Merged with original topic, please keep discussion on one topic instead of making multiple ones about the same skill.
Personally I feel like if the skill's damage is reduced it's just going to be ignored and useless.
I mean the skill doesn't allow them to use a shield and indeed there are a ton of skills and items that can help counter this skill, especially on our high rate where pneuma gem is easily available. Sigh/AoE skills should interrupt the spam even if they back slide and repeat..u can spam them as well. It is a glass cannon class and build and its damage should be high accordingly.
