    good site:

    http://66.98.154.13/Skills.html

    holy fire: 643-713 to attack
    107-119 aura damage

    holy freeze: 998-1025 to attack
    199-205 aura damage

    holy shock: 1-3931 to attack
    4-655 aura damage

    they're all 16.6 yards in radius.
    this is with 20 points in all skills + synergies.

    wow. why does holy fire damage suck so much. Then again why do they all suck so much... thats 60 points. Look at hammers with 60 points. unresistable by almost every monster(save a couple in the whole game in hell) and way more damage... not even includeing conc. That makes me sick. GJ bliz.

    Because Blizz is stupid obviously :cheesy:
    But I think Holy Fire sucks so much more is because it's a lvl 6 skill. W/o salvation.. you'd have max Holy Fire and Resist done like at lvl 42...

    Thanks Icarus, looks like Holy Freeze is the best for norm cows then.. I think I read somewhere that they have ~350 hp in norm?


    Does anyone know how synergies are affected with +skill items?

    If you are trying to run cows repeatedly and don't want to kill the king use holy shock since the king is immune to lightning. The 1-3931 damage averages to about 1900 added to attack and the 1-655 aura damage averages to about 325 per aura strike. At slvl 20 holy shock has a 16.6 yard radius which IIRC is just shy of the entire screen width wise so you should be alright to run normal cows with just the aura.


    @K-lined Synergizes are only counted from hard skill points. So say you have 20 in resist lightning and 20 in holy shock

    you get 1-156 in aura damage from the 20 holy shock you then get 12% * slvl resist lightning so 240% which takes your aura damage to 1-530

    say you use +5 all skills so you would be at 25 resist lightning and 25 holy shock

    you then get 1-212 in aura damage from the 25 holy shock and then you get 12% * slvl resist lightning so 240% which takes your aura damage to 1-720

    Don't forget that the major strength of Holy Freeze isn't its damage (though that's none too bad...) - it's the 50% slow.

    //edit : Btw - Holy Freeze is safer in cows... (not that you'll be in danger). But it has a better min damage, and the slow helps too. You'll need only two 'pings' before you kill a herd of cows.

    And you should be able to avoid the Cow King easily enough.

    Holy Fire damage rises faster at higher levels and its synergy has a bigger impact... i wonder if with a lot of + to skills (4x+) and a runeword caddy with +3 HF it can deal more damage than the others.
