Did I mention it also has a lot more range?

Zap!
Cost: 45/50/55/60/65 mana
Range: 1450
Damage: 30/75/120/165/210 (+140% AD)
Slow: 30/40/50/60/70% for 2 seconds
Other: Reveals any hit champions.

Mystic Shot
Cost: 28/31/34/37/40 mana
Range: 1150
Damage: 35/55/75/95/115 (+100% AD) (+20% AP)

Is Ezreal not THE skill-shot ADC? And btw, Mystic Shot doesn't reveal hit champions. So why is Zap! doing more damage, slowing, AND revealing enemy champions when Mystic Shot doesn't? Seems to me that Riot forgot to balance Jinx with the other ADCs.

Doesn't Mystic shot have a shorter cooldown and no warning when it's cast?

Because
1. it's on a way longer cd.
2. it costs more mana.
3. it shows the enemies the projectile range.
4. she doesn't have a blink.

Mystic shot is a much lower CD, applies on hit effects, doesnt have a wind up, and doesnt give off a huge particle that says IM SHOOTING THIS DIRECTION.

If anything you should complain that it hits almost as hard as Varus Q, has a lower cooldown, goes farther, and has less wind up than it.

These reasons right here.

This has been discussed a lot already, its widely considered that her zap is the only thing really out of control about her right now. But you also forgot to consider mana cost and stat differences, however even then, I think zap is a little much. It is alread up for nerfs on pbe so hang in there.

They're barely comparable as skillshots, let alone damage tools. Plus in the playstyle: Ezreal's Mystic Shot is a ton of his damage. Zap! is what you use when the dude can't dodge the damn hit as a nuke.

Lower mana cost, no wind up, lower cooldown, all cooldowns reduced by 1 every hit.

Yeah, I guess all skillshots are the same thing.

I'm not going to argue the balance of Zap!, but to compare it to Mystic Shot is dumb.

Except mystic shot has a 2 second or less cd lategame, applies on-hit effects, reduces cooldowns, casts instantly, and costs way less mana
