A New Crafted Spell for Storm

Storm needs a new crafted spell. I mean, look at Catalan, it does about the same damage as Stormzilla but costs 12 Amber and 50 Sunstone. Few people craft it; even less use it. So I purpose a new crafted spell called, Thunder Cat.

Stun target.

Animation:A storm gathers over a windswept desert, suddenly lightning strikes and a cat fades in and out of view. It then draws its sword and leaps at your opponent.It strikes twice and then is hit by lightning and disappears into the clouds as lightning stuns the opponent.

*note, this spell was created with the thought that Mirage will be the next world*

You are right, developers have neglected to add another Storm spell. All other schools have at least two (and Balance has three!).

I like your Thunder Cat suggestion, although I'd be happy with almost any after effect... doesn't matter to me if it stuns, leaves a 25% trap, gives you a shield, makes you heal, leaves a black mantle, or does something completely new, like a one-round damage over time effect.

But it definitely shouldn't be straight damage without an after effect. I'll get grumpy.

Dat damage tho...
Winter Moon is similar, but costs 1 more pip and does a lot more damage. This spell should be hitting about as hard as Kraken.

I got the spell Catalan in a couple of Knight's Lore Packs;I was very lucky to get it. I like your spell idea,but how many pips does it cost? It sounds a lot like the spell Tempest(with the thunder and rain) and the Myth "stun" spell if it was to stun the target.

ALL those crafted spells are out of whack. The craft cost vs usefulness is ridiculous. The craft level to pip/damage is crazy. That being said, there are some really useful spells you can craft, if only we could craft them at lower times (or you get lucky from Loremaster/packs).

All of that being said, yes, the quantity is unfair; Balance with 3, Storm with 1. We all said the same thing about Fire and then we got Krampus. So, I agree that storm should have a second one, but I hope it does less damage than Catalan; otherwise, what's the point?

It is more of a control spell then a damage generator. Thanks for the thoughts.

If I want a stun, I'll just use a freeze TC. The damage needs a buff.

I couldn't agree more for a couple of reasons,
Firstly my Balance Wizard took on the challenge of crafting the Samoori spell, never, ever again! It took me almost a year to craft (I kid you not!) and now I have a spell that I barely use because it is pretty useless at level 98.
Secondly, at level 100, my Storm Wizard is the highest player on my account and even I notice the lack of a really decent spell at this level.
We can do lots of damage but perhaps another spell that offers us a buff like a shield or charm or something that may add a blade etc.
Personally, I think Storm could do with a DOT spell. Pyromancers have scald and power link as well as fire elf and heck hound, a storm based version of one of these would be great. I know the storm hound spell exists but only as a pet spell or tc, why not upgrade Catalan to spead the damage over three rounds?

Storm got the short end on crafted spells. Another would be nice, and Catalan should have an effect. All the current crafted spells should be available earlier in the game.

There is a serious imbalance in the craftable spells. The most useful are probably Deer Knight and Loremaster, with the next being Savage Paw. That is to say, two of the three most useful are balance. Most of the rest are pretty mediocre, or acquired more easily from dueling lower level bosses then crafting them (duel Koto to get Ninja pigs, for instance). Storm's case is particularly annoying, Catalan is just a reworked version of Stormzilla, a spell that itself is pretty useless, as Triton is learned at a lower level, does more damage, and is less likely to underuse a power pip.

Its Usefulness lies in the DOT and stun. This allows it to become a control spell.

It's not fair to give all the other schools two Lore spells, and give Storm only one.

I remember several posts about this. I made one, myself, in December of last year, when Krampus was released.

Catalan should add an accuracy knock the way the Storm Dragon (that creatures cast) does.

Another new crafted storm spell would be nice. or make Thunderbird crafted.
