Corpse explosion did not scale that way in Diablo 2 either. Stop spreading misinformation and looking stupid.
04/23/2012 10:26 AMPosted by G3pwoodWe're talking about the explosion effect right? Of course that scales with monster health, its damage is entirely 100% based on monster health. And it has to scale with number of players because we all know monster health is greater the more number of players are in the game.
Yeah, except they actually tested it over at incgamers and it doesn't work that way. It does damage based on the health of a monster in a 1 player game. Works out to something like 9.2% monster health in damage in a 4 player game.
I am curious as to the this test performed by incgamers. Can you post the link to their test and how they came up with it?
I too would agree with the tooltip. 30% is 30% and it would seem that with more players the mobs health goes up and with this the 30% increases.
A link to the post would be a great help thank you.
Thanks for the post. I read the party where they said tested but they didn't give any examples of how they tested it or the outcomes of the test.
I am more inclined to believe them but i am going to go home today and try it myself. I will EP a zombie and see the AOE damage in a single player game, then i'll get friends online and will try it again and see if the damage is the same.
If the explosive damage doesn't change then we know that the % to life is based on the original and not the bonus.
Now you're making me wonder...Does Exploding Palm benefit from percentage damage increases? In particular, does it benefit from Dexterity? If we were to get a few hundred Dex, could we boost that 30% monster life to over 100% monster life?
Another thing to test after I level a new monk...
One thing that's actually pretty good with it, (even if it didn't scale that well) is the fact that it has no cooldown, so you can apply it to more than a single enemy and blow them both up at once. I think that's why for anyone who is seriously considering using this ability, Impending Doom will be necessary.
