Max Magicka: the higher your magicka , the higher your spell damage of your abilities right ? Is it it the same for your staff attacks ?
Spell damage: here the same i guess , the higher your spell Damage , the higher the damage of your skills as well right ?
But why using spell damage instead of max magicka then ? They do both the same, however max magicka still gives another advantage of having more ressources for casting spells ... isnt it ?
Yes, all ults scale with whatever is higher, except for Penetration. A physical damage ultimate will scale with Physical Penetration, not Spell Penetration. You also probably mainly want CP bonuses that increase your Spell Penetration and Magic, Shock, Fire, and Frost damage, which won't benefit a Physical/Poison/Disease ultimate skill. But yeah, you can totally use them. It's less effective but not completely ineffective. I used to use the 2H ult on my magblade for PvP.Ultimates : Are ultimates from stamina based weapons ( which will deal physical damage) as good as the magicka line ultimates if you are a magsorc? I d like to use other ultimates (not standard magicka) however i am afraid they are less effective then the regular sorcerer ultimates ...
ultimates scale with your highest ressource ... so i know ultimates will cost me magicka anyway ... but will the ohysical damage of stamina-ultimates be high enough if my build is magicka based ?
What are the main differences between
- frost damage (immobilizes i know)
- Fire damage (deals more damage i guess)
- Lightning damage (deals damage to more enemies i guess)
- Magic damage —-> no idea !
What does magic damage exactly do?
If you are CP300 and magicka focused , how high does then your stats minimum have to be To be able to have a solid build ?
- how high max magicka needed
- Spell damage
- Spell critical %
- Critical damage%
Is magicka recovery important for anything else (damage wise) if you have sufficient sustain ?
It looks like you're thinking of the bonus for Lightning Staves. Lightning Staff passives give +8% AoE damage, and the heavy attacks deal splash damage. But only when you have a lightning staff equipped — it'll buff all AoE damage, and shock damage doesn't get that buff without a lightning staff equippedI thought shock damage from lightning staff was giving some aoe damage due to the electricity shocks? Is your damage from a light shock not passed through a little bit to other surrounding enemies?
Yah it looks like it's with food. And at above like ~50% crit, Shadow stone would be better than Thief, anywayThe stats from that picture alcastHQ are amazing. His Critical might have been even +80 % with the thief ... !!
Are those stats with food buffs ? I hope so because otherwise mine are really bad haha!
PC NA over here :~pFyi : are you playing on EU on PC ? I am , so feel free to add me eMKa8 (my account name)
Well yah Major Sorcery increases your Spell Damage stat by 20%, which increases the actual damage of your spells and light attacks and stuff, but not by 20%Do i understand correctly that major sorcery indeed only increases your spell damage? I thought it buffed the damage of your skills in general, and didnt realise it only referred to spell damage and NOT to spells. 😉
The secondary effects of staff attacks (light or heavy) , do they all last for 10 seconds each?
Why do most people always choose inferno staff? Is it only because it has a higher damage effect due to the dot?
