That is correct. Every cast you have a chance of casting either of those three amounts.

That is correct. KingsIsle changed the card because I think people were complaining. (KingsIsle changed it from being 10% with 1000 damage to 70% with 10, 100, or 1000 damage). I personally think Wild Bolt is a waste now! I always get it to attack only at 100. I really wish KingsIsle would change the card (Wild Bolt) back to the way it was.

They didn't change it because anyone was complaining. They changed it because with all the new accuracy gear, astral accuracy enchancing spells, and regular accuracy spells Storm wizards were almost always consistently hitting 1000 damage without the 10% fizzle penalty. For 2 pips, a 1000 damage is huge.

It is wrong. Its not supposed to me 1, 100, or 1000 or, and read the second or carefully.

There is an extra "or" in the text. The text is not correct, but the card is working correctly. I wonder if it appeared with the introduction of Insane Bolt?

exactly, This was explained in a long post by staff but apparently some things fall on deaf ears.

It's right. They fixed it because of a PvP issue with Chain-Stunning.

Oh yes the card is working correctly I killed myself with the spell, it hit me for 10,000 and yes I was dead thru the battle untill almost the end when another player took pity and healed me. but on the other hand it is never going to be used again. 1000 to enemey but can hit 10,000 to player insane bol?t what was you guys thinking?

That's Insane Bolt. This thread is about Wild Bolt and a text error on the card itself.

KingsIsle most likely changed the card because of this.

+22% accuracy from clothes.
+30% accuracy from treasure card. (Very affordable with drops from just the person you are fighting.)

That's 62% right there. Let's go for more.

+15% elixir

That's 77%.

+85% attack.

Storm wizard could do 1,850 damage almost every turn. If they add a new world, there accuracy will increase even more, letting them do about 2,000 damage each turn, even 4,000 with critical. This is too much damage, storm would be way to powerful and would able to fly through everything they do.
