Mage Spell - Strike of Many not working as intended?

    I'm running 4 mages. The 2 mages using the 87 clash of the many spell are doing more damage than the 2 higher levelled/aa'd mages using the 92 spell strike of the many. Same fight, same debuffs, etc.

    The level 82 and 87 versions (Jolt of Many and Clash of Many) are bugged. During EoK, the logic on this line was adjusted so that the lines were mutually exclusive rather than additive. Previously with one pet you'd get the first line of damage, with two pets you'd get the first and second, etc. Now, the intent is that you get the first, or second, or third, etc. The damage of the higher lines was significantly increased to compensate.

    That damage increase was applied to the 82/87 versions, but the lines were never made to be exclusive. Up through 2016 the base damage on lines one through seven was 1,105, with line eight having a base of 1,523, and line nine of 2,285. The sum of the lines of damage was 10,913, whereas it is now 52,414. That's about the same as the level 112 version's highest line (53,881 at rank 2).

    My 86 mage cast Jolt of Many after using the AA ability Host of Elements and no dmg is done from Jolt but I do get the msgs that say Jolt was casted. When Sancus says that Jolt is bugged does that imply the nuke does no dmg??

    What were you casting Jolt of Many on? Its damage is based off of the target's hatelist; it does no damage to targets with no hatelist (e.g. Combat Dummies).

    Sancus how did you know that my testing was against a training dummy ? :) Tyvm

    #1 cause of mages doing no damage while learning about the of many line: combat dummies.

    Nothing to see here, the 82/87 "of many" line is perfectly balanced :)
