Many have pointed out that sometimes meteor is too obvious of a choice to put in your loadout. I agree because...looking at the spell comparison chart, meteor has a very healthy damage to mana ratio. There is no real tradeoff when choosing meteor. You dont have to say "do i want a spell that lands easily or a harder spell to land that does more damage." You just say i want both and take meteor.
To encourage use of other spells and make meteor more of a strategic decision, i suggest that it do less damage. Overall, i think the damage to mana ratio just needs to go down slightly. Decrease damage or increase mana. Even at 20 damage i think meteor would enjoy popularity because of its awesome splash.
Wands community, what say you!? Both poll options reduce the ratio to 0.5, making it lower than most spells. If you dont think a balance is necessary, please explain in a comment. Thanks.
