So I heard the new Flame Explosion now can hit up to 30k. How was it compared to other class?
(taking all skills between class into considerations)
Not sure about 30k, but I've been doing some Chaos runs with guild members, and when you've got the defense reduction guild skill combined with Seal Explosion, I've seen my FE crit for about 10-11k per hit.
This. I've been doing some testing,
I have 3700-ish MATK right now and my Flame Explosion does around 3,2k normal and around 5 - 6k critical per hit. This was tested only with Flame Emblem and Dragonology.
Still, it's hard as hell to land 2 crits with Flame Explosion, but now I feel that Fireball and Fireball mastery are a waste of points (With Firebolt in 10 and Flame Explosion in 10)
Firebolt gets more automatic attacks and the Pyro bar loads pretty fast, enough to land some nice damage over a minute.
I have stopped from using Fireball after the patch (Even before re-doing my build).
What's your oppinion on actual Fireball and FB Mastery?
I still like FB and FB Mastery. It procs quite often, and an instant cast Fireball still > Firebolt.
FE lvl 5 crits for ~5k with +20% matk boost on. No idea how someone could do 30 k with it.
Look at my screenies in this topic. (sorry to lazy to reupload)
Problem is, Firebolt damage sucks after the patch too. (~1100k hit)
I used to do almost twice as much damage with these skills pre-patch.
I think the damage on mobs in Dayr/Dair Desert is really low because of the crazy mob defense. If you go back to old world stuff, you'll see that even with lvl 5 Firebolt, you can crit mobs for almost 7k. Of course, this might just mean that rangers hit for 10k+ on a Charge Arrow. I don't have any other geared alts to test it on.
