Well, we have 2.5 weeks instead of 4 days for them to figure something out. There are some halfway solutions that we could get, like Fire Nova off the GCD (macro it to ALL THE THINGS!), Flame Shock spread on enemy death (so that killing adds is a damage buff rather than a damage nerf), Fire Nova doing increased damage against targets affected by Flame Shock (so that we have a scaling increase over time).The question is what can they do at this point? Weve got 2 and a half weeks till patch lands. A pure numbers tweak on Fire Nova will not fix anything. The 4pc when it wasnt nerfed was still not a solution to the issue. Can they do tweaks to the mechanic at this point? Probably not.
I wonder if Magma Totem is even a factor in their AOE DPS calculations at this point. Maybe have MT spread FS as well?
