    +Dmg items and hunger skill question

    Hi all! Ok i am fiddling with an idea of a strange bear build that uses a grief pb and hunger for pvm. Now hunger skill has -75% damage according to AS. Is this strictly physical, elemental or both? Also how does +dmg from grief, asterons, etc come into play - i.e does it still do -75%dmg still? I am curious as to when this -75% dmg is applied - ed from skill, total final damage, etc? Thks in advance to anyone who could enlighten me :D

    the -75% reduces the final dmg, including elemental. Damage +x is no exception.

    I just got done doing that with a 40% ias grief phase. I didnt like it as much as I liked a carrion wolf. I thought I could stand in the middle of a pack of monsters and hunger away. Not true. I was also hoping that the very large amout of life leech would work in duels....

    That wasnt true eather.

    I think you should have much better luck with a titan wolf using feral rage than bear using hunger. Hunger is strictly for leaching life from weak monsters.

    So your saying feral rage life leech works in duels? If I can get the damage high enuff? I will study it and post a tread about it.

    Tried it, and honestly leech is handicapped way too much to see the benefit of leech that you would from say life tap or even a .09 duel. For PvM feral still works wonders, and at this point the only use I see for feral rage is minion leech and frw to catch casters in pvp.

    I have tried to experiment how fast a wolfbarb attacks/leech by slapping on a wolfhowl + eth oath bb on my mfbarb and with lvl 8 feral rage attained from +6feral wolfhowl+highlords+skullders (4-40% leech) and life tap triggering (from dracs) it seem he leeched big time but i do not think it could work in PvP (and might be BM too) Wonder how it'll be like if one slapped on 2*11% ll crafted blood rings, life tap and feral rage's innate life leech though hehe Also it is commonly known that the feral attack rates for wereforms using this calculator:

    http://students.washington.edu/akrinke/wereformadvanced.html

    are inaccurate - is this a fact or has it been updated? One has to input 'standard' attack to calculate feral rage fpas for wolfbarb and an oath bb hits 8 fpa while inputting 'feral rage' it states 6 fpa (which seemed more like what i was hitting at) :(
