Flame burst / Ion Pulse actually does elemental damage, which by default ignores armor.

However, it is certainly not an OP damaging ability compared to other instant casts and it is our main spam tool, making it have a cast-time would absolutely ravage this class.

Can you imagine a Vanguard tank having to cast his main ability constantly to get aggro (already a problem) and stacking absorb buff up while being involved in multi-mob, or mobile fights in raids.
That would be absolutely ridiculous.
