I got a lvl 1 Foh and I dispise it and stopped. However, Since Blizzard upped the damage tremendously, I decided to give Foh another chance. I admit it's pretty good the way it was, until I got to Hell. My FOH is maxed with conviction maxed too, and I rained lighting down on a death mauler since i can't kill it with physical blows. It didn't even take 1/2 of its life away and my sorc friend ( not actually my friend, not in my party) was dropping them like flies with maxed nova and she sed 17 points into lighting mastery! So, Foh should not release crappy holy bolts but release a nova like the sorceress's upon impact. Blizzard should increase Foh's damage to make it 850-1150 damage at lvl 20 and make the nova 150-250 damage and 150% more damage to the undead, all lightning damage. They can leave the 1 second delay on. It might seem too powerful but it's no different than the Sorc's thunderstorm except that nova. In PVP, it's not that powerful considering the 1/2 damage only and lightning resistances of the other players. If a Sorc, can have a lighting bolt form thunderstorm that does up to 2000 damage with lighting mastery, why can't a pally have a Foh that does up to 1150 damage? People also agree that Paladins are the most well rounded and balanced characters with equal combat and magic abilities. Also, notice that other classes have mass kill skills that rack up exp. while the paladin has to hack away slowly with zeal. The barb has whirlwind that kills with 1 swoop, sorcs have orb and nova, necros have minions and bone spear that rips apart anything, amazon has multishot, assassins have traps like lighting sentry, and druids have minions and hurricane, armageddon, vlocano, etc. I would be so happy if Blizzard make Foh release a nova to make it a mass kill tool.
