I think it's more like 115%. It seems to hit for silghtly less than charged blast missiles. Either the tool tip is off, or the ability is doing FAR less damage than the tooltip indicates it should be.

Hey guys,

The damage listed in channeled spells is the total damage the spell will do during one full cycle. For example, if you have a weapon that makes you hit once every two seconds, it would take two seconds for the channeled spell to do the full amount of damage listed.

I know this is a little confusing, but it makes sense in practice. Try it out in the Beta and I encourage you to post some feedback in the Beta Feedback forums :)
