    Default What you exactly gain from +spell damage effects

    In some ways this is a continuation of my Ring of Supremacy poll thread. If you didn't read my final notes in there, then this won't make much sense to you.

    Now I have a larger chunk of a zonewide parse to work with. It's not a full zone parse, so don't get mired up in how good or bad it is. I didn't remove any of my proc items during this extended merged time, so it should be a better comparative judge of the benefit offered by +spell damage items. Again we use the Cloak of the Burning Prince as the reference item.



    In (ticks landed = total) format (4 decimal places max):
    Ball of Lava 60 = 3900
    Electrifying Flash 20 = 86.6667
    Fiery Convulsions 114 = 926.25
    Firestorm 8 = 115.5556
    Fusion 4 = 86.6667
    Glacial Wind 25 = 108.3333
    Ice Nova 28 = 1820
    Incapacitate 32 = 1386.6667
    Irradiate 218 = 2834
    Rending Icicles 200 = 1857.1429
    Sunstrike 21 = 910
    Surging Tempest 16 = 0 (bugged)

    Total 14031.2819

    In (undebuffed avg, proc count, total damage) format:
    Disparaging Affliction 225.5, 53, 11951.5
    Spirit Feast 511, 22, 11242
    Burning Affliction 616, 23, 14168
    Thule's Temper 413, 27, 11151
    Char 465, 32, 14880

    Now for the final undebuffed rankings. The Bolt of Energy rankings are applied via simple ratios against the Fury of Ro total, and kept at 4 decimal points.

    Char 14880
    Fury of Ro (+65) 14031.2819
    Burning Affliction 14168
    Disparaging Affliction 11951.5
    Spirit Feast 11242
    Thule's Temper 11151
    Bolt of Energy X (+50) 10793.2937
    Bolt of Energy VII (+35) 7555.3056
    Bolt of Energy V (+25) 5396.6469
    Bolt of Energy II (+10) 2158.6587

    Again, tons of rounding, but not enough to change the results IMO. The Cloak of the Burning Prince is Uber, and all other +bonus items we've seen so far are meh.

    Coercer dps is like tantric sex I guess, I'm never patient enough to find out if it amounts to anything.

    A question recently posed is whether the symbol adorn Scintillating Elemental Ubiquity (+25 to elemental spells) is better than Scintillating Molten Ubiquity (+45 to fire spells) for a wizard.

    I'll use the same parse, but with different totals.

    For Scintillating Elemental Ubiquity (+25 to elemental spells):
    In (ticks landed = total) format (4 decimal places max):
    Ball of Lava 60 = 1500
    Fiery Convulsions 114 = 356.25
    Firestorm 8 = 44.4444
    Fusion 4 = 33.3333
    Glacial Wind 25 = 41.6667
    Ice Nova 28 = 700
    Incapacitate 32 = 533.3333
    Irradiate 218 = 1090
    Rending Icicles 200 = 714.2857
    Sunstrike 21 = 350

    Total = 5363.3134

    For Scintillating Molten Ubiquity (+45 to heat spells):
    In (ticks landed = total) format (4 decimal places max):
    Ball of Lava 60 = 2700
    Fiery Convulsions 114 = 641.25
    Firestorm 8 = 80
    Incapacitate 32 = 960
    Irradiate 218 = 1962
    Sunstrike 21 = 630

    Total = 6973.25

    And the grand undebuffed ranking:

    Char 14880
    Fury of Ro (+65) 14031.2819
    Burning Affliction 14168
    Disparaging Affliction 11951.5
    Spirit Feast 11242
    Thule's Temper 11151
    Bolt of Energy X (+50) 10793.2937
    Bolt of Energy VII (+35) 7555.3056
    Scintillating Molten Ubiquity (+45 heat) 6973.25
    Bolt of Energy V (+25) 5396.6469
    Scintillating Elemental Ubiquity (+25 elemental) 5363.3134
    Bolt of Energy II (+10) 2158.6587

    So, you added the +65 spell damage how completely exactly on dots, since not everything ticced out to its fullest? Or on AE DoTs as well?

    I explain the basic formula in the Ring of Supremacy thread. That formula matched every one of my Sol Ro cloak'd spell descriptions except Surging Tempest, which has done its own fucked up thing since God knows how long.

    I'm sorry... But that just killed me.

    Just noticed a mistake, I had Burning Affliction and Fury of Ro in wrong order. Just swap the two.
