Conduit Pylon questions

General Discussion
Wondered if anyone has tested conduit pylon mechanics:

1. How much %weapon damage does it deal?
2. Do some or all damage modifiers buff it? Set bonuses? Elite damage?
3. Are the conduit strikes considered lightning damage or buffed by elemental bonus?
4. Does Power Pylon increase the damage of the conduit strikes?
5. If I stand in an oculus ring circle does that increase the damage of the conduit strikes?

I'm not good at testing mechanics. Thanks if anyone has any info!
Not sure about all your questions, but I know that elite damage buffs it - that's why zdps wear a bonus to elite gem in their weapon sometimes since life on hit has been known to lag the game.

4. Does Power Pylon increase the damage of the conduit strikes?

No, this has been nerf a long time ago : patch 2.3 one year ago i guess.
Power does no more increase the damage of conduit.

Depends on the rift level - the higher the rift, the higher the damage is.

ALL damage increase buffs it, like LoN, Akkhan and IK. it also benefits from EW and BoW bonus, plus elite bonus.

Pretty sure it doesn't have any elements and doesn''t trigger any elemental effects.

4. Does Power Pylon increase the damage of the conduit strikes?

Nope, that combo was removed.

5. If I stand in an oculus ring circle does that increase the damage of the conduit strikes?

It should, as it's an ALL DAMAGE increase.
All i know is that they usually spawn before a level change and most are wasted.
Things in the game that are cosmetics and remain unnoticed as such.
