Area Damage

General Discussion
i never understood what area damage do. lets say 20% ADmg adds 20% of dmg when attacking ? idk, enlighten me plz

Bout the same as AoE(Area of Effect)I believe
If you open your character details page and highlight area damage, it should tell you how it works.

But here it is in a nutshell: Every time you deal damage, no matter if it's single target, AoE, or DoT there is a 20% chance that it will also deal area damage to 10 yard radius on the target monster. This area damage can be increased by paragon points and gear, but the radius or proc chance cannot be increased. For the record: the 20% chance is not affected by skill coefficients afaik.

I remember someone doing the calculations on the PTR and confirming that the splash damage is also dealt on the monster itself on top of the regular damage, but I can't confirm if that's true or not.
