First of all thanks Anakte. I have referenced this quite a bit.

What I just realized is the 100% MP increase associated with casting Fire Spells with Astral Fire active.

So when I accidentally cast a second Fire III at the start of rotation, or after Blizzard III, it really hurts the MP bar.

I've read that the damage increase for casting Fire Spells with Astral Fire active is about 40%. Not sure about that.

It's sad that you have to mouse over the Astral/Umbral icons to get the description of what they do. They should really described under traits or something so you can read about how they effect your casting out of battle. Without this forum it would be difficult to understand the very significant effects they have on your rotation.

Thank you and on a side note I'm working on a chart for all abilities average damage in all states. I've been really busy though lately because I'm in the process of buying a condo and it's taking longer than I hoped.

I will say that right now on average my (naked) Fire I base is 75.10 while my Fire I in Astral 3 is 135.60. So the increase is about 80% for Astral 3. Astral I is about 40% and Astral 2 is about 60% so that's a safe bet.

What I'm getting for Fire I in Umbral is roughly -8%, -20%, and -30% to damage. I wouldn't be surprised if that Umbrall 1 is supposed to be -10% but I'll check it again.

Testing with 25 Blizzards under AF1, 2, and 3 show that Astral Fire provides -10% per stack to damage of Blizzard, and presumably all other ice spells.
