Scourge Buff?

General Discussion
Scourge
Explosion weapon damage increased from 130-160% to 1800-2000%

Played with it some today. Was getting bigger procs pre 2.1. Not sure this is working correctly.

Is there a post patch Scourge and a pre patch Scourge? I found one in 2.1 but my pre patch had higher damage roll. Other than that the items looked identical.

Anyone notice this?
Explosion damage was bigger for me. I got a 43m proc once, on average it was more like 30m.
My proc used to be around 10 to 12 on pre 2.1. I believe the Scourge I have now is from 2.1 but not sure, have found a couple and already had two so I scrapped the worst 2. I can't tell pre and post Scourges apart.

My Proc now is from 10 to 12 in 2.1. Very underwhelming.

I wonder if it is a pre or post patch item problem.
I have been playing around with the Scourge. I had a pre-2.1 scourge and it is proc'ing upwards of 50 - 80M that i have seen. Can clear T6 with my barb using Raekor and Scourge with no issues.

Does scourge do aoe or singletarget?
I cant tell. The animation seems to be aoe, but I ony see 1 number if I am not mistaken.
This weapon works and the proc does nice Damage + it can crit

For monk its better to have a Daibo if using Sunwuko

Do you mean in the PTR, or in patch 2.05? Because I don't think it could have been 2.05, since, as you've shown, the Scourge explosion in 2.05 was 130%-160% (although it did scale with crit-squared, so maybe it's possible you got higher crit numbers). In patch 2.1 it does 1800%-2000% but doesn't scale with crit-squared. In 2.1 PTR it both scaled with crit-squared and did 1800%-2000% damage, and that's when people were getting like 400 million crits and stuff.

It does aoe.
I have been using Scourge on my WD and my average crit is 28mil. Cannot confirm AoE but I have noticed mobs melting when I stand in a crowd.
