  • What if Hailstorm became like Giant Fullswing

    That don't even have a similar effect
    Or really a similar feel.

    I'm sorry but you're probably braindead if you think this skill is good. An npc wand with nothing on it aside from chaincast 4 will out dps a step 7 staff because you're gonna spend most of your time running around trying to charge hail. I challenge either of you to find one situation where hail is better than any other magic skill, and prove it.

    From the way I see it, Fire is knockback and burst damage, Lightning is stun and AOE with quick cast times, and Ice is repeated hits and conserving mana. When you use Hailstorm it drains a fixed amount of mana and lets you basically magic final hit until the duration runs out. CC Firebolt on the other hand drains you dry of mana faster and has no AOE.

    So just to be sure I tested this with 272 magic attack. Firebolt with a step 6 Fire wand for me is doing about 9800 damage with a critical hit. Hailstorm with 5 charges hits for 16000 damage with a critical hit. At 4 charges, Hailstorm out damages Firebolt with 10800 damage with a critical hit.

    In solo play, Firebolt might feel more useful because you can move around with it charged but in party play with a teammate defending you, Hailstorm is going to win. Now maybe there's some 50mil reforge item that lets firebolt beat Hailstorm in damage and mana cost but I'm not seeing it. So just use other skills if you don't like Hailstorm.

    If you can complain about Hailstorm being weak, why not focus on why Icebolt and Lightning bolt aren't as cancerous as Firebolt. Let's just make every magic skill into CC Firebolt..

    Someone with probably under 1k int claiming they understand what endgame meta is.

    Person A
    Loads hail, charges to 5 stacks and fires for 16.5k damage at 600 magic attack, or 48k with a crit (Step 7 Blue staff, reforged and enchanted)

    Person B
    Spams 7/8 firebolts in the time it takes Person A to load and fire hail. Firebolt doing 7.5k, 18k if crit (Step 6 wand, casting speed 20, no enchants)

    A does at most 48k damage, B does at least 52500, at most 126000. You can't use an off hand mana boosting item with a staff, and since most late game players will have 2.5k+ mana, mana cost isn't valid in pretty much any setting because inspiration is a % based restore.

    So not only does it do considerably less amounts of damage, you can't move, it gets interrupted easily, and in your example needs 2 people. You're ignoring entirely that hail takes a massive amount of time to charge vs firebolt too.

    I guess that makes me somewhat sadistic. =P

    Spoiling a plot that has been over 10 years in the making to a large public space just because someone else did it to you isn't just sadistic: it's borderline crazy. You shouldn't contribute to that cycle out of respect for others who have been wanting to be unspoiled on such things.

    better leave it up then, just so other people can see.

    This is why these forums are a joke there's not a single post on the front page that isn't/hasn't derailed with nonsense and you have people saying hailstorm is good. Oh the lack of moderation doesn't help, even though we have several mods.

    There's a topic about what hot drinks people like that even has a vfm post in it ffs. No one cares about the rules unless it's some mod flexing their power because someone said something they don't like.

    Hailstorm is fine the way it is. You just need to know how to use it.

    Revamp culture is terrible. It's good to have a few odd skills that not everyone can figure how to use effectively. If you want a big Ice AOE, there's Ice Spear. If you want an ice gust, there's Frozen Blast with AOE upgrades.

    Um, excuse me but you're wrong. I know this because I'm an endgame human 1k buffed max, total 11k I'm the strongest in my guild of 3 people and my final hit doesn't have AoE at all, and final strike has a higher number.

    expect this as the average person disputing you. Most of the forums are whales who only buy gacha and don't play, or people that just hit 10k and assume they're super strong because they can solo orbs on elite shadow wiz. There's so much FUD about "endgame" on the forums. There's probably only 25 or so people between all servers at an endgame level where racial difference between human and giant is noticed and even if it's noticed it's largely irrelevant because it'll be a small change.

    Everyone thinks giants are op because you can gear a giant with a fraction of the price it takes to gear a human, and you could probably fully gear 2.5 giants at the cost it takes elves.
