New Gardens Tier 8 Codex

I wanted to see other DPS Druids opinions on it. I felt the codex may have taken a step back. From tier 7 to Tier 8, it loses the lightning bonus and only keeps the storm touch. Also the skill itself does 7k divine damage to a single target, while the mages have 1k less but is aoe and has the target hit with a wounding divine dmg of 1k for a duration of 15 seconds. Logically speaking, since druids are known for their wounding skills as strangling vines and stinging swarm shouldn't we have had something similar versus a small magic lure for a short period.

The offhand skill is fine. I thought the loss of lightning strike was only a description bug also.

Has someone tested this?
I would hate to T8 and learn this too late.

Even if you lose 300 lightning damage or whatever the skill makes up for that and then some. Not to mention the magic lure boosts skills damage too. If your not gonna upgrade to t8 simply because you lose a tiny amount of lightning damage your crazy o.o

The loss of strike is a description error. Tadaaah confirmed this. The mini-lure lasts 15 seconds.

Description says only 5 seconds. Another bug?
