    Anyone kind enough to check my POB and point me in the right direction?

    I have 450kish Barrage DPS with both DPS potions checked in PoB but I don't feel that my barrage does a lot of damage on bosses like some of you say you do with only 500-600k pob barrage damage

    Thanks

    Having a tremendous amount of fun with this, though the lag when encountering a Templar Army with all their proximity bubbles is mind-boggling.

  • I'm trying to decide if it's worth switching out a ring and some boots to make the swap to Ryslatha's - and I honestly can't tell.

    I tried multiplying the min and max average hits in PoB by .07/1.4 and recalculating the average from there, but it seemed to be a fairly small boost - and didn't even factor in the ~90% increased damage loss from Nomad.

    Of course I'm probably going about it all wrong, but I've never used Ryslatha's, so any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks again!

    I switched to ryslatha recently and it noticeably increased my clear damage, the difference with barrage is harder to notice cause it already does so much damage.
