Diablo® III

Cannoneer FTW?

getting 9.8x sheet DPS multipliers on gohm (vs 8.25 SNS) and it seems to proc ap/cooldowns., well stay fuller.

I guess old problem remains like with bubbles or electrify. You really wanna give up teleport?

I guess you guys on the high end, with the kind of mitigation you have that can stand on pratically on anything, with 3.00 + ias to easily freeze running ranged elites you could drop teleport, especially if you get a lacunis to have the extra movement speed.

For MP10 the extra damage will make a good diference, for lowers MP's teleport mobility is better.

For people whos starting and have crappy gear (me) teleport is indispensable to escape multiple arcanes, freezes, chase those damm fat sorceres and etc..

Indeed I used fracture forever when i was weaker. Best damage mitigation in the game IMO. basically ~70% chance to dodge if you kite right and you feel like a ninja. Ur making all the right moves bro.

I have just dome some testing and its not working, increased from 7.8x to a max of 8.1x , also its not proccing LoH so no extra procs from it:

Its 20% weapon dps on hit and it hits 2 times per second, so its only a 40% weapon dps which should be only a 0,4 extra multiplier.

The best use of Cannoneer is in a build with Arcane Torrent Disruption and Arcane Hydra. Disruption makes enemies take 15% more Arcane damage.

how does it compare to say, sparkflint? Multiplied by your pre-buff sheet damage.

I mean
8.25 with no buff
vs
1.12*8.25 = 9.24 multiplier with flat 12% buff
not even counting sparkflint's projectiles
... and btw, single target sparkflint should do the same damage as single target cannoneer

Of course vs groups it is a lot harder to measure, and cannoneer would be better... but electrify is most likely a better multarget buff, since it buffs base damage by 10% and then adds from there.

Same here... I have no idea how u got from 8.25 to 9.8 multiplier. And also it doesn't proc any LoH nor CM.

gohm 90sec

138.5m/90/157k sheet dps = 9.8

Is there anything special about how cannoneer does damage?

Single target do all the other runes give you the same multiplier? (all should give the %20 wpn dmg)

AOE.

not really worth testing for me, I HATE not having teleport. Even when I am running ubers and have slow time on instead, i just hate not having it, it goes from being able to make 2 mistakes down to 1 mistake, and sometimes instagib if I am not paying close enough attention on SK/magh. but, it may be fun to use on mp9 and 10 when I am just messing around and trying things out.

Better than a 12% damage boost to attacks Aimless?

Cannoneer is aoe so like it works on gohm unlike electrify and works on packs like electrify.

Cannoneer is 5 min. Bubble is like 10 seconds.

It's all prolly same stuff though ~ 20% boost just another way to get there.

You had mentioned that it proc'd APOC however....if that is indeed the case that makes it a very interesting option to people who may be on the cusp of not having enough.
