    Holy Shock + Nova stack?

    So, I heard that if you have a bow like Kuko that fires explosive arrows, and you have holy fire going, then the holy fire damage will stack onto the explosion damage, that is, affecting everyone hit by it, not just the main target.

    Was wondering if you have something like Warshrike (which has ctc Nova), and you have holy shock going, would the holy shock attack damage affect everything hit by the Nova, as well?

    If so then a dual dream thrower paladin with conviction might be something fun to try out :)

    Thanks for any information!

    AFAIK, only attack skills made with weapons/arrows can add elemental damage (doesn't matter in this case if the elemental damage comes from holy aura, enchant or gear). Nova is a spell so it can't stack with holy shock.

    AFAIK explosive arrows are the exception in adding fire dmg to their explosion and it is not possible with nova.

    Thanks for the info guys. Back to the drawing board, I suppose.

    Yes, though an unsynergised holy freeze aura on an amazon is going to have pretty low damage anyway.

    What about Ice, SLvl10-12 Resist Cold, and Freezing Arrow charges (my Paladin Trinitar)?

    Yes. Freezing arrow charges can appear on gloves and bows, but since you'll have an Ice Bow you'll end up with level 2 freezing arrow charges from the gloves, with around 20 charges.

    Edit: The freezing arrow charges level and count is going from memory, as I haven't actually sat down to work out the maximum charges that you could get with an ilvl 99 pair of gloves.
