Damage done over a 2 minute period with +3d6 Sneak attack
2.44 * 210.5 * 80 + 3.00 * 190.5 * 80 + 1.87 * 210.5 * 40 + 2.30 * 190.5 * 40
41089.6 + 45720 + 15745.4 + 17526

Damage done over a 2 minute period with 1000 Cuts and Growing Storm
4.44*216.5*6 + 2.44*216.5*9 + 3.00*196.5*15 + 2.44*200*65 + 3.00*180*65 + 1.87*200*40 + 2.30*180*40
5767.56 + 4754.34 + 8842.5 + 31720 + 35100 + 14960 + 16560
117,704.4

2376.6 More from +3d6 Sneak Attack thats a 2% increase in damage So the cheep +3d6 sneak attack found in DS is worth more then the Tier 4 and Tier 5 ability in Tempest.

Damage done over a 15 Second Period +3d6 Sneak Attack
2.44*210.5*15 + 3.00*190.5*15
7704.3 + 8572.5
16276.8

Damage done over a 15 second period with 1000 Cuts and Growing Storm
4.44*216.5*6 + 2.44*216.5*9 + 3.00*196.5*15
5767.56 + 4754.34 + 8842.5
19364.4

3087.6 more damage from 1000 Cuts and Growing Storm that's a 19% boost. Interesting that its less then 25% boost even when in its most favorable configuration. Lets see what it looks like when we remove hast boost and compare 1000 Cuts and Growing Storm to
Damage boost.

Damage done over a 15 second period with 25% Damage Boost
1.87*250*15 + 2.30*225*15
7012.5 + 7762.5
14775.00

Damage done over a 15 second period with 1000 Cuts and Growing Storm
3.41*216.5*6 + 1.87*216.5*9 + 2.30*196.5*15
4429.59 + 3643.695 + 6779.25
14852.535

So a tier 4 + tier 5 ability are a hair better then a Tier 2 ability over a 15 second period the Tier 2 damage boost still has 5 second of duration left though. Its rather clear that there's no point in buying these abilities they just are not worth the cost even at 6 AP they would be badly over priced.


Damage done over a 6 second period Base
2.44*200*6 + 3.00*180*6
2928 + 3240
6168

Damage done over a 6 second period with 1000 Cuts
4.44*200*6 + 3.00*180*6
5328 + 3240
8568

1000 Cuts adds 2400 over base that's a 39% increase do to the the way this will stack with other boosts if this was reduced to 3 AP it would be something to consider.

Damage done over a 6 second period Base
2.44*200*6 + 3.00*180*6
2928 + 3240
6168


Damage done over a 6 second period with Growing Storm
2.44*216.5*6 + 3.00*196.5*6
3169.56 + 3537
6706.56

Growing Storm adds 538.56 over base that's a 9% increase this ability is very weak it needs a boost it should come out some where closer to 25% increase to make its worth as much as damage boost just with a longer cool down timer do to its stacking with other buffs.

Note this was done before the change to Growing Storm to only be 3 AP I still think it needs a boost of some kind.

So my initial judgement of "over-prices junk" is still valid?

Still can't hate on it too much as there's reason to invest in multiple trees for rangers, the Tempest top tier stuff might be garbage but tempest/ranger overall is looking wonderful.

Ya its not very good stuff. I'll take the Sneak Attack out of DS maybe pick up one or to of the sniper shot clickies in DS as well.
