Beserk and DS/CB

After skimming through AS / F&F compendium / NF's Bes guide and a few other posts, I still haven't found an answer to my questions - Does Beserk multiply the damage AFTER deadly/critical (if rolled) is applied to the damage? I am guessing yes, the DS/CS is applied before it is multiplied by Bes. I also assume that off-weapon %dam from str, skill, etc. is applied before the multiplication by beserk.

Second, from my reading, CB applies (as non-physical damage for me in terms of leech, IM) first and is NOT multiplied by Bes.

Am I correct?

PS - I am an SP (low-twink, but not by choice...) HC Conc Barb trying to decide between Headstriker (100% DS) and some other weapons, concerned with my ability to deal with IM/PI situations.

PPS - And I was assuming that DS/CS was applied AFTER all of the physical damage modifiers were applied, such as Str/Skill/etc. This is also correct, right?

Thanks,

you can consider zerk to be physical right up to the last point where its just converted to magic. yes ds/crit/str/ed% add to it.

cb is not an applied damage as such but more a modifier of the opponents life so no you dont 'multiply' it by zerk or any other attack
