i have started a balance wizard and am up to lvl 31 at this point. while playing i got to wondering, do the balance spells that actually use fire, ice, or storm magics still get the boost from my balance gear that provides additional damage to balance. i know that i could just case the spells on any low lvl monster and then remove the gear and do it again but was just curious about it.
Well since I had no idea, I did exactly as you proposed.
I had my wife's balance character equip a piece of +damage balance gear.
Awesome looking feather mask look for her character btw . . .

462 . . . here's the card:
Yup, that's more . . . well, let's go to Excel and check the math:
Yup, balance gear does affect spectral blast damage.
SO, when spectral blast leaves your hands it's balance damage and when spectral blast hits your target it changes into elemental damage. Cool cool. Good to know.
Thanks for the question!
