    Secondly nerfing any tempest ability DMG at this point is counter productive, as this is mainly a Tempest ability, Tempest soul itself (51-61 pts), damage output is very average and at the bottom of the spec list. nerfing any ability damage is NOT happening.

    However a big shift of damage modifiers from its bottom tier talents to upper tier talent should be taken place.
    Well you were wrong, it did happen. They killed tempest. It is now not viable. Some of the low tier tempest buffs should have been raised in the tree, not nerfed outright. The goal was to have different play styles, not have a one spec to rule them all. The devs need to take a step back, and then tweak up some of tempest buffs in the top of the tree.

    lvl 60 tempest 51/61 are pretty lack luster. I have been testing all night. 51rb/25rb is doing a tad more than rogues range. A tad, not a huge amount.

    Currently as it stands, deep tempest is leaning towards soloing specs. Not saying that's a bad thing but obviously some people do wish that deep tempest was a viable raid spec. We'll see in a few days whether or not it gets changed but it probably will.

    And in your 51/25, lightning tempest+charged pulse should be your hardest hitting abilities so tempest itself is still hitting pretty hard. It's just going 51 into rb instead of going 51 into tempest is currently benefiting tempest by a ton more.

    That is correct sir. At 60 tempest is lackluster since all its goodies are low in the tree. I just wish 51 tempest> for range(within 5 percent of melee) currently 51rb is better for both.

    I still to this day think, that some of tempest low hanging goodies need to be pushed up in the tree, and then buffed to make tempest viable. This would also naturally lower rb without having to nerf hammer it again.
