He is good for normal game, not good for end game I guess. Both his Fire and Poison spells are awfully slow, take forever to hit enemies. So he can't be as great damage dealer as abujer.
But among 3 mage in act3, he is the most capable mers to proc "on kill" effects. But I have seen no effort to make this work. Still, I think unless there are some buff to Punisher moving speed, then he won't be as great as Abujer.
