If you factor in gear, things start to change. It then becomes less, but still way above 100.

He was level 32.

I don't think so.

Ah...the tall tales of battle.net still flourish

1) No TO pieces, except gloves:

Skills:

+3 P&B ammy

+2 SoJ's or BK's

+1 Arachnid

+3 P&B circlet

+3 P&B totem

+1 Annihilus

+10 P&B gc's

+4 Death's Web

a total of +27 to P&B, that's sweet. slvl47 Poison nova, maxed synergies: 7312-7484 over 2 seconds.

Well, since we're using a perfect Bramble, TO gloves and 5 perfect poison facets, we get +100% Poison skill damage. That's 200%*~7.3k, bringing us to ~14.7k damage. For clarification, Death's Web: 1 facet, circlet with 2, totem with 2.

Still more, the -resists% stuff. 5 facets gives us -25%, LR gives us -65% (hypothetical) and Death's Web -50%. That's -140%, but AFAIK -100 resist is as low as you can go. That'll double our damage, giving us 29k nova. Without the cap, around 35.5k nova.

2) The "Trang-Oul's way", using wing/gloves/belt:

Skills:

+3 P&B ammy

+2 SoJ's or BK's

+3 P&B circlet

+2 TO wing

+1 Annihilus

+10 P&B gc's

+4 Death's Web

a total of +25 to P&B, a bit less than 1). slvl45 Poison nova, maxed synergies: 6875-7046 over 2 seconds.

The +Poison skill damage % is the same as before, except we'll have 1 facet less due to a set item. 95% bonus then, pushing the nova to ~13.5k damage.

-resists%: 4 facets gives -20%, TO wing gives -25%, Death's Web gives -50% and -65% from LR. -160% resists and the cap kicks in again - ~27k nova. Without the cap, a bit over 35k nova.

Now, I'm 100% sure there's atleast a couple mistakes in my calculations, but I'm extremely confident that even my faulty calculations prove 100k nova isn't possible under any circumstances.

As far as the equipment goes, I doubt the necro would have anywhere near decent resists, making it unviable.

I was under the impression that 100k nova is in no way shape or form possible. Closest is about 16k without lower res, 24k with.

Correct me if i am wrong (i would love to be!)

I am using 47% deaths web with 4/4/ facet

trang wing with 5/5 facet

TO belt and gloves

50% bramble

10 x P and B gcs

maras

2 x soj

all in all, 100k poison nova is absolutely exaggerated, and in no way at all feasible.

somewhatdamaged (big poison nec fan!!!)

100k nova = open bnet. :jig:

+2 B/P Rings

+1 B/P Belt

+3 B/P Helm

+3 B/P Amulet

+3 B/P Head

+10 B/P Charms

+1 B/P Annihilus

+27 B/P skills, slvl47 Poison Nova

+25% GLoves

+50% Bramble

+15% 3x 5/5 Facets

slvl47 Poison Nova = 7312-7484 over 2 seconds

+90% Poison Skill damage = 13892-14219 over 2 seconds

-100% Resists = 27784-28439 over 2 seconds

Oh i am also using crown of ages with 2 x 5/5 poison facets as well.. forgot to mentionMelFrank said:

trang gloves

2 sojs

3 p &b amu

arachnids

+3 psn nova white wand

+3 p&b head with +3 psn nova ( is this possible? i could have sworn i saw one)

perfect bramble

10 p&b skillers

1 annihilus

+3 p & b circlet circlet /w p facet

that should come to 26 p &b skills, 29 to psn nova, and ~90% psn damage ( 50 from bramble, 25 from trangs, 15 from facets in the head, and the circlet ) and -60 resists from lower resists, that would be more wouldnt it?

Bramble is +50% poison damage (if lucky like me lol), 3 x trang is -25% enemies POISON RES which works differently i think.

All in all, deaths web is the ONLY way to go for max poison nova damage, anything else is not as good, no matter how awesome the white wand

still, 100k PN = open bnet. :jig:

wouldn't be that hard imaging a inv full of sc that gave +5 to all skillsSlayer193 said:Maybe 50k, but 100k? yeah right.
