As you probably know I made Lightning PRM Mage Hunter build, one of the most consistent and strong casters around.
18.104.22.168 hotfix now splits Aether damage into Fire and Lightning (was 100% to Lightning before), which is fair. But it seriously gimps Lightning PRM builds since they are getting a much smaller cut of overall PRM’s damage (Cold damage is still fully converted into Lightning). I have just tested it few times, and performance dropped and with it dropped sustain. I suggest splitting Cold damage 50/50 too, it would be thematically correct and only fair.
Here is a current damage breakdown:
My lighting damage is ~2450% and Fire damage is just 1900%. Plus build has ~25% Fire to Lightning conversion on gloves. This is just not fair. If you want to buff Fire part, don’t gimp Lightning part, you can throw flat fire on it, but please give a fair split of Elemental and Aether damage.
