Questions about shocking orb.
« on: September 14, 2014, 04:32:16 PM »
I really liked the fire-and-forget theme of the new shocking orb :D

I have some questions to ask.

I wonder that I did not see any single crit on the orb. I think the orb should be able to crit as other of the embermage skills too (maybe lower the damage by a bit to compensate that).
Also, what kind of damage scaling does it have? Does the skill deals flat damage, scales on DPS or weapon damage?

Thanks!

mmm ya its a monster, I doubt it has any crit %.. I might be able to transplant the players % on to it.

Wow thanks for the explanation!
So It's like some kind of a pet right? So the damage wold be increased by pet dmg% or something?

Maybe it might be nice if it can inherit crit% from you too.

Considering the Embermages current abilities seem to be doing quite miserable damage i think it would be ok to make the orb do good damage, its a short range anyway.

Not to mention it does crap damage atm.
What was once dead, can be made into servants of death and destruction. Feast on the innocent, slaughter the weak and punish those who would stand in your way!

I'll make it use your dps instead of the monsters :)
