Windform poison damage

Post by xenest on Sun Nov 30, 2014 11:02 pm

Just started this mod back up, looking forward to some new content Smile I'm loving the new barb most of all the new skill trees.

One thing I noticed is how insane the poison damage is on windform, and it gets even more ridiculous with snake stance on. I killed Andy in 2 spins on players 8. Is this intended or does the power start to diminish as you progress further in difficulty?

Windform's specialty is single-target damage. It looks like an AoE spell, but Whirlwind in D2 is coded in such a way that you're only hitting one monster at a time at your regular attack rate. So you'll quickly notice how terrible it is vs. packs of monsters (like in A2 Sewers, maybe you already noticed Razz).

To compensate Marco's given it a lot of single-target and tanking power. But eventually you'll probably end up using it as a utility skill alongside your true AoE main skills.
