Few updates--potentially not on the upcoming PTR:
1) Not going forward with the 소용돌이
generation change. It's generally way too much disruption and potentially new problems introduced for something that's meant to be a somewhat minor set of changes in this patch. Given all the feedback that was concerned about the slowdown it would cause on 2-3 targets, it's okay to leave 연쇄 번개
generating resource so quickly on 5 targets--it's a less bad problem overall, and also what people are already used to on live.
Reverting the Maelstrom change is also effectively a further buff to 지진
damage. This should be a clear net buff to steady 광역
can be used well (which is not every 광역
situation). It may not completely cause Earthquake to surpass 연쇄 번개
, but it is a big step in that direction. We'll likely tweak numbers further to balance all these concerns/goals. Namely:
--Helping out 지진
--Not causing a large buff to 광역
damage in steady Earthquake-friendly situations
--Not causing a large nerf to Chain Lightning-only burst (which is a strength that Elemental is used to in Legion)
2) Slightly buffing 정기 작렬
's own damage to mostly cancel out the reduction to the stat buff, as discussed earlier.
3) Buffing Frost Shock in parallel with 대지 충격
. We still need to look into 냉기 충격
interactions with the 7.3 set bonus if we go forward with that bonus.
