History

maybe arc was not designed for dps, it might be a "shock curse" that deal some damage.

Shock time is based on damage dealt. No damage - no shock.

thats incorrect

there is always a "minimum shock duration if the spell has Shock chance"
around 0.23 secs? link chain to it - use a lvl 1 arc and go merciless lunaris
and look carefully if u cast the arc between 2 mobs.

Nnno, that's not the case. What that is referring to is the minimum duration the Shock has to last in order to apply in the first place. If the total duration of a Shock stack ends up below that threshold, it simply doesn't apply at all.

there is no feedback nowhere in the forum from the devs.
that 1 lighting dmg with % chance of shock doesnt apply shock.

again just check it . Arc lvl 1 - chain - ele prof - Merciless lunaris tempel 2

and tell me if they mobs get shock its hard to see , but look carefully its 0.2 seconds.
i dont think its my big 2-30 arc dmg that shocks them or this is the 1% of hp.

its more than i think its like if u have under 1% lets say 0.6% AND the chance to shock it will be rounded up to 1.

Oh really now. Wonder what Mark's talking about then.

If you have Shock Duration increases (Static Blows cluster, Thunderfists most notably), you can Shock with fairly little damage. The duration increase is applied before the minimum length threshold is checked.

ok than tell me how i can shock a

Tentacle Miscreation Merciless with a arc 1 lvl 1 4-57 dmg

i have ele prof with arc and it did prof to another Pietys miscreation.
it was much under 1 second. i couldnt say if it was 0.26 seconds or 0.3 seconds
i ll update asap i manage to get a decent slow motion video for everbody satisfaction.

Also i dont know how much HP a tentacle miscreation has on merciless. but it would take like 400 shots to kill one. So less than 1% i think?
and there were alot of "confirmed" but "doesnt work" information or "doesnt work correctly" information.

so far - its a beta



ps. and now kole

Again, with Shock Duration you can Shock dealing below 1% Max Life in Damage (and you need just slightly more than 1% by default but w/e). There's a reason I mentioned that stat, and you seem to ignore it?


It might take 400 shots to kill one (which I really doubt either way), but you only need one high-end damage roll to Shock something. Your average hit might not be enough to inflict Shock, but Lightning has highly variable damage.
