    New Player Question - Do weapon and armor abilities stack?

    I have played only single player. Am new to the game. Have found a weapon and gloves with same ability:

    1. The Redeemer (Weapon): +217% damage to demons
    2. Laying of Hands (Gloves): +350% damage to demons

    If I wear them both at the same time will my character deal +567% dmg to demons? If yes this seems rather juicy :)

    Thanks for the help!

    Yes, you can simply add it up in that case. However, the calculation of weapon damage in general is more complicated than you might think, you cannot add it to the other %dmg bonuses in the same manner.

    That's an issue for the statistics forum, you should find a thread about weapon damage calculation there which explains it more thoroughly.
