Diablo® III

Ultimate dps SNS?

I tried Mammoth many times before, it never worked so well. The path of fire was uncontrollable, and it took too long to form a new path. The fire path was narrow too, so you deal less AoE damage compared to MW. Mammoth is not that great.

Ok wait... Regarding Conflag...

There needs to be some definitive clearing up. Doesn't conflag only work like this: Enemies who are receiving fire dmg receive additional 10% dmg from any attack from the conflag player? This means you can't simply be wearing firewalkers, you would need the walkers to be inflicting fire dmg for the enemies to be affected by the conflag passive, no? I.e. it will work for units in melee range being hurt by the boots, but for ranged units not being burnt by the boots, these ones don't feel affects of conflag

And fire on chant's wand, can someone say once and for all with evidence whether it works with conflag as a general 10% dmg boost to any spell? I guess you could grab 2 identical DPS 1handers, one +fire, one black dmg or other dmg only. Some test where the only variable is the weapon's fire dmg/no fire dmg

yeah i tried mammoth hydra today, the fire path sucks balls, might be viable if it had a cone like frost hydra but it blows, ultimate dps is probably still meteor or using mw-electrify

I'm extremely sure that chant's wand will NOT proc conflag unless you use spectral blades or you make a white attack.

The easiest way to test is to get a cold weapon, and drop a WW. If the mob gets chilled, then it should work with fire+conflag. I'm willing to bet the mob will not get chilled.

^OK that's great t hear, that's what I thought. Because conflag should only work for spells that have a dmg type of fire... so yeah it makes sense only 'white' attack would convert to fire dmg from fire weap, not arcane spell dmg or cold for example

Would explosive blast work like blades tho and make conflag work with +fire weap? Or is EB not 'white' dmg

No, EB is physical, which is still one of the elemental types. Spectral Blades, to compare, has no damage type at all.

EDIT: one thought just occured to me. What about the prof from Hellfire ring? Has anyone tried that with conflag? I imagine it would proc a decent amount in the build, but I haven't rolled one with IAS yet to try.

unless you have 60critical or more, there's no way bone chill will be better than deep freeze. 5the sheet dps is higher by easily more than 15%. nevermind the reduced cooldowns. its only valid against ubers or boss fight record breaking
