMAGE

    Necromancer - Likewise nerfed by the -75% damage decrease and has little to no damage.

    Pyromancer - Just plain not hitting hard enough.

    ------------------------

    And also, Arbiter, just plain not tanky enough, or the cooldowns are too long to rotate effectively making the whole soul a complete mess.

    So basically, I and other players are basically forced to play

    Warlock
    Harbinger
    Elementalist

    Or of course, heals/archon.

    But chloromancer was also nerfed into the ground with the -75% aoe reduction.

    Not to mention all the AoE spells do whack barely existent damage, you could channel 3x devouring shadows on a group of players and probably only do around 14% of their HP, if that.

    The problem is very simple, and always has been, buff the ****ing damage!

    And maybe consider nerfing some BD/Sin/Paragon/Primal Lord abilities while you are at it.

    The difference in damage between say a stormcaller and a warlock is something like x5

    Yes, that's right, around about 500% stronger. That's how ****ing stupid the balance between the mage souls is now since Trion did their stupid AoE nerf.

    They didn't really give any good reason for it either. Probably something to do with Reaver but naturally Trion don't do fixing individual souls no they just did bandaid fixes across the game and really all it did was completely mess things up.

    So can you fix like, a massive amount of these souls in PvP from every calling and REMOVE the stupid --75 percent reduction and do what actually needs to be done in terms of re-balancing stupid abilities like hundred blades etc.

    Because it's seriously stupid to be top 5 in DPS and then swap to a different soul and suddenly be hitting nothing close to the same damage as a Warlock or a Harbinger.

    The difference in the souls is massive and obvious.

    Anyway that's about it.

    Nerf the strong buff the weak, it's a very simple balancing formula...

    Stormcaller damage for instance.

    Living storm does 300 per critical hit. Thunderstorm does 800 ish per tick.

    Legendary Crystalline missiles does 4k, on the same soul build.

    That's how stupid the damage disparity is between the abillities...

    A spammy inquisitor bolt does 9k-15k...

    Same ****ing GCD.

    Pyromancer is also borked. trion decided to cram all the souls damage into Cinder burst and everything else got nerfed. It's not as bad as the other souls but yeah.

    Mage is basically Warlock, Elementalist and Harb

    Nice one. The rest are broken.
