    To what type of damage does + DEMON / UNDEAD damage add to?

    Hi! I found a Laying for Hands gloves last night :) from a nightmare baal drop and would like to know if the massive additional damage it does to demons will add to my druid's hurricane damage. I also want to know if my hammerdin will kill demons faster if I decided to use Laying on Hands on him. I am using magefist for the FCR but the massive increase of Laying of Hands will justify switching to it, especially during boss runs.

    To what type of damage would a character benefit from items that add % damage to demons and undead. Is it strictly for physical damage or does it also include magical and elemental damage?

    Thanks for your time and advice.

    Nope.

    Nope.

    Ed% vs Demons/undead is counted as skill ed%, and only physical dmg will benefit from it.
    Characters that run mainly in demon (eg. meph) areas benefit from LoH a LOT.

    Thanks for your reply, RTB.

    AWWW. I thought I was getting lucky. I was already doing the damage computation on my druid and hammerdin. If Laying of Hands did work I would be pounding massive damage with my current 5K hammers and 1K hurricanes. Oh well. I guess I have to go back looking for those +1 skill charms. :(

    Does that mean that Deadly Strike/Critical Strike will also be multiplied?

    Chaldan, yes.

    Actually, it'll be Deadly Strike/Crit Strike multiplying the Demon/Undead Ed%. For more specifics (Ex: Damage formula) look at the stickied thread started by Dracoy at the top of the forum.

    Lots of people underestimate the IK maul damage seeing that it only deals around 370, but when dealing against Demon or Undead, it is actually alot higher :) add in the Laying of Hand it will go even higher.

    Add in a Chains of Honor, and "Whoa, look out bosses!"
