Firestorm deals half the damage displayed on the icon

Maybe it's just me, but the number displayed on the icon is not corresponding to the actual damage. Right now even with Flame Engine proc it deals the same damage as Pyro's buffed Searing Wave, but it supposed to hit twice as hard according to ability description. Or is it?) Can anyone check this?

keep in mind level sync, power, crit, enemie buffs/debuffs group buffs/debuffs, and the fact that tank specs do less damage (its built into the tree) all factor in here, based on what you've said it is too little info to determine.

Mine hit for about 20k in 70 content in DPS gear, maybe 18k in Tank gear, 25 or so in 75 content and in DPS gear 30, maybe higher if battle focus is active with Super heated fuel.

Those are crit numbers, arenít they?) Yea Iím getting the same numbers, and maybe max I could get is 46k with explosive fuel + right price in dps gear. The thing is itís supposed to hit 25k basic damage and 35k with the flame engine proc. But it is 13k basic and 18k with flame engine. Just like pyroís Superheated flamethrower buffs 1 and 2 stacks. Kinda sucks if this is our most hard hitting ability. Screenshot:

In comparison Flame Burst damage numbers kind of correspond (same target, same type of damage):

All damage on screenshots isn't crit.

Firestorm is thrash, full stop. I'd waited 58 levels to get my hand into it and it's absolutely underwhelming, even for a tank class. Crushing blow for the Immortal Jugg is way better and it does a significant amount of damage combined with retaliation (which is always enabled after using it)

I've also notice that damage is way off by about 50% from tooltip info in my vanguard shield specialist. Ion wave is about 13k but it hit 8k on average meanwhile Ion pulse tooltip read 3k and it hits for that on average against same enemy. I just come back to play a bit from a long time so maybe I'm missing something or tooltip is bugged or ability is bugged.

Hrm, I can't offer any help.. mine hits harder than any of my other skills. The only problem I have with it is I'll blast a crowd and only 2 guys will get hit. And in PVP it's worthless, you can blast a guy in the face and it will act like he's not even there.. been like that for yeaaaarrrrsss.
