    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.

    Poison/bone GCs.
    Remember your damage is higher then listed with all that -resist.

    It can be pretty complicated.
    You can calculate it by novaing monsters and seeing if it kills fast enough for your liking.

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

    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

    A couple of days ago I did some example calculations on Poison Damage and how -% Poison Resist affects it for Tengu in a thread here http://www.rpgforums.net/showthread.php?t=144061

    Plug your own numbers in to get what you will do.

    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.

    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
