Shock dmg question

Which shock dmg deals greater dmg?
+5409 shock dmg or +20% shock dmg?

5409? I’m quite sure the upper limit for elemental damage+ is 5000 unless it’s an eternal…

Anyway, it depends. If you already have, let’s say, +200% element damage for a total of 300%. If you add 20% there it won’t be much. +5000 element damage increases attack damage per instance, so fast weapons will get a greater damage bonus than slower ones.

If you can somehow post all affixes on your gear we can help you estimate.

5k is always better than %, whether its ED or WD.

Not against the new 100% ED and WD! I want that Ragnarok…

100% wasnt one of the options. :stuck_out_tongue:

5k vs 20% and 5k wins.
5k = 100% in terms of ED provided you have 1 and only 1 5k affix. 100% is better once you add a second + ele dmg.

Better? :smiley:

No! XD

It multiples +5000 WD too. So as long as you have +5000 WD, +100% ED will always be better. But yes, +100% was not one of the options mentioned in this thread. :sunglasses:
