    The significance of Open Wound

    Hi

    Recently I've been looking into Open Wounds and just have some question regarding what blizzard state on battle.net. They say that OW stack most of the time? what does this mean?

    I am assuming that according to the OW formula, at level 85 you will do 244 damage per second. If stack mean what I think it mean, when the monster is bleeding and OW kick in one more time, the total damage per second will be 244x2=488/sec. If the damage kick in one more time before the 8 seconds of the 1st and 2nd OW then the damage will be 244x3=732 per second. If this is the case, having OW chance as high as possible can potentially cause ALOT of damage.

    Last question, does OW work with WW?

    Thanks.

    Yes, OW will work with WW, but I don't know how multiple hits affects OW

    I believe the stacking referred to is the percentage chance to inflict open wounds. The damage itself does not stack I think.

    You are right. I tested this last night in single player with > 60% OW, I am expecting the monster health to be drain rapidly, instead I see just really slow heath drain, most noticeable when monster is near death.

    So, OW suck.
