Qarak's will looks very powerful but does anyone know the specific values of the proc abilities? For example, lvl 36 bloodlust, is that like +50% physical damage, +200%? Similarly for spike nova and pentagram. Also, is the 50-100% bonus damage to bloodlust additive or multiplicative to the base lvl36?

Can someone pls explain how %ed cap works on xbow. It's capped at 200% afaik.
For example if my Bow has 150% + 6 Jah 90% - I already got more than 200.
Or is it usefull to MO ed?

Mystic orbs cant bring an item over 200%, but other things (runes, runeword bonuses) can make an item go over 200%

Ty for your answer!
And how does enhanced weapon Dmg work or add to dmg? Is there a cap? For example if I wear Rebel i get 200%EWD.

All EWD you get is one big multiplier, as in all sources of it are additive with each other.

EWD% on gear, dmg bonus from attributes, %damage to specific family etc etc all is just added together and then used to multiply your damage

. It's seems like mana "steal" doesn't work on Widowmaker. What do you suggest? I do have jewel's with mana%&life% steal, but as I said, it seems that it doesn't work. Or do I have to stick with Stillwater till endgame gear??

@Zabza

-mana steal does work on widowmaker but only on the physical damage portion, which is only 20% of the damage output. You can use a 100% physical damage skill like death shard or flametail shot to leech mana, or continue to use Stillwater until you get a hwanins. Alternatively you can respec to have widowmaker at lvl 1, which costs much less mana, until you find other mana leech solutions

-Achilios' will be good for you in the mid game, but runewords are reasonably cheap and eventually you will want to find a hwanins for farming. Since you're only missing 1 piece, I'd recommend trying to buy that piece on the forums for AC while you farm endgame gear, because by the time you find that last piece organically, you will probably want something better

hope that helps

Like Bonespear said, Widowmaker converts 80% of physical damage to magic. This means your leech only works on the 20% that remains physical.

Due to this, you wanna get some physical WDM procs (Bear claw quiver, Hwanin's hwacha crossbow etc)

No, it won't work. Only life/mana on striking works with projectiles(and leech, but widowmaker has a lot of its damage converted to magic so leech won't be very effective).
