Archon wiz question

Does ias effect archon beam at all ? Like the more ias the better the beam ir is it not based off ias at all just curious cus I was stacking serious dps without ias so I wanna make sure im not doing down wrong road thx for any helpful input

I believe IAS will increase proc rate of beam (so how many times it ticks over a period of time held)

I guess I dont understand? right now im at 370k buffed I feel like im melting hardcore on mp 7 now . does the proc rate make the beam go faster hit more or I mean am I missing something?

By ticking do you mean when it crits? tryingto understand this cus now i think im screwing up by dropping ias

More IAS = higher beam DPS. The beam damage scales directly from your char sheet dps.

so basically being 370k dps is doing me no justice dropping some ias?

Or when you say it scales from what my paper dps is then if im 370k dps, . thats what its scaling not what my ias is or were u just meaning more ias gives more dps ? im just really confused

you should try pinpoint barrier and watch your DPS go up by 20-30k :-0

that's the latest archon trick I learned, I'm slowly :p

Storm Armor single target does more than 20-30k. If you're at 200k with 2 APS it does 100k DPS single target.

hmmm... I hear, but at 65% CC it would help archon refresh more, correct?

At 60 or 65% CC you sholdn't need the extra CC to help Archon refresh. I don't even have 40% CC in my Archon set and I refresh it just fine. And if you're trying to run perma Archon, you shouldn't really need to refresh. Otherwise, you might need pinpoint for the armor for survival if Archon is falling off somewhat frequently.

IAS affect the tick rate, which makes it hit more often = higher damage splats lol
