Hey guys. Please answer:

1. Does effect of Elemental Equilibrium (5 sec base) lasts longer when using Increased Skill Duration in tree and gem Increased Duration Support?
2. Will bosses suffer additional +50% damage when they stay on Shocking Ground as if they were shocked?
3. Will bosses suffer additional +50% damage when they stay on Shocking Ground even if they have immune to shock?

Just trying to figure out which is better using Arc totem or Vaal Lightning trap on my SRS Witch to debuff them.

As far as I know:

1: Increased Skill Duration gem will have no effect on Elemental Equilibrium as it's not a skill. Nor does the passives on the tree.

2: Shock Grounds applies shock to whatever is standing on it as if you had applied the condition via lightning damage, so yes they will take more damage.

3: No, they are immune to shock, so in effect shocked ground does nothing.
About essence drain (ED) and the consuming dark (unique dagger), it says " your chaos damage poisons enemies ".

Does it work on the initial hit of ED or the degen. Or does it work with both since they are chaos damage.
ED's poison will be based on the initial Hit, not the DoT. It's really quite good.

When I was looking at the champion ascendancy I was under impression that "First to Strike, Last to Fall" would remove burn form RF just like flask of dousing does. But after getting the point I discovered it does not work. Is burning from Righterous Fire not an elemental status ailment, or is it a bug?
Working as intended. The elemental status ailments are Chill, Freeze, Shock and Ignite - RF does not Ignite.

Hey, thx for your answer!

I do understand RF deals no damage, but the weird fact is that it acts like a 0-damage burn (and replaces instantly any other ignite). Depending on how you see it, it could still be a "real"burn (acting like one + visual effect).

I guess the real question is : does an ignite/burn actually need to deal damage over time in order to be considered a valid burning effect for Ramako? Maybe it is, and then you're right ^^

Not sure what you mean by replacing other ignites ... Ignite is a status ailment that makes an enemy burn for 4 seconds. Burning from RF is a DoT and doesn't replace any ignite as it doesn't ignite them in the first place.

And yes the burn needs to do damage in order to kill. Enemies in your case are not dying from the RF burning effect.

got a question

this video

is that true minions get same charges effect with monster ??

Yes, it was disclosed by Mark or Chris at some point after a Reddit user had asked the question.
Trying again...

So, i stumbled upon a problem..


from -

of Talent Req. Lv. 2 (8-11)% increased Cast Speed
of Nimbleness Req. Lv. 15 (12-15)% increased Cast Speed
of Expertise Req. Lv. 30 (17-20)% increased Cast Speed
of Legerdemain Req. Lv. 40 (21-24)% increased Cast Speed --- Should be this tier cast speed on my staff
of Prestidigitation Req. Lv. 55 (26-29)% increased Cast Speed
of Sortilege Req. Lv. 72 (30-33)% increased Cast Speed
of Finesse Req. Lv. 83 (35-38)% increased Cast Speed

But when i divine it, i cannot get past 22 cast speed, AND i can get all the way down to 20 cast speed.


I do not understand this.. maybe it is normal, maybe the gamepedia is wrong. i do not know, this is why i post this, and hope someone could clarify this for me.

P.s made this staff in standard, during prophecy league, like halfway into it-ish. and the ilvl is 84.

Maybe wrong information in WiKi.

Poeaffix has plenty of outdated stuff. I wouldn't rely on it.

I think staves got a silent buff this league and it has created legacy items. Look at the mirror service here, if you're doing mirror services the mods should be top tier right?

Well, there's plenty of staves with considerably higher cast speed here:
