Blade Vortex

Good skill but now looks worse even with 10 stacks... and maybe dps/duration could be higher imo

The base duration is 5 seconds and the base hit rate is 0.6 seconds. A single blade at level 1 will hit 8 times before it expires.

The blade doesn't actually rotate through mobs, it just hits everything within the AOE all at once. Each mob can receive a different amount of damage but they all count as a single hit, similar to Ice Nova, or Dark Pact, or Righteous Fire.

If we replace the base duration of 5 seconds with a base durability of 8HP and make the blade lose 1HP per hit, it will do the same amount of damage over the same period of time.

If we then apply all duration bonuses to the base durability of all blades in a stack and add a 35% durability bonus per blade to offset the increased hit rate per blade, the skill should scale exactly as it does now accept that the blades will only wear out as they do damage and we won't have to keep spamming new blades out of combat.

I like this idea, a lot.
Why it has less aoe than cyclone now? What is a melee skill, a what is a spell?)
Can the "Blade Vortex" skillgem, gets the possibility that while it is castet there is no cooldown for the existing blades? this would be nice.
as well the Duration and castspeed are Pretty low Right now without imense scaling, so the damagescaling is also slow.

kind regards

BV is broken since Unleash release.
For the cost of one support gem we getting 100% uptime of 10 stacks BV all the time.
Duration management mechanics is now missing.
The skill would feel a whole lot better if every cast refreshed all the blade's duration, right now it's basically unfun to play without unleash support
Is it possible to play pure phys BV now? or after ggg gave all mobs armor and gave overwhelm phys reduction only to melee builds - it's impossible?
