Re: Firestorm is kind of outcompeted by ignition?

You left out another pro of firestorm, the high damage. Ignition does calc_dice(3, 10+pow/3) damage per explosion, or about 3d(3.3+pow/9). Fire Storm, on the other hand, does calc_dice(8, 5 + pow), or about 8d(0.63 + pow/8). At 100 power, that's over twice the damage from Fire Storm (56 vs 24). So i...

There is a small effect, because the damage reduction from GDR is capped by your AC/2; if you have heavy enough...
