So, I console-leveled a wiz to max and invested into arcane skill to see how powerful scrolls get.
They get really powerful.
With stats 18/8/13/14/18/8 and 24 arcana
Scroll of Insect Swarm - 26 Raw dmg every 3 sec for ~84 sec / 760 total (flavor text says piercing, but does raw)
Scroll of Plague of Insects - 31 Raw every 3 sec for 80s / 866 total
Scroll of Crackling Lightning - 115-155 dmg
Scroll of Shining Beacon - 56 burn dmg every 3 sec for 24 sec
Scroll of Minoletta's Concussive Missiles: 14 projectiles, 24-31 dmg and 16-19 aoe
All have 84 accuracy, so even with Graze due to their duration it's a lot of dmg.
A very nice change from PoE1 Melee classes with these can become super cool.
