So I'm well aware of the strength of AM at the moment but I fully believe that Lightning and Storm could take a good looking at.

The trees function rather well and have good synergy (though the dependence on daze effects can be somewhat frustrating) but unfortunately the mana costs for the sustains is well above reasonable given the obvious alternatives. Wildfire/Aether offer just as much if not more utility with heavy shielding and debuff/sustain cleansing while having significantly more reliable damage and much, much lower sustain costs.

Personally would absolutely love to run a lightning/ice AM at some point but every time I do I'm caught leaning into Fire/Arcane/etc. if for no other reason than base functionality and utility.

Anyhow I do believe that the sustain costs are the primary issue with Lightning and Storm and perhaps touching those up a bit would go a long way to making those trees a bit more viable compared to the other much more popular builds.

Evidently Darkgod agrees. Chain Lightning now costs 30, Thunderstorm 30, Hurricane 50, Feather Wind increases stun/pin immunity, and Nova and Shock deal substantially increased damage.

Please note that Feather Wind already made you completely immune to pins at TL 4 since levitation = pin immunity as a side effect (the only effect in fact). It is also a form of immunity that cannot be lowered through standard pin immunity lowering debuffs.

It doesn't work against talents that don't check for pin immunity though :p

I'll admit I didn't expect this to go anywhere as I figured DG was too busy with the new release.

Very very happy to see some love for alternate trees. Thanks DG!
