Storm still broken?

Hey everyone!

I was just doing some arenas for the first time, after having stopped playing the game for a few years. In my first match, I was one-hit for 3.4k damage ON THE VERY FIRST TURN.

I assume it was a Wild Bolt. Back a few years ago, you could easily gain arena ranks as a storm by simply spamming wild bolts and one-hitting your opponent. Why, after all these years, is that still possible?

Storm wizards spell are the strongest spell but storm wizard has low health.

If you try just spamming Wild Bolt or Insane Bolt, you'll lose just as often or more often than you'll win. It's not a good way to get rank at all. I tested this out on my high level storm for another site. I was only able to win about 40% of the time by spamming like that.

Why would you even try spamming insane bolt? If I was a storm wizard I would only spam wild bolt.

I don't trust insane bolt at all.

Ashley Star lvl 5 Ranked Veteran in rank pvp.
Ashley FireBloom lvl 24 ranked private in rank pvp.

Storm pretty much spam wild bolts a lot.

Only low level inexperienced players even carry it. It's too unreliable.

Thanks for answering the post. But I would not fully agree with it though.

See you in rank pvp or in the spiral.
