Lightning Strike nerf
Lightning Strike needs to be affected by target's encumbrance in the same way as fireball. The displacement effect is affecting infernal, while fireball has arguably no effect. Seems unbalanced.

That code has to be reverted. It's just retarded as it is.

However, you have to take into account why we are introducing local banking.
In New Dawn, its main purpose is to be a convenience feature.

I agree. This floating effect which is uneffected by encumbrance lasts too long - like 1.5 seconds (when shot at the ground) and just feels glichty.
Also this goes against Ub3rs vision of not having to skill up another magic school in which you are not specialised in, just for one or two must-have spells. Of course this is not the only thing that needs to be changed (you still need 2 R50s, tornado, ..). But my hope is that some of this will be addressed in the upcoming patch as part of the magic balance changes.

Lightning strike should either lose the floaty effect, or not do damage.

All schools should be like fire. It is the most balanced school imo.

Lighting strike needs a tweak, its effect goes through walls. Not a good thing.

It's effect needs tweaks and to be linked with title. Anyway it's better for the effect to not hit directly, so I don't see a damage problem, just a tweak cause it lasts too long, goes through objects and so on...

I wouldn't use LS if it lost its floating effect.

I don't think anyone was asking for this floating effect at all. It's just a fuckup they introduced and don't care to remove.
Just like with mount despawn, why did they double the cast time on it? What will they do next, double crafting time to be more realistic? These frenchies have a strange feeling for what fun is.
