Poison spell damage doesn't increase your poison weapon damage. Whirlwind gets away with it because of a bug in Diablo II that hasn't been fixed in Median, but Javazon is all projectiles so that bug doesn't apply here (except potentially on Impale, but I don't know how much WDM the actual melee attack part carries or if it's only the invisible projectiles that are 180%).

There is, however, a different bug that makes it increase your character sheet page 1 tooltip anyway. Page 2 is correct (but gives DPS, not total damage over the full poison length).

I would prefer +all attributes jewels to meet strength/dexterity requirements easier and get some more vitality, since if you don't care about physical damage you can just go full vita and 0 dex and still get 50% block because the passives are cool like that.

It does indeed. It's not called the lying character sheet for nothing; that stuff doesn't actually affect your damage except on direct melee hits - normal attack, and the normal attack component of impale (I don't know if it's at 100% or 180% WDM).

Hi,

Thanks for this great guide.
I only very recently started again on sp. Will sometimes play with a friend (tcpip games). Call it nostalgia or an (almost) mid-life crisis :-D
He is playing this build and enjoying it a lot!

Suppose we want to do some end-game farming in the future, possibly trying to get to higher lab levels: what would be a good build for me to play alongside his javazon? The javazon looks fun, but that would mean we both need the same drops unless we mix poison and physical.

I started an UHM because it also seemed fun to play. I don’t mind buffing every 30 seconds but would rather not constantly switch offensive skills.

We both are quite casual and will slowly but surely level/grind for gear. Since we both have the usual parental responsibilities, our overlapping play time is limited so a lot will be done on our own.

I could recommend Vikan's Lightning Sorc guide for you to play, can find that here: viewtopic.php?f=40&t=65262

Added midgame physical section for 2.2.

P.S. I only just now subscribed to the topic, so I can better answer questions that I may have missed earlier on, as long as Siosilvar doesn't manage to do it before me. :flip:

We'll definitely want the eviscerate relic. +2 projectiles is insane. The impale relic seems meh.
