    Default Prime- PTS - Rune of Smiting broken

    At the moment Rune of Smiting in the Runeshaper soul is (at 3 stacks of Smiting Force) doing less damage on average than your spammable Runestrike. The point of this soul is building 3 stacks of Smiting Force and then blasting a huge Rune of Smiting at the target.. well right now you don't even want to cast Rune of Smiting because it's a DPS loss.

    It feels like it's a broken ability at the moment.

    Do you have proof of it being a dps loss.

    My Runestike hits for an 758.
    While Rune of Smiting @ 3 stacks hits for 1149.

    However over a 5m parse this happens:

    Ya saying it does less than Runestrike is exaggerating.

    It does need the 70% flat damage nerf that was applied to it removed now that the calculation of Smiting Force is fixed though.

    On a side note, Brutalize from the Shaman tree also seems to be double dipping on the prime damage debuff. It should deal 45% of Massive Blow's damage but it is actually only dealing ~17% (37% of 45) of Massive Blow's damage.
