    How does +max damage apply to the bow's final damage?

    How do +max damage jewels or +max damage charms apply to bow damage? Are they applied to the base and then multiplied by the ED%? Is the ED% applied first then the max damage is simply added on?

    IIRC they are multiplied by off-weapon ED but not on-weapon ED. I.e., the formula goes (weapon damage*all ED)+(off-weapon damage*off-weapon ED).

    Also, if you socket a +max damage jewel IN a weapon, it gets applied AFTER the on-weapon ED bonus, so the calculation goes the same.

    Someone can correct me if I'm wrong anywhere here though...

    thanks droid, that helps a lot

    what are examples of off weapon ED? skill based, laying of hands, fortitude, things of that nature?

    Yeah, you got them all.

    [edit] Oh, and stats as well, but Arreat Summit's formula covers for that.

    off weapon ED is anything that gives +% enhanced damage that isnt your weapon :)

    So gear, stats (dex for bows), skill, and auras: Might, Conc, Fanat
