Great nerf to Ice Stab EX!!!

Article about FS EX reported by 独孤杰洛克, translated as below:

Freezing Spike EX Description:
Strengthen Freezing Spike. Create a ice wall in every 2 meter totaling 2 ice wall. After a certain duration, the ice wall will explode and deal damage to the surrounding. For each target, the damage reduces to 30% after 2 hits.
(PVP:  Create a ice wall in every 2 meter totaling 1 ice wall. For each target, the damage reduces to 50% after 2 hits.)

(Previous description: Freezing Spike EX: Strengthen Freezing Spike. Create 2 ice wall every 2 meter. After a certain duration, the ice wall will explode and deal damage to the surrounding. Increase 50% dmg (full hit dmg))

A few important points:
1. The duration for each wall to stay on field reduced by 1s, reducing 2 hits for each blocks.

2. The actual explosion damage is only 15%, same as the touching damage after 2 hits. (Update notice says reduce 50%, but in actual reduce 70%)

3. The damage reduction after 2 hits and the duration for the wall to stay on field did not change for non EX.

PVE Test results:

Case 1: target is a small mob, only 1 cube is accounted.

50% x 2 +15% x 3 = 1.45 X board dmg. (62% nerf)

Assume 1 layer of freeze:
75% x 2 + 30% X 3 = 2.4 X board dmg  (47% nerf)

Assume 2 layers of freeze:
100% x 2 + 45% X 3 = 3.35 X board dmg (48.4% nerf)
--------------------------------------------------------
Compared to non EX:
50% x 2 +25% x 4 = 200%

Assume 1 layer of freeze:
75% x 2 + 50% X 4 = 350%

Assume 2 layers of freeze:
100% x 2 + 75% X 4 =500%

For a mob which does not have superarmor, it can be pushed away and it receives less hit. If the mob is right in the middle of a cube, after it gets pushed away, it receives 1 more hit from the other cube next to it and receives two explosion dmg. Therefore, normal mobs receives 1.1-1.75 X board dmg.

Case 2: target is middle size boss for example bull.

Normally, it receives dmg from 2 cubes, 10 to 12 hits. Depends on the superarmor of the boss, high superarmor boss or when the boss is casting skill, it receives 1 more hit from the last explosion. The calculation below assume 10 hits and may have error of 0.1-0.3.

50% x 2 + 15% x (3+5) = 220% (51.1% nerf)

Assume 1 layer of freeze:
75% x 2 + 30% X (3+5) = 390% (54.1% nerf)

Assume 2 layers of freeze:
100% x 2 + 45% X (3+5) = 560% (55.2% nerf)


Case 3: extraordinary large boss like dragon which can receive dmg from all 3 cubes.

50% x 2 + 15% x (3+5+5) = 295% (54.6% nerf)

Assume 1 layer of freeze:
75% x 2 + 30% X (3+5+5) = 540% (56.8% nerf)

Assume 2 layers of freeze:
100% x 2 + 45% X (3+5+5) = 785% (57.6% nerf)

Conclusion: (in bracket is the dmg before update)
Assume 2 layers of freeze, 2 cubes deal 1696.5%+58021.6 (3787.5% + 129.5K) and 3 cubes deal 2378.5%+81333.8 (5605.5% + 191.6K)

________________________________________

Based on the test result by 独孤杰洛克, the damage of Ice Stab EX without freeze is plotted as below:

Case 1: target is small mobs. EX version deal only 72.5% dmg of non-EX version.
Case 2: target is boss. EX version deal 10% more dmg than non-EX version.
Case 3: target is dragon. EX version deal roughly 50% more dmg than non-EX version. Note that in the previous description, it says increase 50% dmg (full hit dmg).
