This is true I've noticed an increase but I was unsure and have no real way of testing it myself.
But it's good info thanks.
I always wondered about vortex and the torrent skill stat even when classed as a wizard item. It would contradict previously answered queries about skill affixes for other classes and whether it really applies. As a good Eternal vortex find is inevitable sooner rather than later..
Not even that great of a roll.
It would still be an utter shame if those skill points went to waste.
Also, I made sure I had NO HP regen or anything that I had equipped had any sort of heal. Went through my stats, talents and skills.
Then I equipped my ascendant pet fairy and it had Prayer as an epic affix. If I'm not mistaken, Prayer is a talent for another class? In which case. It still applied. I made absolutely sure. When I play tomorrow I'll upload a Video.
I've mentioned this before and I was Told it does not apply.
