    Cold arrow - Fire arrow question

    Both Cold and Fire arrow converts some damage to elemental damage. Is this elemental damage or do cold arrow convert damage to cold and fire arrow convert damage to fire?

    Thay also say that Cold arrow only do half the regular damage. Do they mean half of the physical damage after it converted to elemental damage or before?

    Thx to anyone who knows.

    Cold and fire convert a percentage of your physical damage into cold or fire damage respectively. Cold/Lightning/Fire damage is elemental, though if you were meaning magic damage, that's not the case.

    I have not noticed cold arrow doing lowered physical damage- I seem to remember that being the case at some point, but at least in the 1.10 patch, it appears to do full damage.

    Is cold arrow's damage conversion applied after things such as deadly strike, crittical strike and amplify damage?

    The cold/fire/magic arrow conversion is applied when you fire the bow, rather than when the arrow strikes. Therefore, the damage conversion is applied to your physical damage after ed bonuses and the like, but before amp damage, or critical strike, which modify the physical damage when your arrow strikes.

    Yeah... but the skill description says that cold and fire arrow do only half of their damage. I'm confused also about this half thing so I never gave these skills more than 1 skill point.
