    So We've been doing a little testing on Spell Plague after this Publish..

    With 60s In all Resistance (Cursed) Here is some of the damage im seeing.

    Combo Was : Plague - Magic Arrow - Nether Bolt - Magic Arrow

    9 10 9 (Arrow/Bolt Damage) = 28
    23 13 16 22 (Plague Procs) = 74 Damage.

    Total = 102 Damage
    Casting Time = Plague 3 Second, Arrow .5, Bolt .5, Arrow .5 | Total = 4.5 Seconds.

    --------------------------------

    60s Resist (Curse) *Inscribe Myst Mage*

    Combo : Plague - Arrow - Bolt - Fireball

    9 10 15 (Arrow/Bolt/Fireball) = 34
    26 14 17 20 (Plague Procs) = 77

    Total Damage = 111
    Casting Time = Plague 3 Second, Arrow .5, Bolt .5, Fireball 1.5 | Total = 5.5 Seconds

    --------------------------------

    These were two of the Highest damage plague procs, but what ive been seeing is it generally does around 68-80 Damage will All 3 Procs on an Inscribe Myst Mage.

    Now I have a Scribe Myst Mage myself, but i prefer playing my archer mage, However with Plague doing 74 Average Damage with procs, and it being an explosion level cast (3 Second) It almost seems like there is no Point at all in being anything Other than a Myst Mage.

    I dont know about you guys, but man, 100+ Damage for 4.5 Seconds of Casting is scary.

    most people will eat an apple as soon as they see the cursed symbol in the life bar thing. it was said the cool down is 15 sec on apple use ? then it takes 3 seconds to cast plague ? seems like you can cast gh and wait it out np. could also hit the trap box as soon as you see them casting plague and apply bandi in four+ seconds.

    Its more of less the fact that No other 3 Second Cast can Offer anywhere near this kind of damage.

    Plague is doing 30+ More than Flamestrike and HailStorm which are 7 Level Casts.

    You are assuming spell plague has 100% chance to proc at all times that's the first mistake.

    2nd spell plague is also a 7th circle spell and if you don't at least go to 3rd proc you can't out dmg flamestrike omen on cursed opponent which works 100% of the time.

    3rd, if you can't out burst mystic mage on a scribe archer mage you didn't setup your character correctly.

    I'm not a *Scribe* Archer Mage, and its not about 1v1 Burst..

    Its about the Fact that No other Mage Spell / Ability can offer this much damage for the same ammount of Casting Time in the Game.

    If it is infact a 7th level spell (And I'm an Idiot) Its still Out damaging the Other 7th Spells by 15 - 30 Damage Depending on how many Procs you get..

    And 15 - 30 Damage is Quite a Bit when your sitting at 144 HP.

    ive been saying all along, that i have felt spell plague is a great thing. it is an equalizer, it allows you to dump huge damage on someone before they can run away. Just because another combo doesn't have that isn't a bad thing. no one complained the dmg output of exp-fs-omen.


    Besides, it may do 100+ dmg, but its not like ur opponent isn't healing/appling/pottign that entire time. I can heal right through those combos u mentioned, mini-heals and a heal pot do the trick. Also, since sp takes so long to cast, just fizzle it.

    That's my scribe tactics archer mage w/60necro template. I maximized my dmg output on both spells and weapons (even tho I couldnt fully go to 100di, but I dont need 100 di to do 35dmg AI with dual proc).

    A simple explosion flamestrike omen AI w/ proc is instant kill (you are looking at 125-145*if both proc*)... mystic mage couldnt even come close to that and spell plague does NOT proc 100% of the time which OP seems to be thinking...

    If you dont use omen you can put the points in ninja and use Yumi double and you are looking at 125-160dmg depending on procs for even more extreme burst-ability.

    The suit is challenging but not bad for a template that existed back since aos especially a lot of people didnt know and thinking SP is the biggest burst a mage can get.

    IMO SP is good it gives "pure casting" template mages a chance to burst LIKE HOW THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO
