The difference between level 1 Cold bolt and level 5 Cold bolt is 12% (26% vs 38%). So what you are saying is, 26% is not real DPS but 38% is real DPS? Ok, let me go think about that for a while. As it has already been pointed out, I am brainless so I may require the aid of an external computational device to assist me.
blabla ninja edit stuff
Now you are just playing dumb... at least I hope you are just playing.
Wizard require procs from firebolt for his skills, spamming coldbolt will not be the best option DPS wise, it can add a bit of utility but thats it, you wont be spaming this skill as it lowers significantly your DPS.
While sorcs will need to spam those coldbolts for WA procs, perma slow plus great bursts of JT`s in between.
about your edit: dude you are clearly playing dumb to troll/turn this into a flame war... Sorc like all classes have some kind of combo, most sorc players here saying you dont have anything to do while varetyr is on CD and anti frozen buff, vs melee characters, you will be spaming cold bolts for kiting and getting extra procs of WA for more 2x/4x outside of FD frozen state... you do that to either stale the other person while your CD`s are up again or even kill him/finish him off. If you even got to this points on a 1v1, the person is really close to death, or you missed all your skills, but complaining about missing skills isnt the point, as every other class/skills can miss too.
I honestly dont care if they are nerfed or not, there can be some actions to make sorc skills act different vs players and vs monsters... this can be done, as is done in a lot of games, pvp mechanics =/= pve mechanics. Look at RO1 for close reference, this is RO2 after all.
I just dont like sorc players coming here and saying the class is fine and it doenst have the upper hand over the others, along with rangers and priests, they are kings of colo. If they indeed need nerfing or other classes need buffing, its a different matter. Just dont say it is balanced, because its clearly not.
