    Socket advice....

    Hi,

    I have a LvL94 druid doing max(?) damage now with 10 ele gcs in iventory but........i have a sheal in my Jalal's and a Um in my SShield for the FHR and the all res.
    I have another Jalal,s and SS so the question is:can i do more damage if a put 2 "40/15max" jewels in both the uniques??
    I think i can handle in one or other way with the loose of the FHR and the all res.

    So.........will my Tornado and Hurricane do more DMG with the jewels?

    Thx.

    those jewels only apply for physical damage (swing/shoot) not a spell

    As nice as that would be nothing can help tornado, even a cold facet would only help your hurricaine since nado is physical.

    The only way to inflict more damage is using a necro wand with charges and cast on your opponent amp damage curse. Thats sick, though.

    No. There is no such thing as a wand with amp damage charges (unless it's some hacked item on bnet/open). This "wand with amp damage" rumor was around even during 1.09.

    The only item with amp charges is:

    The Gavel Of Pain
    Martel de Fer
    Two-Hand Damage: (152-170) To (257-285) (204.5-228.5 Avg)
    Required Level: 45
    Required Strength: 169
    Base Weapon Speed: [20]
    +130-160% Enhanced Damage(varies)
    Adds 12-30 Damage
    +50% Damage To Undead
    5% Chance To Cast Level 1 Iron Maiden When Struck
    5% Chance To Cast Level 1 Amplify Damage On Striking
    Level 8 Amplify Damage (3 Charges)
    Attacker Takes Damage of 26
    Indestructible

    A Wind Druid could also use this to increase his Tornado damage:

    Spellsteel
    Bearded Axe
    Two-Hand Damage: 55 To 129 (92 Avg)
    Required Level: 39
    Required Strength: 37
    Range: 2
    Durability: 35
    Base Weapon Speed: [0]
    +165% Enhanced Damage
    10% Faster Cast Rate
    Requirements -60%
    Regenerate Mana 25%
    +100 To Mana
    Level 12 Firestorm (60 Charges)
    Level 10 Holy Bolt (100 Charges)
    Level 3 Decrepify (30 Charges)
    Level l Teleport (20 Charges)
    Magic Damage Reduced By 12-15(varies)

    But I think an Act2 Merc with a Reaper's Toll or ctc AmpDmg weapon would be easier.

    I would doubt it since that is a skill all to itself not a modifier to the monster.

    Amp damage and decrepify are the only ways to increase tornado damage, well only ways I am aware of less more +skills of course. ctc amp damage is everywhere but there are few charges of amp damage around. I would look to get ctc for your merc.
