Diablo® III

Blizzard - Stark Winter

Does pickup radius increase the radius of this rune?

And with blizzard in the new patch 1.0.7 bliz does 510 dmg... is that 510 dmg per second for 6 seconds or is it 510 dmg in 6 seconds?

ie: 510% dmg in 6 sec w/ a total of 3060% dmg in 6 sec
or: 510% over 6 sec w/ 85% dmg per sec w/ a total of 510%dmg

I'm unsure of which it is and if someone can clear up thoes 2 questions thatd be great!!

Thankyou!

Total of 510% over 6 seconds, not affected by attack speed. So your average damage per blizzard is roughly 5.1(sheetDPS/AttacksPerSecond). Pick up radius doesn't affect the AOE.

It's the latter. 85%/s for 6 seconds. 510% total.

Remember that it's 85% weapon damage, not sheet dps. Divide your sheet dps by your APS and then multiply by 0.85 for your actual per second damage rate. Also, adding +duration items just adds additional seconds at the continued 85%/s rate.

just so you don't have to cast it as often, this can be further extended by +X seconds to blizz duration items, they make blizz last longer and as a result do more damage. I personally like stark winter and snow bound the best. But all the runes are pretty decent except that dumb low lying mist one.
