View Full Version : Give flame blade a final tier for lvl25

01-22-2013, 03:14 PM
The spell came out without a lvl25 tier and i think that there should really be one added, it seems unfinished to me. I think it should be fairly powerful also for having to be in a primal destiny to get the druid caster level that high, something fairly epic and very fiery.
+6 Scimitar 2.5 base damage, greater incineration, blazing, blinding embers, fiery detonation. possibly a magma gaurd effect but for a weapon....i dont believe that exists yet.

Another idea would be a 1.5 or times wisdom modifier for attack and damage, it could be interesting but possibly op.

A plethora of other ideas lie in the base dice and crit threat/multi.

I think the hardest part about deciding what it should be is that swailing blade is already so similar.

Suggestions welcome

How about 10% melee attack speed bonus?

melee alacrity exists on many low level items and is 99% of the place that the effect is useful, a stacking bonus doesnt really fit the flavor. Unless u were to really flavor text it in there...

I agree with the idea behind this.

A level 25 flame blade should be more powerful than a level 20 flame blade.

Also fix the bug that it doesn't bypass magic dr if cast in the main hand.

Epic levels do not grant caster levels, so the only way you'll hit lvl 25 druid caster is to be in primal, fury or shiradi if I recall correctly. I don't know of any augmentation of high enough value to hit +5.

And melee alacrity does NOT exist on a lot of named items. It can, however, be crafted on a lot of items.

Well, I just put melee alacrity there because it's useful and there are enough fire-based effects on it already.

Not sure what else would be appropriate, tbh...

What is the final incarnation of Flame Blade at the moment?
