    Thats not the idea, the idea is that you lay traps as you would normally in PvP if someone kills you and is close enough to get zapped by the lightning bolts from all those Facets then they are going to need some serious absorb and resistances to survive that.

    The only link between the jewels and traps is the -LR% which should work.

    It should work, but it doesn't. That's what we are trying to tell you. You might as well have Fire Die facets as Lighting facets since it won't matter at all. Your traps are considered minions and thus do not benefit from any level of -Lightning Resists mods you have on your person. - Sorry I wish it worked differently too.

    The facets work in the following way they add the +% to your chars attacks as well as attacks by things, such as minions or buffing others, that the char cast. The -% resist only works on attacks originating from the char for instance if you have lightning added to your attack through a charm that charms damage would be effected by the +% and -% since it is dealt when your char attacks.

    Some even more bad news according to a couple others that look deeply into the innerworkings of the game, Shade comes to mind, cast on dieing and lvling up do not stack rather only one of them goes off. So having all lightning facets would make your dieing very weak compared to having 1 of each type of facet on.

    I guess to be precise, only Fire Blast and Shock Web work with those facets ? Which is actually good for the build because she can go (partially) naked with only 1 jewel stuck up her b*tt and Dragon Flight to get near opponent or just wait for melee opponent to come. :surprise:

    I heard the % Dmg added works but the - Res doesn't.
    Wait, so you're telling me that only ONE of my facets activates? I don't think so.. My friend has a druid and he has a suicider, he has all different facets but the ones he does have double of go off twice, like 2 poison novas and 2 meteors.

    I don't know.. I guess I'll just have to try it out.
    But 17 lvl 47 Chain Lightnings would be pretty sweet would it not?

    When you have multiple facets of the same type, the effects stack, so two perfect lit death facets would give you:+10% Lightning Skill Da,age, -10% to enemy lightning resistance and a 200% Chance to cast a level 47(?) Chain Lightning on death

    So the 200% chance.. would that mean I get 2 chain lightnings when I die?

    The other thing you need to consider are synergies... a lvl 47 chain lightining isn't all that great when you compare it to a synergized lvl 20 chain lightning + lightning mastery.

    This has been talked about in other threads. I personally like the idea of having a low lvl act 2 merc and putting one of each socket on him and using a sorc to teleport him into position.

    If you buy the merc's lvl is low enough he's free to resurrect!!!

    Of course to be crude and stereotypical I'd have to use the Prayer Merc cause that's just funny.

    so you say you'll only get 1 chain lightning even if u use 17 facets of the same type and yet ive seen 3 meteors fall from the same person after killing them...?

    also ive noticed that when my mate used 3 cold facets i got hit about 9 times by his blizzard when he died...ive used blizzard before and ive NEVER seen one blizzard hit anything more then 4 times.

    tbh im under the impression that multiple "die" facets can stack as like i said 3 meteors from from a sorc when i killed her and when i asked her she said she was using 3 "die" fire facets.

    Ya know... it could be rolled by location... So if you have 2 of the same to die facets on a helm it gives a 200% chance to cast while if you have 2 of the same to die facets one on the armor and one on the helm it might give 2 separate 100% chance to cast.

    May be worth testing...
