Mechanical Questions Thread

Hi, i have got a fews questions about some mechanics

Question:

Reflected Damage cap
Holy Flame Totem Cap


Does the Reflected Damage from Torchoak'Steps are capped to a certain limit or number per seconds?

And same for the number of Mobs that Holy Flame Totem can hit?






Assuming 4 Totems, 10 cast per seconds. 100% chance to ignite and, 23'226 HP per totem ( Pob if need ) and lv 27 Holy Flame totem with 241% inc Totem life.

Reflected Damage should be 5'806.5 Fire damage per reflect.
It can only be scaled with inc Damage taken for the monsters, for the sake of simplicity, lets say they resist and only take 50% (even if we have skitter bots shock, Chiftain Pene and some pene in the tree and the more damage taken near your totem and the curses]

When the totems shoot 20 mobs 10 time a second they should do arround 1'161'300 Raw fire damage that translate to 580'650 Damage taken. and even without taking into account the multiplier we could have on the monster, it feel like it doesnt even work.

I also tested in a reflect map and hadded some lightning damage, and where we should have double damage due to reflect, we didnt.

At first i wanted to write a bug reporst but before i wanted to check if that wasnt part of a mechanics or a limit i wasnt aware.

Like for exemple, Bone mortar and bone nova from Bone Husk Specter are capped. Adding more projectile wont add more Bone Mortar nor more Bone Nova.
And like Cold Snap not being able to be used in a CoC build.


The only feeling i have is to compare to a 1.7 Mio Shaper DPS build that kills Blight Bosses in a few seconds and where this setup should be faster and is instead way slower

Sorry for my bad english, its not a rant it s a true asking, i just added matter to help understand the context. I know at the time cold snap had to be prevented for Coc due to a bug bypassing the Cooldown and that it was such a complexe matter it is still not resolved, not due to bad skills or no intention but because its ultra hard and time consumming and that costy dev time is due elsewere [ i totally understand and agree, not arguing or sarcasting at all]

I had the idea to build arround the boots, but il be glad to know before level a build that dont seem to work as intended. i better stop at 79 instead of haveing bad time until 92, there is still plenty of fun thing to do.



oh because i always had something off topic.

Whish list for Lightning Warp to be great Again [Nobody use it]
° adding radius per level
° re enabling Aoe to affect its AOE [got destroyed]
° bringing its detection radius back to pre 3.0 [should be 2.3 good]
° a little more damage or something special to it
° its been 3 year i m dreaming to play a LW miner again :)


Thanks for your time and keep up the good work

reflect stuff
Reflected damage cannot itself be reflected, or otherwise trigger on-hit effects. Otherwise, there would be an infinite loop of reflection between your totems and monsters. So your totems getting their damage reflected to themselves will not trigger the reflection of Torchoak Steps.

Does anyone know if Yoke of Suffering work with Corpse Pact?

Question about ES recovery in the form of an example:

If i have a character that has 10% Life Regeneration in Total and Zealot's Oath. and i equip both an item that grants 10% Increased Life Recovery Rate and another item that grants 10% Energy Shield Recovery Rate, will the life recovery item work (giving me 11% regen), the energy shield recovery one(again 11% total), or will both work (resulting in 12,1% regen total)?

Your life recovery will not apply to your energy shield recovery. Only the increased energy shield recovery will apply to your regeneration. With Zealot's Oath, you no longer recover life from your life regeneration, so modifiers that don't affect life regeneration directly no longer apply to it.
Question: Does the Ghost Reaver passive work on maps with "No life leech" mod?

It does not.
Hello I am completely new but I like the game so far. I took my time to read trough wikis, a few guides and more or less I get the mechanics but I've got questions about the very base of the game and that's gem linking. As funny as it sounds I more or less get the other mechanics outside of map crafting but that's far away for me. ^^
1.Does the attack gem gotta be first in line and the support gems linked below or it can be for instance in the middle of link chain and 2 support gems relativly above it and 2 below it. Same question about trigger gems too like cast when damage taken support. Does it gotta be first and the next 1-3 spells/curses/buffs after it in the chain or it can be in the middle.
2.A bit of a moronic quest but if you get and item with 4 blue sockets for instance and they are chained 2 by 2 can you get 2 auras from each chain respectivly/2/3/4 auras from 1 item. Thank you.
