As many of you may know that pets such as from Venos and Mystics deal full damage to lv 150 mobs (aka lv ? mobs). The interesting thing is Avatar of the Storm counts like a pet and the damage it deals bypasses the level reduction effect. I know because I have been dealing full damage in FSP and FW bosses and other lv 150 mobs such as the seasonal daily quests.
It might not seem like a big deal but let me try to convince you why it is.
There are many 150 mobs that are suppose to take only 25% damage but with a strong Stormbringer things may start dropping like mad. Because of its low cooldown and chi cost it can be casted continuously, needing only one spark a stormbringer can cast attack spells or Lunar Guidance buff to regain enough chi. Even with a 30 second cooldown a sage version can stay out for almost half of that duration. And although the skill doesn't receive base damage from you base magic attack it is nonetheless still strong scaling off your magic weapon.
I understand that Mystics and Venos already get this bonus from their pets however I believe Stormbringers receive a much higher damage output than those due to its 100% scale with weapon damage. If all the classes had the same gear, I believe stormbringer will out-dps any class against lv lv ? mob with the exception of possibly aps sins. However aps is now being nerfed as well with the physical damage reduction that bosses are now receiving such as in FSP.
Obviously this isn't going to be such a big thing or a real uproar but nonetheless I found it interesting and pretty useful for the new class! b:cute
Update: I found myself tanking aggro already in instances like EU with other g16s. I was using g15+4 weapon along with 2 offensive A cards and level 4 Endless Breeze passive. Since G16 is 40 atk lvls with Jones for a 170% damage, it was awesome to see myself with 130% damage out-dps other casters and seekers. However it probably has to do with my Emperor tome and rebirths as well but still nonetheless I feel so much power coming my way when I max out primals, neumas, meridian, titles, and so on.
