storm owl is too over power in person vs person its too high damage. storms wizards and just critical and do about 6 thousand damage with out any blades just a critical. that can kill all schools except ice if they have high resist.it would help allot if you just lower the damage not so high.

Storm Owl is perfectly balanced as is. It does more dpp than any other storm spell (besides insane bolt and wildbolt) at 10 pips, just like every other 10 pip spell within types. It has no effect or special characteristic unlike any other school's rank 10 spell. It is a single target, single hit pure damage spell which is well within storms field of play. If you are letting a storm build to 10 pips without having shields set up and/or killing them then you are doing something wrong.

you are going to have to get used to the fact that storm students are the driving attack force in this game. in PvE (players versus AI enemies) we need that super strong attack power. we have next to no defense and we have the lowest health of every school in game.

and storm is not hard to fight against in PvP matches. storm shields, tower shields, dispels, hexes. seriously one bad juju or an efreet is enough to stop them dead in their tracks. On top of this storm owl is a rank 10 spell. at most you have three rounds to apply shields possibly more if they get non power pips.. it isn't the storm wizards fault that you decide to do nothing to stop their attack.

please learn to adapt to the fight and be a poor sport about it when you lose. it is just a game.

I disagree. Storm owl is powerful, but has no side effects and it's a storm spell.

I would like to see the storm owl hit Amy my balance wizard though.

Amy lvl 90 Not really good in rank pvp though.

Can one of you try to hit Amy with there storm owl my balance wizard only have 3 mana burns in hers deck though. So after she use 2 of them she might have discarded the last one or used the last one.

She only uses it when a wizard puts a tower shield down though. Or puts a minus blade on her.

If they don't spam minus blade Amy want use mana burn on them.

Woah woah woah woah. Lose the damage? Dude, every other school has some pretty high damage with effect. You should be glad and if KI makes Storm Owl's damage lower, it'll be the worst 10 pip spell.
For example, Avenging Fossil. That hits one enemy, then does damage over time to all of them.
Another one, Sun Serpent. Hits one enemy, then does damage over time to all.
And storm owl does 1525-1625. To one enemy. So do you think it's fair that most of the other schools get AOE's while storm is stuck with one person target and doesn't do much damage? No, I certainly don't.
So why are you complaining? And it's not very effective in 3v3 or 4v4, so just do that instead of 1v1 or 2v2.

Thank you! like you said we need that super strong attack power. I agree. Plus we have technically NO DEFENSE and like you said the lowest health. We need the attack power otherwise Storm, well, won't be a very good school and there would be a huge argument about storm not being balanced like the other schools.
And, like you said, you are able to place shields down. So, if anything, raise the damage for storm owl.
