Latest datamine changes:
Meteor Cost: 40 Arcane Power / Summon an immense Meteor that plummets from the sky, crashing into enemies for 506% weapon damage as Fire. The ground it hits is scorched with molten fire that deals 169% weapon damage as Fire over 3 seconds.
◦Molten Impact : Increases the damage of the Meteor impact to 2504% weapon damage as Fire and the molten fire to 836% weapon damage as Fire over 3 seconds. / Adds a 15 second cooldown.
◦Meteor Shower : Unleash a volley of 7 small Meteors that each strike for 230% weapon damage as Fire.
◦Comet : Summon a Comet that deals 583% weapon damage as Cold and has a 20% chance to freeze enemies for 1 second upon impact. / The impact site is covered in a freezing mist that deals 195% weapon damage as Cold and Slows enemy movement by 60% over 3 seconds.
◦Lightning Bind : If the initial impact causes a Critical Hit, the electrified Meteor duration is increased to 8 seconds and enemies are rooted for 4 seconds. / Meteor's damage turns into Lightning.
I'm still digesting all the datamine changes but my initial reaction to this is pretty much "woohoo!"
-A nice damage buff across the board on base meteor damage! Almost doubled!
-Molten Impact: Still not as cool as Pulsar but at least the 3s DoT damage is way up from what it was. The DoT quality is hugely important when you have such a long cooldown like this.
-Meteor Shower: More than double damage per meteor! Pure awesome here.
-Comet: Still holding to pretty much the same formula as before. Still seems pretty underwhelming as damage (778%) really lags behind the others despite higher base damage.
-Lightning Bind: Same as it was but with a slightly longer root time on crit. Still looks strong but not quite so dominant over the other runes now.
I like that they've gone and made the runes that are meant to do more damage, actually do a lot more damage. Before it was Molten (480%) vs Shower (728%) vs Liquefy (420%). Now it's Molten (3300% /w cooldown) vs Shower (1610%) vs Liquefy (957% w/ root). The choices are a little more deliberate.
