Diablo® III

Galvanizing Ward is the best passive for SNS

Ok, since we all know that we can snapshot Lifesteal from LS Skorn with Storm Armor, and the damage also with Shocking Aspect (huge buff here lol), maintaining the buff duration become more important than ever, Benefit:

- Less weapon swapping (once every 4 mins)
- High Lifesteal from Storm armor Lightning
- High extra dps and lifesteal from buffed Shocking Aspect
- Extra Life per second (ok this one is negligible)
- Extra 1-3x multiplier (i'm not sure havent tested this, might've been wrong on this one..)

Evocation doesnt work with my 200+ ms ping sadly, so i replace with this underrated passive..

Enjoy it, might be nerfed in next patch along with Monk snapshot

Edit: Multiplier increases depending on how good your skorn is... affected only for Shocking Aspect, i'll leave it to you guys to test, i might've been wrong on this multiplier thingy lol.

Edit2: recent testing shows that it might not affected your Shocking Aspect dps but it does affect the Lifesteal

Yeah, he is right. LS Skorn = mass life steal off Storm Armor. Wait, there is something I knew that the majority of the wizard community doesnt have spreadsheets on... winner.

my income is not from there, high dps LS skorn is already expensive to begin with, might not be a good investment, And it may be fixed along with all snapshot system...

You cant do it with sparkflint and BM, and there's not much benefit from it anyways, what we need is buff where it have auto attacks and reactive effect, which is Storm Armor - Shocking Aspect

been knowing for quite sometime, just want to share with wiz community, because i dont personally like snapshot system..

It is true, you guys didn't know about this? However it's not like what monks can currently do with sweeping wind. Every time you cast storm armor you have to equip the Skorn so if you're in the middle of a fight and you refresh with your chants items, you loose the damage buff.

I thought this was common knowledge with spells like storm armor? Its damage is calculated at the time of casting by whatever weapon you have in your hand. It does not change from swapping weapons, but like I said above, if you refresh storm armor without the Skorn in your hands your damage buff disappears.

Something similar also works with DH Shuriken Cloud and Caltrops (traps, too, I think) if you cast Shadow Power before casting them. The huge life steal from SP winds up persisting through the entire duration of those other abilities.

They'll probably all be fixed eventually. The severity of the Monk snapshotting was so huge that it had to be addressed right away, though.

If you use galvanizing you Won't need to refresh very often

I know about the snapshotting, and posted on it a while back and even made a bug post about it. However, Storm Armor does not snapshot your weapon damage. That's super easy to test, just cast storm armor then remove your weapon and watch the damage per lightning strike plummet. The snapshot only applied to the life steal that I saw. I didn't test the SA damage though but again that should be fairly easy to test.
