For those who don't know, the Legacy of Nightmare is a ring set that boosts damage by 100%, and reduces damage taken by 4%, for every piece of ancient legendary item equipped. Patch 2.4.1 at time of writing

With all ancient gear (helm, chest, belt, legs, shoulders, bracers, gloves, boots, ammy, 2 rings, and both weapon slots) this can add up to 1300% damage and 52% damage reduction.

My question is: Does this damage boost apply to all sources of damage? The character, his pets and follower, item procs such as Odyn Son or Fire Walkers all the legendary gem procs, thorns, bleed, damage gained from items such as Soul Smasher and Death's Bargain, etc? Any special exceptions?

I'm hoping for a list of things it will (or won't, if that is easier) work with but any information is helpful.

  • I don't have time to research now, but LoN definitely boosts all skills (including pets), gems, and thorns (as people are running LoN thorns builds).

It affects all damage the actual character does. Pets and followers aren't included. Legendary procs are affected as they are part of the character.

    How can you explain the existence of "LoN pet builds", if pet attacks are not affected?
