Gas Grenades vs Cluster Grenades

Can someone who's better at math clue me in on what's the best option between these two in terms of DPS?

Also, can anyone explain if/how the DOT on Gas Grenades stacks?

Lastly, what's the better option between these two if I want to maximize my LOH?

Thank you in advance!

Gas Grenades can be better for SUSTAINED LoH sources.

Cluster is better though if you want them to be QUICK. Since Cluster has a higher proc coefficient, it heals higher than GAS GRENADES because it was nerfed.

Though with enough STACKS of the Gas cloud from GAS GRENADES, it will out perform Cluster by a margin.

Cluster Grenades can multi hit big monsters too and same goes for Gas Grenades but Cluster has higher chance in doing so.

Cluster also is better in terms of Critical hits in fast successions, but once you stack those Gas Clouds, again, they'll out perform Cluster in that manner.

My bet is on Gas Grenades for over all sustain, but people prefer that instant LoH/LS from Cluster though.

What I liked the most with Gas Grenades is that it can indeed stack. and if you have Chance to STUN or whatnot, it'll proc it QUITE regularly.

Out of topic but, if you are using Marked for Death : Mortal Enemy Rune, Gas grenades will proc it 2 times, 1 for the initial explosion of the grenade, and another for the gas cloud it leaves.

After a while ,they stack and would produce at least 9 and more, I THINK, since the clouds stack and you continually lay them and the explosions too.

Thanks for the reply. I basically just stand there, let mobs stand in a circle around me and beat on my head while I chuck grenades at them, so looks like I may get a little more out of gas grenades.

Interesting note on Marked for Death. I wish I had another skill spot available to take advantage of that so I can drop more Spike Traps without running out of hatred.

use a calamity bow .... has MFD built into the bow... and don't have to waste a skill slot for MFD

You have plenty of HP and Armor and RA losing some LoH on the danetta wouldn't kill ya

I was using a danetta on my tank build .. now use calamity because I get the MFD skill baked into it as well as it has hatred regen... :)

It will affect some your dex/vit though as you don't typically find that on a OS calamity.

The Calamity proc of MFD doesn't have MORTAL ENEMY on it. It's the main reason why I've even suggested it ;)
