psn nova dmg question

hmm whats the avg psn nova dmg. i just maxed it and 1 synergy w/ 1 remaining. i need to xfer a +2 necro ammy and a deaths web i just traded for. my dmg , from wut someone told me, should me in the 10ks. instead my thing is 2279-2411. im assuming with all the +skills il get with the 2 items, it would go a lot higher. deaths webs = 2/2/47

12k is like the perfect set-up.
but why is mine so LOW! cmon i have trang set and deaths web. all im missing is 2 sojs and necro ammy. which could probably bring it to 4-4.5k if i max my last synergy it w/ ammy and soj. it would go to like 5-5.5k. how in the hell do u get it to 10k or higher.

btw psn nova is at 30, psn corpse is at 30 and psn dagger is at 16-20 i believe.

It can be pretty complicated.
You can calculate it by novaing monsters and seeing if it kills fast enough for your liking.
well i kill pretty fast... i have -76% to enemy resistance (also use lower resist which inflicts -52% not included) then i have 28% to psn skill dmg. and since i've been lvling, my pn went to 2800s-3300s
 
lvl 46Pnova / P dagger / P explosion

Pnova dmg: 9221-9445
Lower Resist: -62 res
Deaths Web: -54 res

and how do ppl get 12k Pnova..? lmfao.. impress me please. if you need to know my gear setup (i dont know why you would) i'd be happy to post.

They're calculating it with the -enemy poison resists from DW and LR, eg. doubled damage at best.

can someone exactly post the math on doing these calculation. how u go about getting the total w/ -enem resist and + psn skill dmg

you should use trang gloves, they add 25% poison skill dmg, that should make the dmg more reasonable

btw, good poison nova dmg without sacrificing too much stuff is around 8k

i plugged in my numbers and i got 5947-6250 dmg. but how does +psn skill damage fit into this calculation. cause i deal 28% to psn skill dmg.
I guess you have Trang's Gloves and a Poison Facet to get + 28%. Your character screen will show the Nova damage with the 28% already factored in ... which you can test by just removing the gloves to see the base damage. If you are calculating what the damage would be in future (with more synergies maybe) then the +28% simply boosts by that amount.

The problem with working out the actual damage poison does is knowing the monster's resistance and how much your -% restance is reducing it and hence boosting damage. My calculations show how this can be done.

lol.. says i would have 17,285 Pnova dmg.
should i umm... remake necro. he lvl 78 w/ max sm, max rs, max pn, max pc, 20 pd (w/items) , 1 lower resist (w/o items). 3921-4088 poison nova. wth should i be doing =\. i added a +3 poison ammy. how is it that ur getting it that high. i have 12+ skills for psn. right now its at 32. i just dont understand why mine isnt going as high even w/ all the items i have.

If you have max SM and SW why bother to remake your Necro? You should be able to waltz through anything in Hell. Your Nova is doing 4000 and should drop most non immune monsters in 2 novas, so what is the problem? ... you have a wall of skellies to hide behind. The maximum damage your Nova does is not really important if you are killing effectively. You could spend the remaining skill points in PD to increase the synergy for PN but frankly, I think you do not have a problem...

Only way to get a 12k + poison nova is by using bramble. My nova does approx 13450 (not 100% sure as i am at work) but i use

Crown of Ages with 2 x 5/5 poison facets
50% bramble
47% deaths web with 4/4 (so -51% poison res)
Trang shield with um
Trang belt
Maras
2 x SOJ
trang gloves
10 x P and B gcs
( i chose an um instead of another poison facet as you can still get nailed on hell by gloams with poor resists)

So with my level 17 Lower res and taking into account all poison items etc etc i should 'technically' be doing about 24k

Good luck with the build
