OP just so you know Ice Comet does more dmg as a single attack ( numbers ), however in reality it does less dmg than Shooting Star for 2 reasons
Shooting star does :
1. Fire damage instead of ice damage Fire>Ice
2. The damage increases the more people it hits ( now keep in mind there are AoE caps, but it still means that it does more damage ).
Thank you everyone for these replies. I understand the utility of a Storm Atronach, but also hoped that the Storm Atronach Zap could pull high damage and help more with soloing difficult bosses. Guess not though compared to Meteor.
@FriedEggSandwich I hate Overload so much. So many different bugs and it's a must-use ultimate for Sorcs in plenty of group content or you get looked at weird.
EDIT: Why not just make the toggle from Overload charge your basic attacks? So on every light (or heavy attack) it blasts an Overload Light Attack (or Heavy AoE DoT) when using normal staff blasts/sword swings at your enemy. No need to switch bars, no third bar, no super buggy issues. Damage and ultimate cost can be adjusted to match the speed of light attacks. Just off the top of my head. Seems ZOS will never fix bugs so why not redo the skill?
