385 Area Dmg Tectonic Slam

On at 3:42 PM, darc888ch said. Got a short question; is that one mana leech node supposed to be enough for single target? Or is my dmg so bad? Tooltip dmg is around 82’000 standing in the hideout and i seem to sometimes miss out on a few strikes on a single target cause my mana leeching isnt fast enough to handle the high attack speed:/ im at 101 free mana, running 3 auras. Dec 15, 2017  'Atlas Sad, Atlas Cry' Strongly agree Atlas needs a rework. For the 3rd Ability: Petrify. Tho i do not agree with Brozime, the range reduction for Petrify to. Tired of getting owned by metamorphs, guardians, and those map bosses that used to be a cakewalk, but on awakener 8 have become problematic? Also don't want to sacrifice your ability to deal significant damage in order to survive.without a billion ex budget or unattainable legacy gear?
