Any items with -resistances, such as Rainbow facets work for all attacks of that element, done by the character wearing the items socketted with the facets. They simply will not work against an immune creature, nor will they help in breaking the immunity. If the creature is not immune (or is no longer immune thanks to conviction or lower resist curse) then the facets function normally.Eh...and what about rainbow facets and whatnot? If items like that simply lower resists, will they work with skills like Zeal and Vengeance? Or will the effects only trigger when I use a regular attack?
No. The +damage from grief will not be factored in the weapon damage that is used to calculate the damage used for vengeance. The +damage from grief will be used to calculate your final physical damage though, after the elemental damage from vengeance is determined.And...how exactly do items like Grief Runewords affect the Vengeance skill? Since it adds 'damage' and doesn't use %Enhanced Damage, will it take my weapon's actual damage to 3XX-4XX? Or does it simply add the damage to my final damage?
You might be better off checking the paladin forum.EDIT: And though this probably doesn't go here, what IS the best weapon for an Avenger, as the elemental damage from Vengeance is based solely on weapon damage? I'm guessing that I should go for the highest one-handed damage weapon....but I don't know.
