Kitsune wrote:I find it odd the druid bow set utilizes a dex bow as opposed to a druid only bow for the druid bow set, kind of got me unsure about which is best. Druid bow scales 30/100 damage with str. and dex scales 20/100, so... but maxing str just leaves you with no dex to hit things.


The Druid set bow actually has better strength scaling than regular Druid bows, on top of dex scaling. I think you still go str for damage.

What is a good way to get life back as a summoner barbarian ? The life per second on items seems really bad.

On the Assassin skill Shadow Refuge, can someone explain to me what the line:

Physical Damage: XXX% to Attack

means?

The rest of it makes sense, but I don't see any noticeable change to my other skills apart from the defense/move when I'm using the buff.

So Arcains Valor claims to boots your vit by 50% of your "total character defense" does this refer to the stat "total character defense" or am I to understand that if I have 1 mil armor it will give me 500k vit? I assume it is literal and refers to the stat "total character defense" because of how absurd 500k vit would be, but I'd still like clarification. Thanks!

Pierce effect:
Vs mobs (35% res):
No pierce = 65% dmg dealt,
65 pierce = 130% dmg dealt (x2 base dmg)
135 pierce = 200% dmg dealt. (x3 base dmg, x1,5 dmg gain)

Vs bosses (70% res):
No pierce = 30% dmg dealt.
30 pierce = 60% dmg dealt (x2 total dmg)
90 pierce = 120% dmg dealt (x4 total dmg, 2x total dmg gain)
170 pierce = 200% dmg dealt (x6,67 base dmg, x1,67 total dmg gain)
