I don't understand why the majority of the end game mages are relying on this, from my understanding it's a beginning ability that was always meant for helping the newer mages to get through. It was never meant to be used as the instant one hit ko wonder.
Like what's even the point of having other abilities if you can just use this to spam and have more dps compared to when you use anything else. Each and every mage has their ups and downs that's the whole point of choosing elements isn't it?.
There are plenty of other abilities to use for farming and if you can't deal with that sucks for you, it's not like people stay as bunny or cat to farm for glooms since it's too inefficient. "If you don't like how it is for this then make a different class for that" isn't that how it's always been on trickster? Why does the mage get to be an exception?
Considering the devs can't change the formula right now (Confirmed by @Sky in discord) why let this overpowered ability stay overpowered?
I really don't understand the logic here... It just feels like the mages have an op ability and they don't want to let go of it
EDIT: To add to my point. This is a level 1 skill. please let that sit for a moment...
A level one skill that scales extremely efficiently to the point where people base their entire build on this one LEVEL ONE SKILL. This should speak volumes on how idiotic this whole thing is.
Now I'm just a dirty casual but I'm almost sure that no one in the charm class is running around using warm up as their main attack, nor is it stone shower for Senses, and I'm sure that powers haven't touched steel punch since everything else is literally better and more practical than steel punch.
Why I wonder? maybe it's because the level one skills are meant for beginners? maybe it's because it's a stepping stone for you to get your class up to a better place? If the other level one skills are so weak and unusable for higher level then why is it even a question to let the mages get away with Magical soul being so broken to the point where they have their own extremely viable builds? It just doesn't make sense
