Huh.. accidently closed my browser.. for a quick summary...
409 Matk on old Sorc at 24(200 from Elemental Adept Lv3, 24 Levels and a crappy staff)
177 Matk on new sorc at 31(nude, 31 Levels and 16 INT)
692 Matk on new sorc at 31(130 from Weapon Rune Lv2)
Old sorc has Solar Flare Lv3, new one has Lv1.
From memory, Solar Flare Lv1's burn did around 50 on Trainee Island, Lv2 did around 60 and 3 around 70. I'm unable to verify as I currently have 3 char. Canceled deletion on my old sorc to get some numbers, even though she has Lv3, a bit hard to compare.
On twilight hornets(Lv10) outside Ledise, old sorc does 65 per tick.
New sorc nude does 39 and equiped does 39 too.
On owl beasts(Lv26) north of Baston, old sorc does 52 per tick.
New sorc nude does 31 and equiped does 31 too.
On cursed spectrals(Lv30) on Level 1 of Tower, new sorc nude does 30 and equiped does 30 too.
Burn would be affected by Magic Resistance, but not by Matk?
As for Matk ratio, that would explain why Ice Lance Lv3 does slightly more than Fireball Lv3, even though the max damage range is similar. Kinda wish I had went full INT as I'm currently not interessed by PvP.
Fireball Lv3: 63~73, Ice Lance Lv3: 37~78
Ice Lance used to do about 30 more damage with my old staff than Fireball.
I can confirm Burn does not scale.
But; it does tick up drastically: 39; 52; 65. That makes its damage larger than Poison Arrow, both in tick and in initial damage. However, I did notice a problem with Solar Flare: The burn is about 1/2 as fast ticking as poison is.
Although, at high level mobs, it gets dwarfed to 30/40/50. I would say, as the base damage is sizeable, this is "excuseable" because tbh even at high levels Poison Arrow loses its effectiveness.
Lightning Storm, Sorc's Parallel of Dark Scourge, looks alot weaker, but it also has a debuff on it, so I think that sort of balances that.
Elemental Adept overall is more useful than Darkness
Firestorm is pretty much Death Cauldron with a different debuff (Burn).
As for damage, tbh I'd have to level one to 42 to test.
I do know that atm, a Sorc can get almost every skill on both trees. Put 23 in Fire, and 19 in Ice, and you can create a pretty potent toon.
I'm curious to know if Earthbind scales (doubt it does).
I just think maybe an energy shield skill and another aoe would round out the class.
