ya for those of us who bought weapons specifically for the new ruby its going to be a huge buff.
and they even buffed mruby from 150 in ptr to 160 in live.
02/12/2013 01:35 PMPosted by esorbmaWhat makes a weapon especially good for the new average damage that the rubies will provide?
Also... I believe they modified it so the dmg % modifier doesnt do anything with rubies. That was the initial PTR ruby which was sweet.... now it's a straight dmg modifier to min/max dmg. So really the only thing that allows benefit from rubies is higher aps weapon which would give more dps from it.
Whether your weapon has 20% dmg modifier or 50% dmg modifier doesn't matter anymore.
02/12/2013 03:15 PMPosted by ChuckNorrisyou are mistaken and I just logged in to confirm in live. what was changed (effective mid ptr) is the way the ruby interacts with the black dmg "bug" which was doubling the max dmg part of the ruby in the first few ptr builds.
02/13/2013 07:25 AMPosted by EddardStarkAlso, would you mind explaining what about your weapon is specifically geared toward the Ruby? Apologies for my mathematical ignorance.
02/13/2013 07:32 AMPosted by Dropsywonder if a ruby will be better for me? Wasn't there a site I could do the comparison?
02/13/2013 07:38 AMPosted by EddardStarkSince I have the %50 damage mod on my Carving Knife, I imagine the Ruby will be better for me? I will swap and compare Radiants later after I send my Track kids home.
Appreciated Ofgortens. Does stacking Avg Damage on rings and amulet + elemental damage (which gets added to physical) further improve the effectiveness of the ruby?
02/13/2013 07:50 AMPosted by EddardStarkAppreciated once more for you going to the trouble to punch those numbers in
No problem. I expect your Zuni Pox and Zuni Helm as payment for the hardships you put me through :) Or you can just add me and we can do some runs later.
