Diablo® III

shared benefits from followers ???

I know MF and GF are shared on a %V basis but is there any other stats they share like AR or PUR or CC or CD.

Just wondering as that would be a nice benefit since they dont really help with damage just crowd control or somone else for the monsters to focus on while I run away. LOL.

thanks for any info

Hey there except for MF & GF they share also bonus exp per kill and bonus exp%.
Their bonus exp per kill can be viewed in the character page on blizzard site, however the bonus exp% they add from for example hellfire ring can only be noticed while opening Your character inventory and clicking detailed stats info button, and scrolling down to bonus exp% and next open follower inventory and eqip them with bonus exp% items to see how much additional buff You'll get.

As a general rule of thumb You only get 20% (that's 1/5) of the initial bonus value wether be it GF/MF or exp per kill/ exp% so for example when You equip follower with hellfire ring You get only 7% buff ftom the whole 35% that is presented on the ring (35/5=7)

I would Hold Yer Horses with the low damage output from the followers.
i assume things will change dramaticly when blizzard fixes thorns affix to be affected by main stat's damage output(as they explained in developer Q&A). after that a radiant star topaz in followers socketed weapon might proove to be worth more than their total dps in terms of damage output because their stats are multiplied by 2.5x
this might proove to be OP especially for the templar with taunt skill selected
