    Highest Damage/Second Melee?

    I have been seeing some crazy damage builds lately, and so I am posting to see what people have been able to achieve. I am not counting crushing blow or deadly/critical strike, although they are obviously very helpful mods. Melee also doesnt have to be just physical, but I am not counting poison, only instantaneous attack damages. (If you have some massive damage build, please include a brief equipment inventory also)

    Going for highest damage/second that you have actually achieved or seen, not that is possible with perfect gear. :)

    the most powerful melee attack ive seen to date is a duel dream enchantress that did about 66,000 max damage. Used the basic equipment, dream helm and shield and then enchantress gear. Best ive seen damage wise, although playing through it wasnt too impressive.

    I really wonder how you can reach 66k damage with Dream stuff :scratch: ?
    Even a level 30 Holy Shock aura with +30 to all skills barely reaches 5k / 6k...

    lightning mastery.

    my dream sorc hit 36k i believe with no skillers. the only problem really is attack rating, i'm going to remake her using steel gc's of vita.

    But if you count damage/second, I also think that you should keep in mind what an awful minimum damage those dual dream sorcs have.
    Ok, not awful, but there wont be much more than 2-3k, which comes from enchant.
    The average damage is nice though

    The highest damage/second probably goes to 4 fpa fireclaws bear. With 15-16k fireclaw dmg and extremely fast attack speed that is continuous 4 fpa (not 9/4/4/4 like zeal or fury where first hit is 9 fpa). Also minimum damage on fireclaws is almost equal to maximum.

    bear sorcs can hit at 5 fpa.

    and the average of 3k and 50 k is still like 26k. :O

    if you go for top damage
    me and a friend have made an assasin
    on europ sc ladder

    and she reached 93k on dragon tail
    (charged up tiger strike)
    with maxed strenth + skills
    and many martial arts skillers

    but offcourse she has low speed and close to zero life

    (her name was SoL_onehitkill) --> kill or get killed in 1 hit :lol:

    Poison explosion can do over 120k. Over like 30 seconds, but I believe it's the highest possible number you can get on the...screen with the damage...it's been a while since I played, ok?

    Lets take it other way, what could be the fastest time for completing all quests on the Act 5 Hell on 8 player game being alone, but tweaked with all legal possible items in the game?
    About the max damage on damage screen, I was quite happy about 22k with very fast attack speed on my pala using near perf BOTD, but I never tried going for pure max damage.

    Charged strike can do incredible total damages if all bolts hit, before the latest runewords i think the max was something like 88k that ive seen. Combine with -enemy res and your having fun.
    Anyway, im pretty certain a MA sin like demever did would be one of the best for damage over a length of time, providing you can find IAS and use BoS.

    we will see if these ladder only items can pit up against the stuff only on NL ;)
