Yeah... and then I take Icy Terrain and Color Spray for my encounters. So I'm not the best warmage I could be. On the other hand, I still hit a lot, and those are great debuffs. Especially when I mini-nova and use both of them with an AP.A tiefling wizard with hellfire blood! That's a warmage build, you're violating all the established 'CharOp' conventions!
Yes that's a dig against the CharOp conventions, firewizard for the win.
And Scorching Burst is always fun...
