Diablo® III

REAL rapid fire snapshotting 700k+ dps w/ SoJ

I have to swap stuff faster though and whenever I swap, the Bombardment goes to where my cursor is. I has to practice. LOL

Nyan & Chrizzle, do you guys swap everything?

I am still not sure on the magefist. I bought 1 and was playing with bombardment. The problem with calamity is there are so many hits and criticals and i cannot determine the exact the numbers. It spends hatred very fast too

This build certainly has no problem with discipline. If i use back my regular 10 cc gloves, i will have about 73% RF CC. It procs nightstalker very well

I usually just swap 4 stuff.

Gloves, Ring, Amulet and weapon :)

I have a Blackthorne Armor and Pants(Courtesy of BLKDRGN) that if I equip both, nets me 700 AR and 80k HP

With the above 4 though, it gives me 71% CC with Bait.

Thanks let me see if i can find cheap gears to with more CC. The thing i can think of is my helmet and bracer for an additional 9%. For your black Xbow, what are the damages? I have a problem with calamity. I cant see the damages very clearly as it channels too fast. Anyone have the same problem?

Enchanting trick to reset gold costs, if you get nothing from enchanting an item repeated amount of times.

1. Place your item in the mystic and enchant (don't click a property to replace yet).
2. If none of the properties that YOU want come up, do not replace the property.
3. Keep rerolling say 0-5 more times. If you get nothing, leave game and try again.

Damage ranges from 200-400k on Crit. The range is high because I don't use Bait anymore hence no constant source of SLOW for Cull.

That's why I have Enchantress with SoJ with me. LOL I also use Scoundrel or Templar. Templar seems nice since the Taunt he does forces enemies to attack him that in turn slows them.

Anything the templar attacks also gets slowed due to his Passive.

Consider using magefist. It increases my bombardment dps by a lot!

I still don't benefit as much on Magefist since my Snapshot DPS isn't that high. >_< But I have one ;)

It works well with bola shot volatile explosives as well. I am now using this build to farm DE in VoTA MP5.

Any idea if magefist works well with Trail of Cinders?

I have confirmed that crit chance bonus to rapid fire does snapshot.

Did I just word that wrong...?

how? if you get 100% on shsh and use RF it goes away after 1 second...

5% base
50% cc gear
10% archery
7% mara
7% SoJ
5% skull grasp
8% quiver

This easily adds up to over 100%, did a ghom test, did not see a white number for 2 minutes straight (yea my dps was low)

However if I snapshot and switch to this gear, I WILL see white numbers.

I concluded from this that it MUST snapshot.

So Crit Chance can be snapshotted.. but it can't be from ShSh and.. if you snapshot a "low" Crit Chance, you wont have it increased anymore?

This is the monk Sweeping Wind stuff all over again...

RF will be FIXED, as it is broken in a very bad way... But as for RF you end when your Hatred ends, so the snap is much shorter compare to SW, I wonder how long will take blizz to correct this.

Its not RF, its any channelling skill in the game.

RF is just easier to use since we have prep -> punishment

Would you mind posting the exact test you did? It doesn´t seem right from what we knew. Post the crit chance of set 1 and set 2 alongside the skills that gave you a crit chance bonus. Hahaha and also, did you have "display damage numbers" on?

Yup. It also was clear to me on uber fights when I was seeing much more yellow numbers (90cc, 15 rf cc snapshotted)

I got 100cc gear but mara's and skull grasp suck for dps. But I used em for the test anyways. No snapshotting, no white numbers -> 100% cc. Using bombardment rune so can clearly see numbers.

Tried damage switching to rf cc gear. I see white numbers. But the main tests was when I did my uber carries and it was clear from there. 75% cc to 90% cc you of course expect to see less than half of the white numbers.

Wow my thread got bumped xD

Here is a sample video on ubers. 15rf cc snapshotted, 75 cc on switch, but you clearly see its well above 75 cc.

Also, no one told me if my damage was good or close to a barb....I assume not?

So, congratulations, you found and exploit exactly like the sweeping winds channeling, and used macros to further push the exploit.

I hope they don't change SP over this, and just fix the snapshotting.

DOA

A few questions
1.So its not like SW snapshotting where AS does not affect damage?

2. If I'm holding down '1' and I run outta hatred til it goes to arrows (still holding) hatred regens a bit more goes to skill again, is that still going to be the SS damage? How to retain hatred?

3. SharpSh does or does not snapshot. (SW snapshotting b4 (boost ave dam, cdam, dex) after (boost AS, CC, prot)?? It doesn't make sense that ChC wouldn't always stay what its currently at.

4. Best to go from manti to calamity?? DH is not main curious also if any skills increase damage.. this is weird only class i know of that doesn't have any non passive damage increases.
