But they aren't. They calculate in all your damage. If I crit w/a SOJ the % vs elites multiples that crit. Which is why I can do massive amounts more damage vs elites with crits, then trash mobs.

Your massive amount more is somewhere around 15% depending on what else you could use besides the SOJ.

What we are really talking about here is the opportunity cost of not using your best ring and replacing it with an SOJ. What is the damage difference between the two rings?

In my case it looks like half the old rings damage is added to elite damage and half the old rings damage is deducted from white damage.

I don't switch gear, so I run how I run, unless I am only fighting ubers and then I will use an SOJ.

I'm not sure if you math is right, I'm not going to take the time to go threw it to be honest. But as I said it's damage across the board so I'm hitting NON crits for well over a 100k in most cases, and..15% ON TOP of what I could do with a CC/CD/INT ring isn't a lot of damage? Lets just say the bonus vs elites some how is 15% then I get another 6% (or in my case 5%) because of the elemental damage so that's 20% across the board which means when I crit for 1m normally I'm critting for 1.2m w/a SOJ. That's insignificant, but with that said some how your math is off. Because I'm critting trash on the upper end up to 900-1m, and I'm critting elites on the upper end 1.5-1.8. These are the numbers I'm seeing. Not some formula, not theory..the real numbers showing up on the screen. I do also have another 6% from my serpent though so I'm @ 34% with my combo

I to don't swap gear. Trash isn't an issue, I want to equalize the trash with the elites.

oh and as I said above. I get in theory 90k dps boost vs elites with 30% vs elits when buffed @ 300k. When I check rings I check top of the line unity with high CD (45+), bonus damage, CC, and 150+ int... They all came in between 45-57 dps boost. Sooo the math is off some where. I will gladly admit that I don't know exactly how SOJ handles it's damage calculation Does the damage vs elites all stack together then multiple, do they each multiple off each other ie if I have 2 damage vs elites items or 3 is the forumla (dmg)(dve1)(dve2)(dve3) or is it (dmg)(dve1+dve2+dve3) these sort of things can make HUGE difference in how it works. Same with how % damage is added. There can be a lot of little tweaks in the internal function that we simply don't know.
