Question: is it true that Elixir seems to effect hero points of any weapon skill regardless of class. I found that when I used an Elixir Mythstone on my Chakram, it seemingly upgraded the orb in hero points even though I can't see it as I'm rogue. I noticed the orb was a little slower but a little higher hit frequency. Otherwise it's still pretty good regardless. I felt the effects but I don't really know if it's placebo.
I heard about this claim long ago but only now I actually tested and it seems to work.
Last question: I think Arcanist can stack from hirling as I saw that guide about Arcanist that @f00kee made and the video demonstrated that Arcanist from hirling can be stacked with the other Arcanist. I thought it does stack as it's a debuff but I haven't really tested yet so I'm doubtful. I suppose I'll test today.
Edit: tested it today, Arcanist does stack with hirling and that's op and awesome! I was trying to get such a high power number but I didn't think it was possible in single mode. Hirling ftw.
@Ksyc , if you get 100% pierce chance by Zenith, it means all attacks that pass into an enemy can now 100% pierce. Should only work on projectiles . This means it works on Barrage (wand primary), pierce skill and throwsword already pierce so it isn't changed, flintlock ricochet is probably effected, guidedshot and toss or scalp (if they don't pierce already).
