You're in big trouble.

But I'm in good mood today... I'll give you 3 pgems for that crappy death web. Don't know why, I guess I'll just put it into the "people, don't use items like this" exhibition.

Seriously, when did all items with non-perfect stats suddenly turn crappy? Sure, I'll exchange somethiing I'm wearing for a better version if I happen to find one, but I would say you've got a Death Web, so use it --- unless you have a better weapon for your poison necro available.

Yup, I wish I had something that would give -40% to poison resistance. It's pretty bad in hell when lower resist doesn't lower it enough, lol.

like the guy said, use it til you find a better one. I'm still looking to find one period!

If it was only a +1 with the -40 then you would worry...but a +2 -40 isn't bad and all you need to do is put a 5/5 poison facet in it to make it even better.

If Andarial dropped you a cracked short sword that by some odd coding error had -40% enemy poison resistance, it'd still be better for a venomancer than a +3 poison nova white or blackbogs (seriously).

Be happy man! Even a 2/1/40 with a 3/3 facet would increase your damage immensely.

Considering that you either found or traded for one of the hardest items in the game...you should be very happy with it...no matter the resists on it.

Even a non-perfect one is good for pvp.

What kind of damage can you expect from your poison nova. I see damages of like 20k in poison explosion so why is nova so low?

20k is actually considered low for explosion, but you have to take into consideration the damage/second.

Poison nova and pexplosion have roughly the same average damage/second, nova just has a lower poison duration. The reason why nova is generally considered superior is because it's easier to hit a monster with (the range of explosion is pathetic in 1.10) and does not require a corpse to be cast.

DWeb is the most powerful possible p nova enhancer in any Novamancer's arsenal, regardless of quality, except maybe infinity and in situations where enemies have less than 15% poison resistance, the DWeb still wins. Of course, it would be dumb not to put infinity on your merc anyway.

Here's some examples of gear that breaks resists for you. Death's Web is one of the very best of the resist killers.

Lower Resistance: Cold

Doom Axe/Polearm/Hammer -40-60%
Wizendraw Long Battle Bow -20-35%
Mang Song's Lesson Archon Staff (Ladder Only) -7-15%
Rainbow Facet Jewel -3-5%
Rainbow Facet Jewel -3-5%

Lower Resistance: Fire

Hand of Justice Weapon -20%
Ravenlore Sky Spirit -10-20%
Tal Rasha's Lidless Eye Swirling Crystal (3 items) -15%
Mang Song's Lesson Archon Staff (Ladder Only) -7-15%
Rainbow Facet Jewel -3-5%
Rainbow Facet Jewel -3-5%

Lower Resistance: Lightning

Crescent Moon Axe/Sword/Polearm -35%
Griffon's Eye Diadem (Ladder Only) -15-20%
Tal Rasha's Lidless Eye Swirling Crystal (4 items) -15%
Thunderstroke Matriarchal Javelin (Ladder Only) -15%
Mang Song's Lesson Archon Staff (Ladder Only) -7-15%
Rainbow Facet Jewel -3-5%
Rainbow Facet Jewel -3-5%

Lower Resistance: Poison

Death's Web Unearthed Wand -40-50%
Trang-Oul's Wing Cantor Trophy (3 items) -25%
Rainbow Facet Jewel -3-5%
Rainbow Facet Jewel -3-5%

a deathweb will be my dream......since it is so hard to get, I won't care if it is +1/40% or +2/40%, I am still using that +3 nova wand......

why people are so insist in the perfect equip? i have a dwarf my friend told me it is crap because the fire absorb is only 13%......

Do what I did. Post looking for a crapass one. I traded for Gul and Pul. People are such efffete gear snobs that trading for items with stats closer to the lowest possible reduce in value outrageously. A good DWeb will go for several high runes according to one guy who thought I was lowballing (-res was 40 but it was a +2). Whereas you can get a crappy one for considerably less partially because people are sick of trying to trade the damn things.

Waaaait. Last I knew, conviction doesn't lower enemy poison resistance.

true, conviction only lowers fire/cold/lightning/def.

...and besides, you get your enemies resists down pretty bad just by using LowerResist. With all +skills you probably are aiming for, this along with all -res from deaths web, and hopefully (?) the 3-trang-set-combo (-25%), you will have most enemies vulnerable...

I just found an eth one...
If I don't use it to hit, it won't be damaged and can be used forever right?

OMG...I WANT AN ETH DEATHS WEB :rant:

no, they never lose durability unless you smack stuff with it.

I'm a fan of eth hotos because of that.
