in other words where can you find out what all spells are considered physical/magic spells?

For example is the Paladin's skill "Vessel of Justice" a magic spell? And what the heck is a physical spell?

TIA

Here is alot of good information on "spell damage"
Vessel is a spell iirc

1.) It's a physical spell. (Skill icon will say "SPELL" and then in that instance, it also says "PHYSICAL DAMAGE: xx-xx"
2.) A spell that does physical damage.

tl;dr a skill that scales as a spell (gains spell damage, energy factor, etc) but doesn't use your weapon's damage. It's the same as a fire spell or poison spell, but physical damage.


Thank you for your answers. Seems I've found just what I needed. A full list of the type of spell for all spells.

It looks to be out of date, but should cover most of what's needed.

Is there a reason why an Assassin doesn't need keys to open locked chests?

SP, I'm specced into Shadow Refuge, Tieflining & Perfect being. I tried disabling Tiefling, but doesn't seem to change anything

They can pick locks since 2001.

Wasnt clear in my last post, Draco was saying about calculating cast speed break points, but didnt know if prev poster was using Tiefling, since it no longer morphs, cast rate isnt affected. :)

Can someone pls tell me the nr for a shortcut key? First paste %appdata%\MedianXL\save in the addressbar and open preferences.json with notepad and look at "hotkey_escmenu": X and tell me what X is. I wanted to change it and i can't bind Esc back to any key because pressing it just cancels the binding action. Thank you in advance.

Hey guys, returning player,
Unfortunately the miniguide from chuck norris hasnt been updated for sigma it seems.
I used to love his topic because it had a specific "fun" attribute he gave to every build.
And I really like to play fun builds above all else

Does anyone has the time and knowledge to tell me which effective builds in today's version of the game seem like the most fun to play ?
Thanks !

yes thanks I already checked this section out, but I lack a general view of the builds.
I'm sure lots of fun builds dont have their miniguide yet.
I'm working on a summon necro for now, following the miniguide, it's fine to play but I know I'm gonna get bored pretty fast because of summons gameplay which I don't really like (I used to play summon barb last year, it was ok because very effective but I really didnt enjoy playing it).
I'm more inclined to play direct damage builds, can you point me to any direction for a build that might be fun to play, effective enough so I can aim for most content while still an at least average farmer experience (as a mostly first character playthrough) ?

Thanks for your time!

almost all builds you can think of are fun up to early Hell , around level 105-110 .

from that point onwards , it depends a lot on how well they can do with crap gear t4 uniques/crafts/runewords up to On ,or how well can you twink better gear in order to smash the next ubers .

overall , the higher you level , the less fun it becomes imo .

Sigma isn't the same as the older median versions when you could play 1 or 2 builds per day from early to end game . You now need to invest a lot of time into grinding for better gear/farming and leveling if you want to complete all ubers , which most of the time tends to get boring .


my 2 cents
