its SILLY strong for me... cleave don't have a chance! i'm removing it from my build this very second.
i am using
Cyclone + Melee Damage + Life on Hit + Faster Attacks (+ % life steal once i have 5 soc)
its perfect! i love it!
You must be about level 30 with remarks like that.
one might think that cleave is "stronger" and indeed its pretty strong. but compare that whit the fast attacks from cyclone whit my high %lifesteal (6% (2% passive+4% gear)) and life on hit and its more safe then standing still and spamming cleave.
ps i use blood magic :)
the thing is that its allot better for me and my build, where i had problems before i roll over now. its great.
You're life steal is only working at 35% due to the damage effectiveness, I only have about 6% life steal in total, and I could basic attack an entire group of mobs and survive, so I only care about the damage of it.
Is the DPS shown being calculated correctly? It seems to be doing a lot more than it claims to be doing, and from what Mark said about the skill, it sounds like it's wrong:
I'm a DW Duelist, level 69 for whatever it's worth. Cyclone reports my Main Hand Total Combined Damage is 133-208 (170.5 average). My Off Hand Total Combined Damage is 71-196 (133.5 average). Attacks per Second is 2.68. By what Mark said, I would swing with each weapon once per spin, and spin at my attack speed. That means 133.5 + 170.5 = 304 damage per spin, multiplied by 2.68 APS = 814.72 DPS. My reported DPS is 407.4, conveniently exactly half (and some rounding) of my calculated number.
So it seems that either the DPS shown is off by a factor of 2, or it only actually attacks once per spin, not once per weapon per spin.
I can see why they nerfed the life on hit. I justt anked a group of 40 mobs at docks under an attack speed boss aura with a mix of longshoreman blues, white void bearers and packs of archers. I my hp and mana didn't drop a second and thats with only 13 life on hit and 7% life leech.
has anyone gotten concetrated effect to work btw? I'd like to know before I buy one.
