Maxing Bowzon PvP damage I was wondering how much damage a Bowzon with "perfect" gear could do, so I did some calculations. Here are the calculations and at the bottom the results. My first priority was to hit the 7 frame IAS breakpoint, my second priority was damage. The formula is from The Arreat Summit: http://classic.battle.net/diablo2exp/basics/characters.shtml Minimum Damage = (Weapon Minimum Damage + (+x To Minimum Damage)) * (1 + StatsBonus + (+x% Enhanced Damage) / 100) * Modifier Maximum Damage = (Weapon Maximum Damage + (+x To Maximum Damage)) * (1 + StatsBonus + (+x% Enhanced Damage) / 100) * Modifier Weapon: Archer Matriarchal Bow [Faith] Amulet: Cat's Eye Left Ring: Ring of Maiming Performance Perfection Right Ring: Ring of Maiming Performance Perfection Belt: Razortail Gloves: Bowyer Vampirebone Gloves of Giant Alacrity Nirvana Boots: War Traveler Helm: Valkyrie Artisan's Deadly Diadem of Maiming Performance Perfection (wut) First socket: Realgar Carmine Jewel of Daring Virility Bliss Second socket: Realgar Carmine Jewel of Daring Virility Bliss Body armor: Scarab Husk [Fortitude] Charms: Fletcher's Grand Charm of Maiming * 10, Annihilus, Hellfire Torch, Red Small Charm of Craftsmanship * 8 IAS: breakpoint is 147 Bow: 110 (Fanaticism Aura) Amulet: 20 (Cat's Eye) Gloves: 20 (rare) Minimum Damage: 20 * 3.3 (Faith) + 8 (Rings) + 12 (Helm) + 25 (Boots) + 20 (Jewels) + 8 (Charms) = 139 Maximum damage: 47 * 3.3 (Faith) + 10 (Razortail Belt) + 26 (rings) + 13 (Helm) + 25 (Boots) + 18 (Jewels) + 48 (Charms) = 295.1 52 Base Strength + 10 (Boots) + 15 (Gloves) + 18 (Jewels) = 95 498 Base Dexterity + 25 (Amulet) + 40 (Rings) + 30 (Gloves) + 15 (Belt) + 20 (Helm) + 18 (Jewels) = 646 20 Base Vitality 15 Base Energy Guided arrow: 20 (Base) + 5 (Bow) + 2 (Gloves) + 2 (Helm) + 14 (Charms) = 43 6.46 (Dexterity) + 2.** (Fanaticism Aura) + .60 (Jewels) + .30 (Helm) + 3.00 (Body Armor) + 2.15 (Guided Arrow) = 15.39 139*15.39 = 2139 minimum damage 295.1*15.39 = 4541 maximum damage Now obviously this isn't practically possible, but I'm wondering if it's theoretically possible or if I made some sort of error. I'm also wondering if higher average guided arrow damage is possible. Is this enough physical damage to OHKO in PvP? EDIT: The wiki is vague on whether cruel can spawn on rares or not. If they can this damage could probably be trumped.
