suchbalance wrote:Nice guide. I just want to clarify that the Energy damage bonus on the tooltip is correct.

War Cry has less energy scaling than normal spells because it's a shout not a classic spell and also to prevent reaching the damage cap on a crit.


Thank you for this information, i will be changing my guide up to correct my assumptions i made about the tooltip being bugged potentially.


With this information in mind what about trying to scale the Spell Damage with Str Factor instead? Ive found a few items like a belt with Str Factor Scaling on it and was wondering about a good use for such on a barb possibly.. What do you think about that? Would that make it possible to scale str for max spell damage scaling instead?


Strength factor definitely will be a viable option but you will start to run into mana problems , mana cost is 350 with a 7 fpa cast speed means you would have to get mana regen in several spots to have the gameplay feel good. Sur runes in weapons and mana regen on jewelery in all slots. That being said the gearing wouldnt be that different. You would go

for weapons w/ sur runes most likely.

This also means you could get minions and get the shamanic trances buff of 5 Str factor per base point in the summon tree. id assume you would have close to 700 Str factor quite easily meaning you would only need 3500ish str to cap your damage. Allowing you to put more points into vita i suppose. I can go ahead and test this myself and post a video if you are interested in seeing it in action. I just feel like stacking energy is way more beginner friendly and most likely will still be a higher dmg output then using dual weild
