DoT DPS for Elemental Nova seems buggy

So the setup is pretty simple - a lvl 7 mage, no investments in passives, no specialized skills, no items.
Then we equip a silver wand with no affixes and a silver wand with +24% chance to ignite on hit suffix.

Lightning Blast / Fireball / Elemental Nova values in game are (respectively):

  • no affixes: 45 / 50 / 36
  • with ignite affix: 59 / 63 / 52

More precise DPS values in my calculations are (once again respectively)

  • no affixes: 44.85 / 49.59 / 36.23
  • with ignite affix: 58.64 / 63.39 / 50.01

This affix basically adds Ignite damage equal to
35 * 1.12 * 0.24 = 9.41 ( 24% chance to apply, 12% increased damage from 3 int)
Multiplied by attack speed of 1.47 (it’s the same for all these skills) we get ignite DPS = 13.8

The question is - what’s up with Elemental nova? Having a wand with % ignite affix equipped increases its DPS by 16. Looks like a bug somewhere, or I’m just missing something.

Thanks for the report.
