    The act 1 Piercing Exploding Crushing Fire Rogue

    Act 1 Fire Rogue:

    Weapon: Upgraded Kuko Shakaku with Ber Rune
    Armor: Rattlecage w/15% ias jewel
    Helm: Guillame's Face w/15% ias jewel

    This gives explosive arrows with 50% chance to pierce and 80% chance of crushing blow.

    What do you think? Is this an effective way of using the fire rogue to help out a melee char. Hitting groups with crushing blow seems like it can be good.

    Pretty sure CB doesn't work for the "explosion".

    Also, isn't CB checked for each item apart? So it's not 80% chance, it's X chance, if it fails, another XX chance, and if that fails another XXX chance?

    Unfortunately, you only get the visual effect of the exploding arrow on the Rogue merc, not the actual spash damage.

    Even though in this case is it's not relevant (since the splash damage doesn't work at all on the merc) CB doesn't carry over to the splash damage from exploding arrows, on any character.

    Mulitple items with CB add their chances together, so using Ribcracker, Guilliams, and Gore Riders will give you 100% CB if I'm remembering the actual amounts of CB on them correctly.

    CB, as well as pretty much everything else, hard cap's at 95%, doesn't it?

    Yeah, but we're still only talking about 1/20th damage from a lucky arrow. That's a lot of hits. Never much liked the Rogue's AR, anyway.
