Lightning nerfed?

Just created my first 1.11 sorceress. I noticed that level 1 lightning does 1-40 now (not 1-43), the same as chain lightning.

Synergies?
No actually the damage stated at Arreat Summit says, base damage of Lightning is 1-43. BUT i dont know if arreat summit is stating this correctly, or if they really did nerf the damage a bit. Can't remember from 1.10 what the base damage was, that's displayed in the skilltree.

Anyone remember?

Arreat summit includes 1 point in any prerequirements for a skill so synergies will add into their numbers.

I would link you to a much better skill planner but I can't as it is against forum rules to link to it as it is on a competing site, and a pay for items site.

Here is my hint to you. Google a nacho dip recipe you know what I mean the "chippy dips" recipe. There you can feast on recipe information to your hearts content.

Lightning has always been 1-40 for the first skill point without having synergies. So +1 lightning on a staff would give you a 1-40 lightning skill.
