MMAI.5892 Posted October 10, 2017 Share Posted October 10, 2017 ToJ is just too strong though. As others have mentioned the sheer AoE damage FB can pump out in ToJ would be massively OP if Renewed Justice refreshed pages while still in Tome. RN we can burn through a healthy swath of mobs generally in one tome rotation without maxing out possible condition damage through gear. Add in the boons we can proc with mantras and our damage would be pretty massive. Even without max CD gear I can dish out around 8K dps consistently in one ToJ rotation. With party members it's closer to 10-15K - depending on number of party members. (Maybe higher). I'm sure with max gear it'd be much, much higher. The way it works now is a bit clunky, I agree, but it also forces us to make some decisions. "I've got 10 mobs, 3 are about to burn to death, do I stow tome and get a full refresh or do I do some fancy footwork, save my last three pages to finish off the next three and get my refresh from them?" Make it too passive and playing FB turns into 'burn everything until it's dead because I never have to worry about running out of pages.'Got a bunch of mobs with a couple of vets/elites? Right now we have to manage our kills instead of just burning the trash mobs out of existence immediately because those easy kills will keep giving up ammunition to sustain damage in longer fights. No trash mobs around? We have to pay more attention to Quickfire and the other two tomes as we dance with - in my case - two veteran branded hydras, but I digress. If we don't have to make some tradeoffs in managing the potential damage ToJ can do, then we'd also have to accepted some pretty hard nerfs to ToJ's damage output to compensate. Otherwise we'll make balth look like a chump noob as we set all of Tyria ablaze. Personally, I like the way it is now. If I want for anything with FB, and it's a small, probably personal want, is more incentive to use the other two tomes. But as I said, a small want.
