I am a bit confused by a couple of the runes from the Monk ability "Seven Sided Strike"
- On the one hand, you have "Sudden Assault" which deals 1007% damage in the normal seven strikes.
- On the other hand, you have "Several Sided Strike" which increases the number of hits to 9.
The community-wide assumption, is that several sided strike deals 999% damage, as the base seven sided strike does 777% in 7 strikes.
The damage difference between the two is fairly negligible. Is there an advantage to one or the other? Do the additional two strikes extend the animation, thereby making you invulnerable for longer?
