The class designers have filtered out a little more information
regarding our Mind Flay upgrades
, and it's very pleasant to hear. In addition to the higher coefficient on Mind Flay and gaining an ability to crit, Shadow Power
will give Mind Flay 100% bonus damage crits, rather than the baseline 50%. This is very good news, because 50% crits just don't cut it anymore. Almost everybody has 100% bonus crit damage via talents, and not having the option to spec that way is quite
a hurdle when you're trying to be competitive. Very good news indeed.
In less game changing but still exciting news, Mind Flay
and other beam-type spells (Drain Life
, Drain Soul
, etc) will be getting a graphical overhaul
. Perhaps they'll be more like Penance
's fancy missiles? Or maybe they'll just be more of a beam than "behold my blue/green/purple/yellow squiggly line of doom!" Either way, I'm happy to hear it. I'm a firm believer in 'shinier is better.'
