Post subject:  Arcane Vortex Question

The desription of Arcane Vortex reads:

"Creates a vortex of arcane energies on the target for 6 turns. Each turn the vortex will look for another foe in sight and fire a manathrust doing xxx arcane damage to all foes in line. If no foes are found, the target will take 150% more arcane damage. "

As far as i understand it all arcane damage on the target (if alone) should be increased by 50%. But only the damage from Arcan Vortex itself seems to be increased if the target is alone, all other arcane damage (like Manathrust) is not affected. Is the spell intended to work this way? (ver 1.25). If this is the case, the description is kind of misleading.

The description is misleading, yes.

This actually sounds like a really interesting idea...

The discription is either very misleading or the skill is bugged. As I understood it, arcane vortex is meant to increase all arcane damage if the enemy is alone, because the text does not say nor does the game show graphically that arcane vortex shoots beams at the vortex'ed enemy himself if he is alone. It's my understanding from the skill description, that if the enemy is alone and vortex'ed, the vortex would deal 0 dmg if it's not hit by any other arcane spells.

The description is misleading, and your understanding is not correct.

Yeah, that needs rewording. Something like:

"Creates a vortex of arcane energies on the target for 6 turns. Each turn the vortex will look for another foe in sight and fire a manathrust doing xxx arcane damage to all foes in line. If no foes are found, the vortex will damage the target for (xxx*1.5) arcane damage. "
