How do you keep the negagitve damage off aoe tools?


#1

Hi just seeing if it is possible. if it is please tell me how thank you.


#2

Not possible, the AoE Buff comes with a damage debuff.
Overall though, you are still doing more damage per hit.

you can:

  • try and get a damage boon along with the aoe boon to counteract it.
  • use strength brews to counteract the damage debuff.

it’s a bit of a give-and-take relationship.

Hey thanks for the input just didnt know and which gum dose the damage trait fall under ?


#4

the effect gum.


#5

Its really hard to get damage boon on a hammer as effect gum has 3 or 4 boons in its category meaning you have a 25-33% chance of getting the one you want if the chance of getting them is an even chance split


#6

I wonder if Crit effect would work just as well?

I don’t build crit…but on a crit hammer you could up the damage by % equal to the crit value if you max the crit chance, or at least increased it.

I think it is viable depending on the hammer stats.


#7

If crit is at 100% or more, would the tool crit every single time?
That might be a good balance


#8

Yea at 100% you have a 100% chance for critical effect
