questions on elemental arrow

why ball lightning doesn't do as much dmg as nether tentacles?

ball lightning seems to do around half the damage of nether tentacles.
can someone please explain why not.

thanks for reading :)

BL was designed to hit on average twice for half of the damage and in a larger radius (20 I think). This can work for and against you. If the monster is huge and/or going in the same direction as your ball lightning you can get more than 2 hits. Conversely, if the monster is small and/or moving away from your ball lightning it will probably only hit once.

^^ This is all correct.

The most important change to Nether Tentacles is that it can no longer hit multiple times, even in a Slow missiles bubble. It is the most irritating problem.

BL, conversely, is AMAZING for slow missiles bubble and can take out an elite before they even aggro to you.

ball lightning is best for strafe builds and mp0-1 in general where you can face tank packs of mobs and spam it.
