    Facets on characters

    There are 4 types of facet
    1. Lightning
    2. Poison
    3. Fire
    4. Cold

    And the funny thing is that the plus damage % to the elemental is not applicable to to all characters in their skill trees like for example

    Barb - No lightning skills, No poison skill, no fire and no cold skills in their skill trees

    Amazon - Has lightning and poison

    Sorc - has fire, cold and lightning

    Sin - has lightning traps and poison skills

    Necro - has poison skills only

    Druid - has fire skills

    Barb is losing out? Am i missing anything here?

    The jewels have -3% to -5% enemy resistance, so any elemental dmg on items used on barb would do more dmg, if only a small amount.

    I'm not sure, and Arreat is not specific on this, whether or not the "% chance to cast" mods that deal elemental dmg (on ammys for instance) are affected by the +% to skill dmg on the facets. After all, 7% chance to cast lvl 16 lightning, or whatever, is a bonus based on skills.

    Can anyone enlighten us on this ?

    Well, to start off with, the skills you listed aren't accurate piggiz.

    Amazon has fire and ice as well as lightning and poison

    Sin has Fire and cold as well as poison and lightning

    Druid has cold and poison as well as fire

    Paladin has fire, lit, and ice.

    Here's the question that I'm curious about, necros summon mages who use elemental skills, are enemies effected by facets with them? I assume not, but you never know. Or an iron golem made out of an elemental weapon with a facet in it... That really makes me curious.
