    If channeling bonus is near to -90%, then average DPS is same or almost same (Stormbringer has little more anyway).
    So, Demon Spark and Sutra must be used for Wizards often to have same DPS.

    And that is w/o debuffs and stuff...If used right SBs can boost their dmg by 63% for ~20 seconds. Plus they can spawn an AOE that deals additional dmg plus they can spawn a copy of themselves that also deals alot of dmg (the last two only deal significant dmg in PvE).

    Once the lvl100/Morai skills are released they even got the strongest debuffs ingame (up to 145% elemental res reduce) (Excluding demon ironwood as it is unreliable and Wizards spark as it depends on genie-statting).

    SBs are the best DDs from all Arcane classes and that is now...they can just get way better with Sage/Demon/lvl100 skills.

    Wizards'
    Undine Strike (Cooldown 1 second)
    reduces the
    target's Water, Fire, and Earth Resistances for 12 seconds by 60%.

    If enemy has 100% elemental resistance, then you can't reduce his resistance by more than 100% (to 0%) anyway.

    True, but that only applies in PvE, not in PvP.

    I have quit the game 2 months ago and havent seen the new classes. Even without seeing them however, i have no doubt they are OP. Its simple marketing. PWI wants you to build those toons and equip them with R9. Once many of you have done that, they can start balancing again.b:surrender
    Everything i write is from PvE perspective unless mentioned otherwise.

    perhaps you should consider that SB have -20% chan.bonus (thnx Downburst)

    But wizzy has genie skill reduce fire-def. SB hasn't got skill like that.

    ...no offense here..but this thread's got one page atm...and you didn't bother reading the other comments. SBs do have a debuff that is even comparable to spark +undine. This skill is just not released yet. Wait another month then we might have it.

    There is not included quantity of elements, which can use Wizard in comparison with Stormbringer, which do Wizards' hits more powerful against some enemies even without debuffs.

    I had not calculated possible combo (sequences) of skills, I just calculated average DPS for selected by me skills.

    Monsters

    Monsters are placed all around Perfect World and have set levels and elements.

    Elements:

    Metal: Weak against fire
    Wood: Weak against metal
    Fire: Weak against water
    Water: Weak against earth
    Earth: Weak against wood

    Wizard is master of elements:
    Fire
    Water
    Earth


    While Stormbringer is master of:
    Metal
    Water
    only.

    i've read all comments. and i know about 100 lvl skill (you mean this, yes?), but cd of this skill is 3 min, meanwhile Spark for wizzy has only 40 sec cd in the same debuff-time.

    But the most important thing about this debuff that makes it superior to the wizards debuff is that it debuffs 2 resistances. Ofc that is only really important in PvP. While you can simply avade all deadly dmg coming from a wizard by simply using soul of fire...you'd have to be immune to water and metal dmg on the SBs side and that is nearly impossible with the current genie builds. So even if one evades the metal dmg you can still deal deadly dmg with water ijs...and that is really op.

    Ya, that's why I wrote:

    Even my SB itself got Heart of Steal on her genie^^
