Default Lvl12 magician aoe spell : Column of fire

Hello,

on P99, the spell Column of Fire (lvl12 aoe mage spells) hits 4 targets only.

Shouldn't he hit the same numbers of target than AoE (non quad) spells ? wich is 25 on P99 ?

Thank you

It seems that all the targetted AoE mage spells only hit 4 targets. The pbaoe hit <=25 targets but not the targetted AE.

In the spell's description, it says "all targets", "several targets in the vicinty" etc...
Is there a reason ?

Ty

I think there is a difference between quadding spells (wiz/druid) and the mage aoe rain spells.

A quadding spell is clairly defined, by example :
Wizard lvl16 : http://wiki.project1999.com/Pillar_of_Fire
Creates a pillar of fire, causing between 68 and 76 damage to at most 4 creatures in the vicinity of your target. This is a wizard's second quad kiting spell.

Druid lvl5 : http://wiki.project1999.com/Invoke_Lightning
Calls down lightning from the sky, causing damage to your target and up to 3 others nearby.

Now, why in mage AoE spells desc, there is no mention about the fact it only hits 4 targets ?

Lvl12 http://wiki.project1999.com/Column_of_Fire
Conjures a column of fire that burns several creatures in the vicinity of your target, causing between 49 and 51 damage.

Lvl12 http://wiki.project1999.com/Rain_of_Blades
Conjures a rain of blades that assaults all creatures in the vicinity of your target, causing three waves of between 26 and @1 damage.

I've made a lot of tests, the PBAoE spells are the only ones that can hit up to 25 targets.

Sadly you can't trust the spell descriptions.

Target AoEs can hit 4 or 5 creatures (depending on the specific spell).

Point blank AoEs will hit everything in range (well, up to 25 creatures on this server).

Rains will hit up to 3 mobs per wave and do up to 3 waves. There is a maximum number of hits that a rain can generate too. I can't remember what that figure is though.

These are not bugs, they are working as they did on live at this time. The error is in the descriptions, not the mechanics.
