I'm very happy to see back the meteor spell but...I really wished an heavier effect :(

Have you seen the runestone videos? They're a treat. Youtube it, you can see it gets epic-er. And I love that a small crater appears in the ground too. Totally aesthetic, it fades, but still cool.

apart from killing baal's minions in the throne room i always found meteor pretty annoying to use in D2. Fireball!

my problem is that this "massive" meteor does 250% and a low low level arcane orb does the same 250% for less arcane power

Meteor also produces an AoE dmage effect (100% weapon dps/sec for 3secs) so Meteor can be said to deal 550% weapon damage over 3 seconds to an area. More versatile for finishing low-hp mobs than arcane orb...but still, I wish the damage was higher too

yea... its sound needs buffing, (right now its only a light thud compared to the impact) and maybe some particle detail on its landing, make the impact look more powerful as well, maybe add some loose dirt and rock to be flung

Wow this was a huge nerf in patch 13 apparently, this makes it not worth using for the AP cost imo.

One thing this spell does have over Arcane Orb though is that this can be cast at enemies that are hiding behind other enemies (archers/casters etc.)

It does 100% weapon damage over 3 seconds, not for 3 seconds. This means it can deal 350% aximum.(with no runes that is).

Yeah, except it only does 180% WD now .. so you're probably better off spamming electrocute.

-.- I don't understand the purpose of this.

They didn't even change the AP cost like I thought they would.

It's now a completely pointless spell.

Well not completely, but you get what I mean.
