What?!? There's nothing wrong with this!
When can I get rid of scorching burst??

Seriously... What's wrong with this? It's probably what a Controller at-will should be? Scorching Burst is weak... so we can't compare the two.

1) Its psychic, not fire
2) It targets enemies
3) It has a control effect

One is no big deal, but slightly better. Nothing currently has psychic resistance.
Two or three both make is superior to scorching burst which is no big deal. The fact that it is all three means it destroys an existing at will in all ways across the board. I have already read complaints about it on the boards.

I am not saying you can't take it at some point. I am saying you can't take it right now. I won't prevent you guys from taking anything in core books. Those are heavily tested and they are properly errat'd. Dragon articles get pulled all the time for being overpowered or just full of errors because they aren't tested or reviewed properly.

You probably want to keep scorching burst for the combination effect with Darkeye's clinging fire attack, so you can do bursts of +45 damage per round on groups of 9 foes.

Has this been updated at all? Or is winged horde still off limits?

Too far the other way... in my opinion. I'll stick with SB for it's minion killing and a default std if nothing else comes to mind.

I am going to probably swap out magic missile for thunderwave at this level... thoughts?

Thunderwave or Winged Horde are arguably consided the best at wills. Long discussion on both, mostly Winged Horde found here:

http://community.wizards.com/go/thread/view/75882/22244525/Winged_Hordes_goes_live_(Jan_19th)_with_no_changes!?pg=6

The amount of buffing that can be done to these spells via feats/items is scarry...

So, as per the March update... Winged Horde should now look like this:

Winged Horde Wizard Attack 1
A horde of flesh-devouring sprites appear in your foes’ minds. They shriek in fear and swat at this menace, leaving them unable to react to your allies’ maneuvers.
At-Will ✦ Arcane, Implement, Psychic
Standard Action Area burst 1 within 10
Target: Each enemy in burst
Attack: Intelligence vs. Will
Hit: 1d6 psychic damage, and the target cannot take opportunity actions until the end of your
next turn.
Level 21: 2d6 psychic damage.

Are you ok with this version in the game Don?

thank you,

Mike

If you are ok with Winged Horde... I will most likely trade it for Scorching Burst.
