    Default Flame Blade Scaling

    Torc, is it possible you could squodge in some time to take a look at flame blade scaling? It potentially opens a very limited option for druids to get wisdom to hit and damage, but the scaling on it is quite poor.

    Not only for druid. It is also nice option for elven warpriest (he can take active druid past life to can cast the Flame Blade 3x per rest) for example.

    (of course with a flaw/bug, that his enhacement bonus to favorite weapon will break pure fire damage of the Flame Blade, so it will not bypass DR no more)

    That reminds me: does Flame Blade's WIS to-hit and damage finally apply in animal forms? It's still weaksauce, but at least it provides options for heroic leveling.

    That would be cool.

    There's just so much that ought to be done with a druid pass. I hope this doesn't get rushed out. I'd rather wait another update or two and get a proper revamp rather than some tree shuffling and basic melee functionality right now.

    In this day and age that sort of weapon breaking is extremely easy. Arcane PLs, Arborea, friendly warchanter/artificer, etc.

    Edit: I'm in agreement with SerPounce on atleast pushing the druid pass back another update or patch or two. Still too much to be done to let it go live with the initial update.

    Yes, I tested it, it was working.

    Sweet, definitely opens up some new options.

    Makes shifting into Bear/Wolf on a caster build to melee on cc mobs doable, potential hybrid caster builds, ect...

    Hopefully, we can get some better Epic Scaling when we get Air & Earth Forms if not before...
    Would be nice to see a Cold/Electric/Acid selector option as well if one is going into the spell...

    Nice, some of my build ideas are marginally less gimp than I feared.

    I don't even play Druids at all and this would be awesome.
    Snarky, yet ultimately derisive comment goes here
