Krampus is underpowered

Krampus is commonly used by many fires in pvp, mainly for it's black mantle side effect. But overall, krampus is weak for a fire spell. For those unfamiliar with krampus, it costs 4 pips, has 75% accuracy, deals 305-345 fire damage, and puts a -45% black mantle on your opponent. Comparing krampus to meteor strike is a prime example of why krampus is weak. Meteor strike has the same pip cost, accuracy, and deals the same amount of damage as krampus but to ALL enemies while the only thing better about krampus is its black mantle. Comparing krampus to loremaster is another good example. Loremaster has the same pip cost, more accuracy, does more damage, and has two side effects. I think krampus should either receive a second side effect or have its damage increased by at least 100 damage to balance it out.

Yeah, I think Krampus should do the same as Loremaster or do a little more damage. Brimstone Revenant is even better and it has no side effect, so that's not a good sign.

Yea, I am guessing part of the reason I assumed loremaster was op because loremaster is a lot better than krampus and they're both spells only dropped by loremaster (for now). Simply boosting krampus' damage by 100 or giving it a second side effect like loremaster would be a satisfying change to see in krampus.
