      This skill has a misleading range indicator. When an enemy is near the outside edge of the range indicator the skill wont actually hit them, despite being in range.

          Under Tips one thing is missing: 'waiting' causes it to trigger, since the round begin is when your character acts instead. So, you can actually have all 3 turns of damage in before the enemy even reacts. Here is how to do it: - your Necromancer is out of combat, while the enemies are locked in combat with about anything (summon, teammate, etc.) - You wait until the enemies have acted. Ideally, you used your summon/teammate to somehow clump the enemies together (Teleport, Netherswap, ...) - before you end the turn of your character, you sneak upon the enemies with your Necromancer (he needs to stay out of combat). Then cast Blood Storm. - Blood Storm will trigger once due to being cast. It forces your Necromancer to join in on the fight. End the turn with your active character and your Necromancer will now act. Blood Storm triggers another time. You wait with your Necromancer. Blood Storm triggers a 3rd, final time. Now you can use some other skills like Corpse Explosion, Healing Ritual or similar to clean the enemies up. If your Necromancer is fully commited to Blood Storm, he will have maxed int and high Wits, with Savage Sortilege. Chances are high that he will be the first to act next turn as well.... And yes, the more enemies, the merrier this skill gets. If 3 are clumped together, they get 9 time the damage of Bloodstorm before they can act! Only few enemies survive such a burst....^^

              Extremely powerful with a lonewolf spec: 2h mage with everything in warfare, scoundrel and two handed. pack enemies with Teleport / Nether Swap, cast this (optionally Apotheosis first) and enjoy the massacre. If some bad buys are still alive, finish them with a corpse explosion (another terrific spell). Even non weakened Daeva dies in first combat turn. See Sin Tee's "Elder Blood God (Necromancer)" build for more information. The way he makes his builds forced me to do 3rd walkthrough of the game just to test them ^_^'

                It scales with Intelligence and Warfare primarily. Damage is also increased by the Savage Sortilege talent giving it a chance to crit and following that the spell can scale with Wits and Scoundrel. Lastly it scales with Huntsman if you cast it from an elevated position. Neither Hydrosophist nor Necromancer have an effect on the damage of the skill.

                  Why do the descriptions suck so much? Is it so difficult to do a good job on them? It is very important to say it does physical damage for foack sake!
