    fortitude on hammerdin

    maybe just a silly question. Does the +300% Enhanced Damage work on BM or it just works on physical damage?

    BM? Maybe you mean BH? No, only physical damage is enchanted by the ED% mod. Besides, it does not have +skills, teleport or strength.

    Whenever the word 'damage' is referenced in the game without specifying a type, it's assumed to be physical, such as 'Damage Reduced by *.' The only exception is a bug in the aura Concentration, which seems to affect only Blessed Hammer and no other non-physical ability. It's suspected Blizzard could've removed this bug, if it were one, but has chosen not to.

    Fortitude's enhanced damage modification is treated as off-weapon damage and added to other forms of such, like skill damage, jewels/runes in non-weapons, and so on. Because of this, none of it is used to 'roll-up' the damage of Vengeance, which uses the same base and is added at the same time.

    Fortitude is the second body option in the Blessed Hammer/Charge combination, and works well in lieu of Enigma, especially when the bug with using Charge rears its ugly head. It still gives very good bonuses and is an all-around nice armor to have, and leaving the game can fix the bug upon re-entering.

    Concentration affecting Blessed Hammer is not a bug. It's been around on D2 ever since 1.04-1.05 or so, and Blizzard stated that it is an intended feature. Even though Conc description is not updated to reflect this.
