from what i see, it randomly cast things (or not) and sometime do extremely low damages. also it dont mimic like 80% of the things i tried on other classes.

it's real simple.<br />you cast it on someone, and it casts 3-5 spells during that time that whoever you cast on casts.<br />it doesn't cast random stuff.<br />it's all about who to cast it on someone

yeah by randomly i mean it will cast spells or not, but never skip the sames. for example on a wizard it casted 3 spells but 3 times differents with the wiz casting the same rotation.<br /> <br />i do think too the best target is ourself since we can cast whatever we want, except i had some weird bug where my double only casted spells for like 1% dmg of mines.

I haven't been able to get in to test anything .. I am living vicariously through you all. Keep up the good work.

It also nicely works with Blinding Shock (new prestige tree spell)
