Last night I was playing an "All-Mid" game and used artillery for the first time. His LRM (long range missiles) skill does 15 damage + 35% of "Base" weapon damage with each shot.
My question arose as the result of me wondering what items would be synergistic with the LRM skill for boosting base damage. Is base damage a derivative of your primary stat? Do items with +X damage count as "Base"?
A sub-question: Is there a good website/forum for Heroes of Newerth that breaks down and explains all intricacies of the game mechanics (like "what orb effects stack").
