    potiondin?

    would the fire dmg from the holy fire aura from dragon armour/shield add to the explosion dmg from throwing potions? has anyone tries such a build?

    I would. :grin:

    I edited a paladin into singleplayer with an armor that had slvl 1 Holy Fire. Slvl 1 because we want to see if the potion's exploding damage is hitting monsters and not the aura itself.

    Next I maxed Resist Fire and Salvation to slvl 99. With Holy Fire at its slvl of 1 even with almost 200 points in synergies Holy Fire only adds about 25-75 damage, which is roughly what an Oil Potion does (26-64).

    So by comparison an Oil potion with Holy Fire (if the damage is added) should do about double damage when compared to a non-Holy Fired Oil potion. Right?

    Well it didn't, sorry man; I tested about 500 potion throws against Reanimated Horde held back by a high-level Bone Wall (to keep them out of Holy Fire range) and the Oil Potions seemed to do 100% of the damage.

    I realize that was a lot of build up for a let down, but at least now we know, and knowing is half the battle.

    G.I. Jooooeeee... :rolleyes:
