Is the percentage correct???
# May 06 2004 at 6:10 PM Rating: Decent
Using Summer's Flame...Normal 1400 damage DD. +20% would make it 1680...But the other day, I nuked for 1876 w/out criting after I got an ID4 item...

Anyone have any ideas? I don't have any other items that affect DD's...At least I think...

Here's my Magelo:

You have the spell casting fury AA according to your magelo. The AA and the item stack.

But I thought that only changed the amount I crit for...

SCF I = ~+33%
SCF II = ~+66%
SCF III = ~+100%

Does it actually change the amount of the DD iteself?

Ahh, you're right. I have another possibility. If there was a bard in your group, perhaps they were playing the song that increases DD damage.

Don't yet have the AA on my druid, and just assumed that it affected non-crits. I do know the bardsong affects non-crit hits though.

The Question I have is Does it Stack with Ro effect or drizzal effect wich also adds to either fire or cold dd's?
RE: Dmge 4or specific
# Apr 11 2004 at 2:56 AM Rating: Decent
E'ci, Ro, and Drizzal worn effects will NOT stack with this, E'ci, Ro, and Drizzal effects do 23% there for overruling this effect. If they did stack, man would that be uber :)

No, it doesn't stack.
# Dec 29 2003 at 6:04 PM Rating: Decent
anyone know if 2 items with Improved Damage Effects are stackable?

Whatever focus effect does more damage and can be applied to that spell will take effect.
procs yes or no?

Hm, it is that that Improved Damage also affects the damage on proc weapons. Others said that this only affects procs n your weapons for those spells that you have written into your spell book...

Can anyone confirm either or nor?

I tried it with a grimling weapon that procs an ice spell that I have within my spell book and there wasn't any increased damage from my "War Crested Ring". So it was only a hoax or a bug that they had fixed.

Bard song focus does affect proc damage, so I imagine Improved Damage works as well.

Note: Warriors, Monks and Rogues are not affected by damage focus (again, with bard song. I assume the same for ID).
It works perfectly

Not sure what you guys are talking about. Iam a 65 wizzy works perfectly for me on all nukes level 1-65 including SOS.
