Elemental exposure + legacy triumvirate

I read in here that legacy triumvirate applies 3 elemental dmg to your weapon, and would therefore count towards Elemental exposure debuff. Has this been confirmed?

Thanks ^^

No. They do not. Those damages are applied to the black damage. The element are based soley on your spell. Even if you wep say 800-1000 lightning damage and you cast frozen orb with your legacy trium, it does cold damage.

But it says in the description that elemental dmg from your weapon counts towards Elemental exposure. So in your example, you would get 2 stacks, lightning and cold?

Do we still have black dmg anyway?

Thanks for the help!

hmmm didnt notice the last line about elemental dmg from wep. I was assuming based on procs like cold blooded and conflagration. yes we still have black. Am using one.

I'll assume it works then, with a black weapon.

I would really like clarification on this as well, I found a lvl70 triumvirate so it would be good to know how to utilise it.

Yeah, my weapon says 1000-1178 arcane damage, so i'm wondering if that procs elemental exposure too when i cast anything, guess we need some clarification. Otherwise i've been missing one element all along. :(

Works with elements on weapon, doesn't work with legacy elemental affixes.
And the new Triumvirate does something else entirely.

Is the old triumvirate completely OP compared to new rare items? Can't find anything that is an upgrade because the weapon being used with it is black damage.

I replaced my Triumvirate with an offhand I found on a vendor in the Act V main town. I'll miss my trusty Triumvirate, but it's wonderful to be able to use any weapon instead of needing to use a black weapon.

As a side note - make sure to check the vendors - it seems that they can sell max level rares now without restrictions (unlike the level 59s that vanilla vendors sold).

i actually tested it today, and the legacy %elemental with black weapon doesnt proc elemental exposure.... its strange as it an element applied to weapon damage so according to description it should.

i used a legacy crow with min>max damage weapon/jewelry. the damage increase in the second magic missile was just 5% not 10% (5 from arcane and 5 from lightning) but the fireball proc did count.

Cool! Thanks! The tooltip does read elemental damage from your weapon so it makes sense.

I wondered about this as well. Do keep in mind though that Physical damage spells carry over the elemental damage of your weapon, meaning a weapon with 1000 cold damage and 200 black damage will do mostly cold damage and some physical damage. Are we sure that using a cold spell with fire damage on a weapon would trigger the fire and cold damage?

For the wizard passive elemental exposure, yes, we are absolutely sure. The attack will still be 100% cold damage and will not proc conflagration.
