Tested it (blew 30% of force in the dummy) and nop. You are wrong.

Apply affliction : wait. Proc

Spam LS, no proc.

I dare hope you didn't ALSO have affliction up, and drew conclusions when a LS crit happened, without checking if affliction also happened to have critted at the same time?

If you have affliction on two targets...

Frankly, this is a pretty bad idea and a nerf to almost everyone.

So grats jerk, BW's going to put it in next patch and call it a buff, then mara are gonna whine that sorcs are super OP now.

If you had bothered reading OP clarification on the first page, you'd be aware off how much your post is unrelated to the thread, and uneccessary angry.

This would be a nerf to full lightning spec in pvp though. Getting casts of lightning strike all the time is far from easy and it would also kill the hybrid specs as for mentioned.

Leave it as is

If they buffed Lightning Strike then this could be a future buff to the class. Although any time Bioware makes an entire spec revolve around one ability it's a mistake.

Yeah like Mercs and tracer missle? Every "buff" for merc has been a complete failure

If you have affliction on two targets- that's 2 tics/3 seconds. LS, the only way to match that would be to do nothing but spam it- which would also mean being able to stand still.

In pve against a single target like a boss I could see this becoming a miniscule buff. In pvp- there is pretty much zero situation ever where LS being what procs this rather than affliction would be a good thing...

With the exception perhaps of there being a time where affliction is made so bad you wouldn't want to waste a GCD on it- but I doubt that'll happen.

It should be lightning strike, not affliction.
I think it is working as intended. I believe that affliction is currently proccing LB which gives the FL buff.

In summary I think there is no mistake.

Not sure what all the hoo-har is by everyone else. Tool-tip states what is actually happening in game as far as I can tell, will test when I get home for certainty. On that basis no need for change/correction. If there was any error then it would likely just have been fixed by changing the tool-tip wordage.

There's no mistake- you can spam lightning strike all day long you will never get a lightning barrage proc- you will only get instant chain lightning procs.
