Oble's got it right, thanks for doing your best to clear that up for me Oble.
Agarath, you should read the sections:
"Will a weapon with Elemental damage, other than cold, still proc CtW?"
"What's Black Damage and how is it affected by the +X% Cold Damage?"
"What if one of my items already as an element on it, will it affect anything?"
They answer all of your questions.
But basically your bow's black damage portion can be found by looking at the equivalent iLvL white item, in this case an iLvL62 Bow:http://us.battle.net/d3/en/item/phantom-bow
Min = 68 to 70 = 69 Average Min
Max = 392 to 396 = 394 Average Max
Average Range = 69-394 = 231 Average Black Damage (or do the subtraction method oble used)
Oble mentioned you use a ruby which is also black damage:http://us.battle.net/d3/en/artisan/jeweler/recipe/marquise-ruby
160 Average Black Damage
Total Average Black = 231 + 160 = 391 <--- this is the value affected by an element affix such as 6% lightening damage on your SoJ
The element that is already on your weapon is ignored 110%. Again I can't stress The game doesn't care AT ALL what element is on the weapon already, it only looks at the black damage. Another thing is that the lightening SoJ added the exact same amount of damage that any other elemental soj would have, because it looks at the black damage not lightening on your weapon
