[Suggestion] Change Powerful Aura to hit 5 ADDITIONAL allies

Pretty much the title.

Right now it changes all aura applications that hit you to hit 5 nearby allies on top of you (6 total), regardless of how many targets the skill providing the aura would have hit itself.

If it would be changed to 5 additional targets it would be the same to self application skills but would extend the targets to 10 on the shouts that already have 5 targets, instead of upping it to 6.

You then could make a support that gives regen and vigor to the whole raid and can be extended to either prot (earth traitline) or fury and swiftness (air traitline) or give condi cleanse (fire traitline) or take arcane for less 10man stuff but more 5 man oriented utility. You could react to the raids needs by changing a traitline, while not being able to provide everything at the same time => seems like good design to me.

Viable != Optimal

Not viable = You only get carried, 10 players with a build as "viable as yours" can't properly do it.

    "Seems like a good design to me." Yes, that's very true, but will we see it happen? No, we won't, and that's the sad truth.

    I love this ideal it makes tempest shouts and over all ele blasting skill (frost field) into a good big group support. Right now shouts and frost field blasting just dose not interact with powerful aura out side of getting the 6th person and that just not a GM effect.

    By doing it this way you do not brake all others ele elite spec and the core spec.

    See ELE forms and you will get my views.

    Move the aurashare to tempest. Swap it with heals on aura, moving the heals on aura to water. Makes more sense and opens more playstyles for both tempest, core and weaver.
