If you're being one shot by fulminate then you're doing something completely wrong. The best geared mage on my server hit me for 3600, considering I have much more then 3600 HP, I would hardly call that a one shot. L2P bad kid
Pretty high numbers... Close enough to one shotting at times. This is Veev's video by the way, posted on rift game forums.

You should open your eyes when other mages are saying this class needs fixed ASAP. But if you want to do the math, without the red orb buff:

Until then, QQ more, if your going to post pyro videos/ss's , use non red orb dmg.
Flame Bolt - Hit 738, Crit 1107
Fireball - Hit 950, Crit 1428 (plus DoT effect)
Inferno - Hit 1242, Crit 1863
Fulminate - Hit 2617, Crit 3930
Considering it's very easy for Fireball/Inferno/Fulminate to all line up to hit within 1 second of each other, you can still pretty much "1 shot" (or 1 global) people with ease, with or without the buff.
If my sole objective was getting Pyro nerfed I would have made a video without using it at all, but as I said in the description it's more for entertainment than anything else.
