I thought 600 +/- complimented by LL would be enough to take a pack down quickly. Looks like it's either a new build or I'm back to kiting.

Since I've been spamming acid cloud all over the place since 1.0.4, I was doubting that only 2 casts stack.
So yesterday evening, I striped my WD of every gear, and equipped her with only a white dagger with AS of 1.8, and a ring with 100 LoH.
On a single target zombie, I spam the acid cloud and let it rest so that I can see the return on the DoT without initial cast interfering.
- Acid rain gets me 800 life per second (4 clouds stacked)
- Slow burn gets me 600+ life per second (more than 5/6 clouds stacked)
- Lob blob bomb gets me only 100 life per second with the 3 blobs out.
So in a nutshell: Acid rain and slow burn do stack proc without limit . Lob Blob Bomb stack up to 3 blobs, but the blobs do not stack proc: they only increase the range of the proc.
11/22/2012 06:28 AMPosted by ZeMickeyyou got 100 because the 3 blob stack, re-check with my first data to confirm.
Oh sorry about that. So then yes, they stack. I might recheck again though.So, you're sure about this data?
Yes I am! I can't be more accurate than this ^_^
It's actually easier to test with a fast attack speed weapon, in order to have the casts together in a short time frame, and then let the effects cool down and see what's really going on. The numbers I indicated were when I did not cast anything during the previous second.Then, the conclusion is, all runes of acid rain do stack proc with one another ? (don't know about the damage though)
At least for he runes I tested (acid rain, slow burn, blob), this is a positive: they do stack without limit.
As for the damage, I did not check during the test, but I am quite certain from experience, that it does not stack.
the amount healed from Leeching Beasts will be reduced from 50% to 10% in Inferno mode
There is still something that bugs me...
Since I realized from these calculations that acid rain might be better for LoH proc AND damage, then I switched it main build instead of slow burn. But now,it feels like the stun/freeze does not proc as often.
Thus, I wonder if the proc rates we found out are only for LoH, and not for other skills like "chance to ..."
For example, I doubt that acid rain will have twice the chance to trigger the stun effect of my gear compared to slow burn...
This is difficult to experiment, unless having a gear that bring to 100% "chance to..." .
