Seems arcane prodidgy no longer benefit from metas :S
Uncalled for imo.

Add it to the list of undoc'd changes.

Hmm...that just took it from marginally useful to pretty useless.

Yeah, I used it as a last resort to kill stuff after my sp had run out due to the random nature of it(like casting ice version of it on skellys) now its entirely useless..

Weird; Wiz PL is still normal though (Meta's apply)

It seems like they are still applying on live to me. Is this on Lamannia only?

Something definitely seems wrong. I thought immediately did they nerf sorc past life when i got some puny damage numbers like 67. However i did still see some crits for 500+ so im not sure whats up.

Metas do apply to it.

But in my testing, yea it was really weird and inconsistant.

Release notes say something about CL effecting feats that are spells, like this..

So I tested if that works and it was really buggy.

The new robe, does give it +1 cl, so it casts at lvl21 acording to the combat log. Tho I didnt notice any damage change with or without the robe on.
But the staff of arcane power doesnt effect it..
Nor does savant cl bonuses.

Turbine really should clarify the description of this so it tells you what works, and make it better. Right now not worth a feat slot even on a pure nuke build imo.

I think it works like mrcow said tho a while ago:
Max, Emp, Quicken apply, not heigten.. So very hard to get any kind of good dc onit
Considered lvl2 sorc spell.. effected by enhancements/items like a normal spell
So DC: 12+charisma
Considered evocation, so bonuse to evocaiton DCs may apply
Whatever the damage is, its not per the description, and stupidly caps at 20.

Yah somethings odd about arcane prodigy ATM. Seeing such a flux in numbers... Can't get on too test but when I can next il try figure it out.
