Iskatu FTW. So many achievements can be farmed there, from Hunter or Hunted to Like Water and Impenetrable Defense.

comment Are damage over time effects buffed retroactively from damage buffs?
@Frank But weapon's damage being modified by main stat and total skill damage being further modified by another skill are veery far apart in the calculation order, wouldn't you agree? And nothing indicates these two operations are performed identically, that's what I mean.

@Frank, okay, but in Diablo 3 there's no direct relation between main stat, that boosts base weapon damage, and abilities, that increase received damage from all sources by a percent. Not until it is proven, there isn't. I may be blissfully ignorant about the game, and that's why I fail to grasp the logic.

How "stat boosts" are the same as "damage buffs"??? I am thoroughly puzzled with how this could have been closed, and am upset.

comment Can damage over time effects crit?
Hm, judging by related questions offered by the site, almost everything, if not absolutely everything, crits. This may be closed as a dupe :-)

Turn on "Damage numbers" in game options. White numbers will then mean normal hits, and yellow numbers will mean crits. It definitely is not per cast, but I am not sure if individual ticks crit.

comment How to determine correct difficulty to play at level 70?
DPS/Toughness/Healing tell very little. Depending on you build and, more importantly, Legendaries, you may be able to dish out 10 to 30 times more actual DPS than what character sheet says. So any ranges given without a specific build are bound to be very approximate.

comment How does attack speed affect damage for various skills?
I also don't see how slower weapons being better for some subset of skills breaks this quote-balance-unquote. :-)

comment How does attack speed affect damage for various skills?
In a pre-RoS gameplay stream one of the Blizzard employees was playing a triple-leap-earthquake barbarian. This build's main damage comes from the cooldown-restricted Leap, and they were mentioning that a two-hander is essential for this build. I am under the impression that skills still use weapon damage, not DPS, and heavier weapons are therefore better for cooldown skills.

comment Does volcano avalanche really have 3 times the damage of the other runes?
@z- The numbers are correct. Avalanche deals 1600% weapon damage, some runes up to 1800%, and one - Volcano - lists 4400%. I have no level 70 at hand to test, though. I guess the area is less predictable or something. Plus it is over 5 seconds.

Thanks for testing! I'll test more extensively when I have the time.

comment How does Quetzalcoatl's legendary ability interact with Creeping Death?
Better pair Creeping Death with a Raiment of Jade Harvester set bonus. Yes, it does work.

Chain Lightning is not a class skill, btw. And yes, it works.
