You may have been thinking that it still has the boost ratio of 1x from previous spoiler data. It actually currently has a 3:1 boost ratio, which means it isn’t particularly good at raw damage compared to, say, Sunbird. Its other bonuses are extremely lackluster for something that doesn’t offer control or disable, always drops the turn, and has pathetically slow ramping/sustain.
1:1 boost ratio would have been a 2-3 cast wipe in a lot of PvP situations, assuming similar stat opponents and no barriers, no submerge etc, and would have offered a good quick lethal option for lower stat PvP opponents (combined with another quick striking heavy damage, preferably one that doesn’t drop the turn). I don’t even think that would have been “overpowered”, honestly. Wish this thing would have at least landed with a 2:1 boost ratio for it to be situationally decent.
