      Illustated reason why something about death doesn't add up.

      So i thought about learning death pvp particularly at legend and i noticed that death drains are constantly closer to ice/ life damage then of balance in which recent dev diary matched it to.

      This suggest on average drain do less damage then life and ice spell and does the lowest possible for a balance spell at the same level


      2. vs vs vs

      Again drains are on par with the min ice or life damage....



      3.. vs vs vs

      Seeing a trend? Notice how balance once again clearly left the pack.

      4. vs vs vs

      Once again balance edged higher. Frost giant is weaker due to the utility but would otherwise be in the six hundred range. O look again drain is only stronger this time compared to Frost giant because of the rebalance in the utility making drain look more like a damage type and effect.

      5. vs vs vs


      So wait a drain with utility is weaker then a Life or Ice Spell with Utility.


      Let not even talk about how Wraith is only superior to pirate due to conserve being a high level ability other wise skeletal pirate is overall better bet then wraith costing one less additional pip. Or the fact the last regular damage spell with no drain or utility is Skeletal Pirate..... Which means on average death is really tiered with ice and life instead of balance.

      Drains deal less damage than raw damage hits because of their healing capabilities. It would only make sense to decrease their damage slightly in the name of balancing! Plus, Drains are much more powerful now that Enchantments are fully applied to the heal. You're able to both attack and defend with Drains, which makes for a powerful spell- it's only natural that their damage would be below the curve!


      Vampire used to deal 350 damage which was more fitting, but the Devs nerfed it in the first round of Spell audits.Lastly, I'd like to note that the comparison with Spectral Blast, Hydra, and Chimera isn't as fair since those spells are allotted extra damage due to them having Elemental/Spirit damage which is harder to boost.

      Except for 350 being more fitting on Vampire, spot on.
