Is Chaos bolt bugged?

Comparing crit rate I noticed an oddity. I chain cast incin/cb/immolate for exactly 10 min.



The crit rate for immolate, incinerate and the proc from my trinket (pillar of flame) were all in the mid thirties, however chaos bolt was at 24.3% (fairly close to the character sheet crit).



Now, there were obviously a lot more incinerates cast than chaos bolts so the sample is bigger, but there weren't that many more trinket procs/immolates.



Maybe i'm missing something.

Just went on a dummy.
Incin: 4.9k hit 9.2k crit 40% crit
Chaos Bolt: 6.1k hit 11.5k crit 31% crit

Still a dps boost

All of my abilities are hitting for substantially lower amounts since the last nerf~

I finally thought we would see a new age for destruction ; however its clear affliction is what blizzard is pushing once again. Warlocks will never be in line with mages, its sad.


Got some stats to back that up? At 85 mages have mana issues and we pass them up. At 85 mages can't spam AB like they can now. They'll oom really fast.

Either you're a troll or you're incapable of doing research.

I tested again and damage seems OK compared to yesterday when I tested. CB is hitting for more on average than incinerate now. How odd.
