    Harmony + Strafe Question

    So I've gathered up the runes to make a Harmony for my untwinked strafer, and I'm looking for a base, which will turn up eventually. Then I get to thinking that the 3/4 Strafe damage penalty may be similar to the penalty for Blade Fury; that is, the elemental damage will be affected as well.

    I'm still planning on making the Harmony, as it is much better than the rather mundane collection of rare bows I've found to date, but am I losing 25% of all that lovely elemental damage? I'll have some speed issues, but I'm counting on the Countess to cough up a few more runes for a Treachery + some other stuff for reasonable, albeit not great, speed.

    Of course after I make it, a WWS or Lycander's will drop, but you gotta play 'em where they lie, so to speak.

    Thanks,

    CM

    AFAIK, the 3/4 penalty whacks the elemental damage too. At least according to the LCS, it does.

    I wouldn't let that stop me from using Harmony, though. It's still a nice bow.

    Unfortunately, yes, it does cut the elemental damage too. It's still very much worth making, and even if you find a better bow, it's still good for valk pre-buff and running fast on switch.

    If you have some elemental damage charms, the damage of those gets cut too?

    Yep, it's all damage, rather than just weapon damage like the description says. If you take a charm with 8-12 fire damage and put it on your zon, the LCS Strafe damage will only increase by 6-9.
