I have two issues regarding flamestrike in the spell info section.

First off, I would appreciate Flamestrike DPS for a single cast (instead of spamming it - which no one ever does anyway).


But I thought, what the heck, just calculate it yourself. But when I look at the breakdown for the spammed flamestrike damage I get 1430 Dot damage for a cookie-cutter ttw-firemage with about 2200 SP. What's that number supposed to be? It's way too high for a tick and way too low for the total dot Damage. Can someone shed some light on this, please?

It's supposed to be value of full dot on one target. Why do you say it is way too low for total dot? I agree spammed flamestrike doesn't make any sense, that's a relic that's probably remained unchanged from before BC.

Wowwiki and the Frostfirethread on EJ tell me that the spellpowercoeffecient for the total dot damage over 8s is 48,88% or something close to 50%. Flamestrikedot basedamage is 780. Hmmm: 0,5*2200+780=1880. And that's before multipling with the firepower etc. And like I said, Rawr shows only about 1400 dot damage. Maybe someone messed up the coeffecient for one tick with the coeffecient for the entire dot?

The coefficients were wrong, I've fixed it for next release.
