Vessel of retribution damage type?

Post by PhoenixRising on Sat Feb 07, 2015 2:33 pm

I tried posting a new question in short questions, but it didn't work. Anywho like the title says, does anyone know what damage type vessel of retribution is? I tried equipping items with +to magic/physical, but it didn't bump anything

physical spell damage, as far as I know.
it does get increased by +% to magic/physical spell damage. I just checked it.

That is so weird, since I switched from a +30% weapon to a +80% weapon and only got a bump of 200,so figured it was physical and something else. Thanks for checking tho!

+30% what stat? xD
+% to magic/physical spell damage?

well, its base damage is low, so I think that's why it doesn't get much bonus?
also, remember that +% to Spell Damage includes +% to magic/physical spell damage. +skills help too.

maybe someone that plays paladin can help you more, I don't really know.

There is a difference between physical weapon damage and physical spell damage.

Vessel of Retribution is a spell, and as such its damage is affected by (global) spell damage and physical/magic spell damage. A weapon with "X% Enhanced Damage" does not affect any spell, as "enhanced damage" is a weapon damage modifier.

If you really did switch from a 30% spell damage weapon to an 80% spell damage weapon, bear in mind there are a great many modifiers to spell damage- character level, energy, energy factor, and spell damage bonuses- not to mention spell level itself. Increasing your spell damage by 50% will not necessarily correlate to a 50% damage bonus.

Yea it was physical/magical spell damage I pumped on it. So far, it seems as tho that makes much less of an impact than +spell damage and much much less than +skills. Thanks for answering guys, it makes more sense now:)
