Xis Runewords, after looking at the Runewords doc, seem to only work when paired with the original runes (El through Zod). None of the Median runes, anything higher than Zod, have any Xis runewords. https://docs.median-xl.com/doc/items/runewords if you want to see what can be turned into a Xis runeword

ChuckNoRis wrote:sorry , i wrote it the wrong way :facepalm: . i got a severe headake from the drinks i had last night . you must charm Lucion . Malic kills Lucion while Lucion is under the effect of Charm , as while charm effect is on , Lucion is considered an opponent by Malic .

are Lucion and Malic close enough to eachother ? it could be that Malic is too busy casting his spells in your direction and Lucion is not in the aoe of his spells to take damage . if that happens , make sure to lure Lucion close to you and charm him when both of you are in Malic's direction . when Malic casts his spell you run away to avoid it , while Lucion will stay there in the spell path and take the hit .


That is really strange then... I've done that uber multiple times in past patches and his life always went down using the exact method you described. I must've had some rare glitched instance or something. I tried re-equiping book too. Oh well, I'll probably give it another go later this week. Thanks for the reply!

Wouldn't I benefit more from MO'ing %enhanced damage on the sword than from %enhanced weapon damage?
Isn't everything calculated off of the damage on the weapon making this more significant?


Can anyone help?

Always always always put enhanced damage above enhanced weapon damage. No matter what the situation is, you will be getting more damage with enhanced damage.

Anyone know what is meant by "50% less Storm Crow Knives Lost When Hit" on

My first thought is that it allows half the storm crow knives to continue through an enemy, hitting another or homing back and hitting twice. Is this correct?

When you haven't been hit by an enemy for a little bit, Storm Crow throws extra knives. However when you get hit you lose those extra knives and only throw the base amount. This just basically halves the knives you lose when you get hit.

Wouldn't a harbinger build benefit a whole lot from orbing attack speed on Maleficence, since harbinger only benefits from attack speed on weapon? (also Maleficence already has 200% ED on it so enhanced damage orbs wouldn't do anything)
