Please consider adding a single target nuke to the earth spec line. We have the aoe damage snare, just need the same for single target. Something to compliment the bolt. I do not believe this will make them overpowered.
Right, cause Wizards don't already have everything in Earth.
Earth-wizard is gone from "completely useless" to the go-to spec on Phoenix, because of all the custom changes here on Phoenix. With Earth, you can debuff your ice baseline-nukes or fire baseline-nukes (depends on your sub-spec you went, e.g. 49 Earth / 22 Cold or 49 Earth / 22 Fire).
Overpowered to their counter-parts, not overplayed in Albion. Contrary to popular belief, there is a difference.
RC Runie debuffs for his entire realm, Earth Wizard debuffs for his own DoT/Bolt or sub-spec damage (not both at the same time) and Cold/Heat trains are rarely viable in Alb. To have two Wizards in your group or your Theurgists nuking, you sacrifice a lot.jelzinga_EU wrote: ↑Fri Apr 19, 2019 5:37 amOverpowered to their counter-parts, not overplayed in Albion.

Wizard used to be all damage, no utility. It was simple, if you wanted to do damage you went Fire and burned stuff up. Then resist-buffs and SC where added and suddenly Fire wasn't that anymore. Rather than leave Wizard behind, Phoenix decided to change Earth-wizards to be viable. They added Nearsight, resist-debuffs, AoE-root to Earth. Now Wizard has utility and with the resist-debuffs for their own damage-types they do ranged damage which is comparable to RC-runies and Mana-chanters.
If you look at, for example, a RC-runie you will see that when you go the debuff-line (RC) you get a Bolt (on a different dmg-type) and an AoE-nuke (on a different dmg-type). RC needs to go Darkness in order to reduce variance on his cold-nuke.
Wizard goes Earth for debuff-line, you get a Bolt (same dmg-type), AoE-nuke (same dmg-type). But you also get AoE-root, Nearsight, DoT (single and AoE) and an AoE-snare nuke.
As you can see you already got way more stuff as an Earth-wiz than a RC-runie. This is the overpowered part compared to your counter-part. This is why adding a single DD to Earth would be even more overpowered.
I hope this clarifies what I mean with overpowered, rather than looking at "what everyone plays must be OP and on the Herald, if it's not topping just throw in more stuff".
