    Default Why isn't Living Flame comparable to Riftstorm?

    It currently shares the same PBAoE mechanic but with less damage, with twice the CD, costs 20 more points to obtain, and is only available in specs that can't match the gap-closers and passive mitigation of a Riftblade spec. It's the same ability with none of the advantages of Riftstorm.

    It does need buffed since its so bad for 51pt 60s CD.

    BUT with respect to your riftstalker synergy and ST focus.

    Because Living Flame is a balanced ability.

    I like 51 NB as it is. It'd be nice if SoD at 51 points gave that damage to 30 attacks instead of 20 (makes sense to me for it to be 30).

    I would be very careful with touching 51nb. I think they are very balanced tbh. They don't have gap *closers* but they have gap damage. With SoD even that gap damage is nothing to shrug off, especially when the ranged finisher comes at you or if their temp if up and you are getting spammed by the heavy hitting snare ability. Combine this potency with the fact they do need to inch a bit closer than most rogues (and in turn earn themselves bigger hits imo) and have a little bit of survivability (higher specs) to combat the need to be close but also aren't anything hard to take down or tanky like.

    Living Flame doesn't need to be more like Riftstorm. Riftstorm needs to be more like Living Flame.

    And 51 NB has gap closers albeit they're in the BD and RS souls.

    i agree, personally i still do not see a problem with riftstorm, it's riftstorm built in with everything else wrong with warirors that make it seem op. living flame however is just not enough damage for the duration of the cooldown, imo one of the two needs an improvement, and personally i would like to see lower cooldown because it makes it much more viable.

    Living Flame is an ability that needs to be used well and paired with other cooldowns to quickly burn hard targets, but it will burn those targets down. It's also not a finisher.

    But man, making it like Rift Storm (double tick rate, half cooldown, scaling finisher) would be hilarious, and man oh man, the tears would flow.
