Fiery blast had been broken for a long time, For starters it only uses 45.5% of out going damage, it does not include double casts only the first hit counts and 45.5% of it. There are already a few ascension abilities that do not work with fiery blast I assume this is another. I'm afraid that this spell is starting to become obsolete like mana burn unless something is changed soon.

i know exactly how it works and that ascension ability works fine, ill get into more detail when i get back from school, i was able to recreate this without using any ascension abilities as well. ill post more parses later with a video as well. ill add up all the dmg not including SDA and multiple by .454 and the amount will still be higher than what it hits for, so weird

I wasn't trying to imply that you didn't know more just stating the fact, sorry. Just did a test on beta and seems to be the same, I found using the ascension spells during FB chain lowered my parse because of the extremely long cast times..

Yes its like resetting the dmg at a certain point or something and looping? Idk yet just speculation but something in the code is definitely messed up

hey oxy can you test to see if its doing the same thing on live? I dont have the stats to reach the threshold because im pretty sure there is something to do with reaching a certain threshold and it breaks it

figured it wouldnt be working properly on live as well, there must be some kind of cap that was put in a long time ago or something thats my guess could be completely wrong though

Yea i have noticed the same thing on my wizard. on live i was getting 1b+ fiery blasts in a single training dummy (its an alt, so only has about 7.5k potency), and when i came over to beta to test the changes, i was getting 400m~, even though my outgoing damage from frozen rain almost doubled.

please fix fiery blast to where it was before these changes. 45.5% is fine, but it needs to work properly.

I doubt its a cap problem. If so, we would have been hitting it a while ago because we have seen higher fiery blasts in the past. I know that a wizard in my guild has had a 7.2b fiery blast.

interesting if they had hit for 7.2 billion there is some type of weird issue not sure what it is, on beta fb still is doing .45* so its not an issue there but yeah its very weird whats going on, not very intuitive

I pretty sure there hasn't been a change to fiery blast its doing the same thing on live as well but that it something that need to be increased.

I feeling it could be something to with 32 bit integers.

Also that needs to be fixed is Ethereal Expertise does not work with Frozen Rain/Detonation, Blast of Devastation seems to only hit one target inconsistently, World Ablaze, Fusion doesn't hit 3 targets.

Since this seems to be a thread of mostly wizzies what ascension class are you all looking into? I tried the Elementalist, but was wanting to look into Etherealist. Thanks in advance for your input.

i mean im not even really worried about changing fiery blast at all as long as it's accurately doing the damage that it's supposed to

Lolololol. You're kidding right? Wizards and necros are #1 on the parse right now.
