their lightning attack is double bugged ...

first, all ranged elemental attack now contains their melee phy damage! Yes, ALL.

second, gloam's lightning acts kinda like chain lightning which hit you up to 5 times.

Same as Viper's bonespear (chain bonespear)
Venom Salamander's Poison Bolt (Chain poison bolt) [you can find then in NM Halls of Vaught

BTW I hear that Gloams/Burning Souls / Black Souls also do part physical damage. That's why people with high light resist and/or absorb still die and you still hear complaints about them and see entire parties die to them constantly. I find their stun and extreme range the most annoying.

All I can say is that 3-4 of those SOB's killed my lvl 79 barb yesterday, with 2200 hp, 30 LR, and about 35 MDR...I could not believe it...Still ticks me off...

I do a LOT of hell Baal runs. Get a TGod's, and run your LR up to 85, and you will not have problems with gloams again (except when you run into a boss pack with conviction...in which case expect a quick and painful death).

If you have a melee character like a barb or pally or druid, its nice to have life tap. (ex. dracul's gloves). You and your teammates will get 50% dmg back to life even if you can't leech the enemy =).

You're in WS2 with 30 lightning resist? Please, please tell me you're not a hardcore player.

If I remember it correctly their damage in hell is something like this:

5-190 lightning damage
186-187 lightning damage (not supposed to be there)
40-100 physical damage (not supposed to be there)

According to the other post, that equates to about 400-600 damage in hell with resists at zero.
Your post is in that same ballpark.

I never knew you could hit more than once... that's interesting but it makes sense. It seems that whenever I take my skelemancer down there, those lightning streams are all aimed right at me, and same goes for the bone spears. I was wondering if they were somehow aimed directly at me instead of the minions. I suppose Blizz made the graphics simpler so we didn't get lagged out by a pack of souls casting chain lightning all at once.
