In patch 2.4, the Firebird set has received a damage boost in the form of +25% damage per burning enemy. But Tal Rasha's also received a boost, now adding +500% damage per stack. This seems horribly unbalanced: Even if I average 20 burning monsters at a time - and that seems like a lot, given how quickly white mobs die - I get damage bonus equivalent to a single Tal Rasha stack, and when I play with Tal Rasha I rarely have less than 3 stacks active (plus 2.4 made it easier to keep up 4 Tal Rasha stacks anyway).
I confirmed this with my own gameplay, the damage output difference was immense. Now, granted, my overall gear when running Tal Rasha's is of higher quality, but the difference was like two orders of magnitude.
Am I missing something here? Is there a way to make Firebird more competitive? As a hardcore player the extra life it provides is very appealing, but it's just not worth the huge damage loss.
