Short Questions Thread

Why is it that when you equip an item with "-50% Target Defense" or "Ignores Target Defense" that your character page hit % doesn't automatically show up as 95%?

Limitation of the engine?

Re: Short Questions Thread

Blood Hatred - does the buff (life on attack, damage bonus, etc) last the entire duration? In other words, if I BH something (charge it fully) and then quickly swap to a different skill, will my attacks grant me health on attack for the entire 4+ seconds? And how many hits does it take to charge BH ...

How does one summon the butcher nowadays? It used to be black marsh... the Doc says tristram but I've tried to summon him there and it doesn't work.

Re: Short Questions Thread

Modifiers such as "Target takes additional damage of X"- Does this trigger on every 'hit'? For instance, every instance of a skill such as stormblast or deathgaze AND the procs that these abilities generate? Much dumber question - Are throw abilities 100% hit or dependent on AR like melee ...

Re: Short Questions Thread

I'm curious if there's any actual benefit to dual wielding as a barb as opposed to running a 2h axe. It seems to me that damage per second is less and the only real benefit is slightly increased stats and perhaps more attacks per second if you're somehow running a proc-based build.

Is There Any Reason To Dual Wield VS 2h?

As the topic states, I'm curious if there's any actual benefit to dual wielding as a barb as opposed to running a 2h axe.

Re: Holy Melee Paladin Viable?

The short answer: No. Damn. My other choice was a barb, I guess I'll go that route. Speaking of which, dumb question - if you're using a skill that requires a sword (Stormblast, for instance), and you're dual wielding a sword and an axe, would you be doing less damage than if you were DW two swords?

Re: Holy Melee Paladin Viable?

What you are looking for is probably a retaliate pala. Works fine to farm, survival is great but single target damage is lacking for most charms you will respec to a better boss killer (Hailstorm ftw!) but when you have that gear you get nearly all charms in one setting. I've already noticed the si...

Holy Melee Paladin Viable?

To make this brief - I haven't played MXL in a few years and obv much has changed. I don't see a single physical-based melee holy pala guide at all on the forums (Maybe I'm blind?). Is this playstyle viable? I know it would be fairly tanky but as I'm looking through the combat abilities I'm clearly ...
