V Mage is too powerful in the endgame.

With fast cast and Mana Storm, a CL 50 mage does nearly 700 damage per turn, including a 13% fail rate. This is more than any other class, except for a Ranger with Holy Might, or a warrior with an uber-weapon (like, say, Deathwreaker.)

Suggestion: tone down mana storm (in both mana cost and damage) so it maxes out at maybe 500 average damage per turn. That is still pretty high, but not ridiculously so. Mage shouldn't be doing that kind of damage, given how well he can control the battlefield.

I just killed morgoth using 2 !restore mana and 2 !healing. and a couple CCW for stunning. That is pretty ridiculous.
