    Elemental Overload Hotfix 5/23

    I've been looking around and didn't see any comments regarding Blizzard's recent hotfix for Elemental Overload and LvB.

    "Elemental Overload version of Lava Burst should now properly deal 75% of the damage dealt by the Lava Burst that activated it."

    I was just curious as to whether it was lower or higher than 75% of normal damage, tbh I really hadn't been paying attention to it :-/

    same although I think it was lower as we were getting a buff to LvB and yet my numbers barely changed on tues and wed

    looking at my logs from wednesday, overloads did 75% damage, so I really have no clue if it was supposed to be lower or higher

    it could have been a very minor % difference.. like a fraction of a %, so we might not even notice a change.

    I hope it's a "buff" sort of.

    My DPS did well since patch, but not by a LOT, and I suspect more to do with my gear upgrades than anything else. Also my overloads were 75% as well, so I wonder what's up.

    Hope it's not a "nerf" (quotes because its technically a hotfix). Can anyone shed some light on that the change means?

    I checked my Logs from Tuesday and My Overload Lava Bursts indeed only did 71% on average the entire night, Last night it was 74.3%

    ok so it was a very minor fix to helps us, nice!

    The impression I'm getting is that when they updated the main spell to hit 25% harder, they missed the overload version.

    As a feedback, was doing heroic twins today and even before the AOE parts, I saw my single target DPS increased by a bit. I'm eyeballing it as about a 3K DPS increase, maybe more. Not huge, but pretty nice
