Does poison and elemental damage work with deadly strike and critical strike? Ok well I was reading a guide on another forum on a how to make a bowazon. Inside the guide it said that if you use any charms with lightning or poison damage it will negate the effect of critical strike and deadly strike. Now there was a big heated argument in the guide about this. Some people said yes it negates it while other said no it doesn't. Well the guide was poorly written I felt by someone who didn't have the slightest clue on how to make a bowazon so I felt someone here at diabloii would know the answer. Basically they said in the guide that if you use any poison damage or lightning damage on a bowazon it would negate the effect.
