Can someone explain to me the benefits of the SOJ? I mean, I found one today and decided to ID it and take a chance. Came out with the following:
+6% Frenzy Dmg
So...just an avg. roll for a fire SOJ. I use frenzy as my main fury boost, so that was helpful. With all the added fire, I decided to switch from REND to WhirlWind and go with Volcanic Eruption. I'm not certain whether the ring is helping that attack or not, but I assume so.
So, I go out and start hitting stuff. Keep in mind, I'm also using FireWalkers and leaving a trail of fire. My sword has NO Fire dmg, so I decided to buy a cheap Axe of Sankis with 800 DPS and (Vs. 1200+ for my sword) and see what happens. Wasn't expecting much.
GEEZUS! I'm like a ball of inferno walking around! Walked into act 1 Weeping Hallow and started using WW and there were burning parts of demons hanging all over trees, houses, fences...it looked pretty spectacular. That low DPS was actually holding up quite nicely with all the bonuses. Wonder what a good one of those would do.
So, I put my sword back on and still getting flaming body parts all over the place just using Frenzy! My sword has no fire dmg and Frenzy isn't a fire attack? Not sure what's up with that. The stone just makes whatever you hold graphically do that kind of dmg?
You have a "black" (no element) weapon, so you can get any and all types of elemental damage added to it. The accurate way to read +%5 fire damage is "+5% damage as fire". All of your attacks are increased by 5% and imbued with fire.
