hidden grief bonus?

Is there some hidden bonus with using grief?

Cuz i was using a lightsabre before and my dmg was 1k-1.6k w/ max fanat, scarifice, and zeal. now my dmg is only 800-1000 i think. Yet i kill things must more quickly with grief.

If anyone can answer this that would be great.

p.s. is it weird that i got this grief in a pb for free? its low i think...31ias dont remember plus 2 dmg.

thanx in advance

Yes (sort of); the Grief damage does not get correctly reflected in the character screen, but it's there. Rest assured that your Greif is doing huge damage. You are probably doing at least 5K damage in reality.

Probably some person sees that 1k damage, and got pissed off and throw it to you. If that is the case, lucky for you, and foolish of him.

no the game name was "grief pbs ft" so i entered trying to get a low one for an ohm and some other stuff. The guy showed me 4 different ones...i asked which was the lowest and then made my offer. the guy said ok, but i didnt have enuff room, then like a second later he says "on ground" i look, drop some junk and grab it. the guy says nothing. i rearrange my items grab everything except some cruddy unique, thank the guy and leave.


was kinda weird for one guy to have 4 grief pbs must have cost a ton

Or he had them from last ladder. Good job getting that man! if you want to see how much damage you are actually doing...

Add up your strength, the %ed from any auras/skills you're using, and any %ed from items (jewels, forti, etc). Divide this total by 100, then add 1. This is your real enhanced damage.

Then take the base damage of your sword (probably 33-35 unless it's a sup phase blade), and add the Grief's +damage to it. Also add any +min / +max damage from items, like the 15-25 on war travs or the +5 min on bloodfists. This is your real weapon damage.

Now, just multiply your real weapon damage by your real enhanced damage. That'll tell you how much damage you're REALLY doing with that grief.

Those not in the know will always laugh at the Grief. In reality a "crappy" Grief pb can even outperform a near high end ebotdz.

There ya go. That'll give you the correct damage for items with modifiers like grief (which includes astreon's, stonecrusher, etc.). I crunched some numbers before choosing a grief pb for my ladder zealot - I'd be doing a good bit less damage with any other 1h weapon, even an ebotdz or edc (and of course, I easily hit 4fpa - with high enough fanat, any ias grief will get you to 4fpa). Grief is just about the best zealot weapon there is.
