black weapon damage bug still remaining(1)Category: RoS General FeedbackJanuary-22-2014 6:51 AM PST (5 years ago) Go to Blizzard forum post
Do we know if blizzard is aware the problem still exists with the % element damages from stones of jordan

along with the %weapon damage working fine for xxx - xxx physical damage but not xxx-xxx elemental damage on weapons

I have screenshots i can post to prove it but its awkward to address with screenshots on a forum but I will do if needs be the testing i did was all lvl 70 RoS gear and the mystic so i could fix variables so no main stats to wreck any calculations

not entirely sure if it was a bug, I first thought that matching the stone of jordan element to the weapons would help but my lighting damage weapon got the same % boost from a cold and lightning SoJ because it was only working on the base damage and so was not even giving a 5% boost, thanks to the mystic i even had the weapon with the bonus damage removed and got the same increase showing the lighting damage was not being taken into account at all

%weapon damage cannot match the xxx-xxx elemental damage like the stone of jordan so when enchanting bonus damage if the weapon has %wd then no stat should be rolled other than xxx - xxx physical damage

or if a weapon had xxx-xxx elemental damage and you wanted to enchant a different affix you should not pick %wd as you won't get an increase equal to weapons with xxx - xxx physical damage by default

it seems to me it should either boost if the elements align (cold weapon, cold soj) or just apply the full % to whatever the total damage range of the weapon is since the item tooltip combines base plus bonus damage to a flat xxx-xxx display under DPS anyway

but it doesn't do either, in every test and variation xxx - xxx physical damage is always the best damage roll when combined with SoJ's or %weapon damage.
Even when the mystic rolls xxx - xxx physical damage as the lowest offered value it can still beat elemental weapons.

Short answer: Yes, we're aware of both those things.

Long(er) answer: We're working on a fix for this. It may not make the next beta build, but we plan to have it implemented for the live pre-expansion patch. =)
