Elements damage


I got a nice legend pet which gives arcane damage as skill (+10% and +100 resist) so I decided to change my element from fire to arcane. I changed and my damage and DPS dropped.

Fire damage: 7.33M DPS 130M
Arcane damage: 6.48M DPS 120M

Same gear just different elements.

Is arcane less powerful than fire? are there any other differences with other elements?

Thanks in advance for taking the time to read and reply to my noob questions.


set affix is also connected to the element you use so it drop

maybe you’ve got an Inferno set which increases ED% (Fire) for your weapons that’s why your DPS dropped at low rate when you switch to arcane? You gotta check that on your gear.

Thanks for the suggestions. I’ll check…
