      Storm lost thunderbird but gain the new bird with the aura so its not a lost at all. Storm barely use any of the others tc banned. Yes, when changes come one school or more schools will suffer and some will gain but when one school in this case fire keep getting hurt with each update enough is enough

By the third blade, Climaclysm pulls ahead (2,832 vs. 2,805) and Myth will have to rely on having somewhere in the ballpark of 20-40% extra damage to still be a better hitter than Ice.
      Thanks for the info, here is the updated data!:

      Snake Charmer:
      1,140 * 35% Blade =399
      1,140 + 399 = 1,539


      1,140 * 35% Blade * 35% Blade = 938
      1,140 + 938 = 2,078


      1,140 * 35% Blade * 35% Blade * 35% Blade = 1,666
      1,140 + 1,666 = 2,806


      Climaclysm:
      1,032 * 40% Blade = 413
      1,032 + 413 = 1,445

      1,032 * 40% Blade * 40% Blade = 5781,032 + 578 = 2,023

      1,032 * 40% Blade * 40% Blade * 40% Blade = 2,832


      Even though Ice slightly pulls ahead here, I would argue that it's a false positive. Conjurers have significantly greater Damage, Critical, and Pierce, so it should be at least 2-4 more Blades before Ice comes out on top.

Orthrus is a strong spell and all, but Ice gets something leagues better in Polaris.
      KingsIsle: Ice is too strong! We need to balance everything!
      Also KingsIsle: Let's buff Snowball Barrage!

      Yeah, Snowball Barrage in it's current state is insanely OP and rightfully deserves a nerf. It's just so obscenely overpowered that it makes me question the Devs capabilities to ensure the game is balanced!

      Don't worry- we are watching the meta as it evolves. Also do remember that the audits are ongoing and will be throughout this test realm.

      The damage cap and resist are working well! Ratbeard said ya going to take a hard look at pierce and shrike next which a lot of us think should be nerf or balance as well. Thanks, everyone looking at this test realm very closely

      Yeah, I really don't trust the Devs at this point to heed our feedback and not implement any of these unwarranted spell/stat nerfs. If 20+ pages of Players rallying against the Knight-Night event wasn't enough, then nothing is.
      Not to get too far off topic, but the spring pet update was not a nearly universally hated. There were several really good point to it that were good. The issue is, that how it it now, should have been done at first, so the person to person hatches would not have failed. The only thing that help it to come back to live is the lending pet feature. The only really issues is the search for talents is limited to only 2, I personally like to see that at 3.

      Eric, I am really sorry to say, but most times it is.

      Far too many times, many of us will go on test and see things and players will say something, but it still goes live.

      Jared does have one point, that too many bug reports from test ends up on live. I personally think it's because they are rushing to get it to live for those who are impatient. I personally like to see KI take their time, get most of the bugs out that players report and then have new updates go live. I think it would make the experience more enjoyable.

Present day Malistaire will still have 8,000 health, and ice will have a 35% blade. KI originally lowered health on all mobs and bosses in the game to counteract all current and future rebalancing to spells, whether that be from spells rebalanced in 2020 or spells rebalanced beyond that.

      Would you have prefered KI keep all mobs and bosses at pre-2020 levels (ie. Malistaire @ 10,000 health) and the blade rebalance? I'd much rather have my ice wizard go against the 8,000 health Malistaire with 35% blades over a 10,000 health Malistaire with 35% blades.
      But I gave you the calculations already, it still takes the same amount of blades/attacks using either a 40% or 35% blade. If Ice blade is 40%, you need to hit nine times with a max Colossus paired with an Elemental blade to beat a 10k HP Malistaire. With a 35% Ice blade, you need to hit 10 times with a max Colossus paired with an Elemental blade.

      With an 8k HP Malistaire, it takes 8 hits with Ice/Elemental blade (regardless if Ice blade is 40% or 35%). So it isn't any easier like you're claiming it to be.

      The storm beetle pet, with its 4x storm beetle cards, is a very popular card for many wizards. It was the unofficial pet of the KWSN group back in 2012. It's a great pet for a storm wizard, since its a storm shield break and universal buff in one action.

      Storm needs all the help it can get breaking shields, since it has no natural DOT or other way to remove lots of storm shields. Frankly, it's weird they kept Storm elf, but didn't keep the Storm beetle pet/cards.

      Yea i know what you mean, everyone has a dot now and thats why storm elf is not being ban yet. They might get a new dot spell and ban storm elf in the near future.

      With an 8k HP Malistaire, it takes 8 hits with Ice/Elemental blade (regardless if Ice blade is 40% or 35%). So it isn't any easier like you're claiming it to be.
      Ok I see your point. If you look at the game update-to-update (one-by-one), instead of taking ALL updates in relation to the audit into account (including updates that haven't happened yet), then yes you are correct that Ice will have a 15% dip in power compared to the current live realm, and in turn will be weaker. Your argument only talks about what is in live realm right now vs. what is in test realm. If you look at ALL updates in relation to the spell audit (2020 and beyond), then yes it IS easier for an ice wizard to quest post April 2021 than in pre-2020. I guess I'm being naive in thinking casting 8 Colossus is easier and less time consuming than casting 10.

      Odds are, this isn't the end of the spell audit. If KI decides to deal with the 3-6 pip spells in the summer test realm, understand that the 20% reduction in mob and boss health takes into account that part of the audit as well, as did the 0 and 1 pip spells in this current test realm. I personally think it wouldn't be fair if ice's blade were to be nerfed, only for the mobs and bosses to be at pre-2020 health levels. That would make it waaayyy more difficult to solo quest on weaker schools.
