    Lightning Facet Question

    How exactly do lightning facets work? For example, a fully snerygized Lightning with no points in Lightning Mastery deals 2000 dmg. With Level 20 Lightning Mastery giving 300% more dmg, this jumps to 6000 dmg. If i add a 5/5 facet to my equipment, does the dmg increase by: A) 2000*((300+5)%) or B) (2000*300%)*(100+5)% ? Thanks for any info in advance.

    It will be 2000*(300+5)%*(100-R+5)%

    where R is the monster resist
    for example (Damage without the facet will be in brackets)
    if R = 0, final damage will be 6450 [6000], or 7.5% increase in damage
    if R = 20, final damage will be 5185 [4800], or 8% increase in damage
    if R = 75, final damage will be 1830 [1500], or 22% increase in damage

    Hmm from what i remember isnt the damage from facet calculated with the basedamage first, meaning added to synergies? I always use this and it also gives the right amount (apart from the added +xx% damage from the facet, since i am not sure if this is calculated with mastery or synergy).

    Fully synergized Lightning.
    lvl 20 Nova
    lvl 20 Charged Bolt
    lvl 20 Lightning
    lvl 20 Chain Lightning
    lvl 20 Mastery

    lvl 20 Lightning damage: 1-293
    Synergy damage added: 480%
    Mastery damage added: 278%
    Added damage from Facet: 5%
    Added -xx%res from facet: -5%

    base damage * (1+4.85) * (1+2.78) * (1-(R-0.05)) = full damage

    0 R: 1-293 * (1+4.85) * (1+2.78) * (1-(R-0.05)) = 23-6803
    20 R: 1-293 * (1+4.85) * (1+2.78) * (1-(R-0.05)) = 18-5507
    50 R: 1-293 * (1+4.85) * (1+2.78) * (1-(R-0.05)) = 12-3563

    Whenever you add -xx%res from any kind of item you damage will greatly increase compared to using none of those values.

    p.s: [FLS]prozerran why do you add the -xx% res to the resistance of the monster??? It should be subtracted and then subtracted from 1 or 100%, dependeing in which way you approach the formula.

    Or to answer your question: A. It simply stacks with lightning mastery.

    Oh sorry I missed the part where he says "fully synergized".

    I put "+" because it's something like (1-(R-0.05)) = (1-R+0.05)

    lol I'm a math grad. I'm sure I got that one right.
