    what happens when min damage > max damage

    some unique/set items add + min damage, and a weapon's min damage could be bigger than max, what happens then?

    Max damage is increased so it´s 1 more than min damage. A good example is Isenhart´s Lightbrand, which has +10 min damage. A regular Broad Sword does 7-14 damage. Isenhart´s does 17-18 damage.

    aren't there vLLD builds that use nothing but +min damage jewels to take advantage of this?

    It is only for melee weapon damage that minimum weapon damage >= maximum weapon damage results in maximum weapon damage = minimum weapon damage +1. Note that the character screen incorrectly applies this condition to final damage when it only applies to weapon damage: if you equip a Dagger with 1-5 base damage, add 49 Minimum Damage and apply +900% off-weapon Enhanced Damage, the character screen displays 500-501 damage but 500-510 damage (based on 50-51 weapon damage) is actually applied.

    The character also incorrectly applies this condition to missile damage: if you equip a Javelin with 6-14 base throw damage, add 44 Minimum Damage and apply +900% off-weapon ED, the character screen once again displays 500-501 damage but 500-140 damage (based on 50-14 weapon damage) is actually applied. In this case, when minimum damage > maximum damage the minimum becomes the maximum and the maximum becomes the minimum, so 14-50 weapon damage results in 140-500 damage.

    Your max dmg will automatically be increased by 1 damage more than your minimum damage if your minimum damage is higher than your maximum damage.

    Thanks OD, that is something I never knew before.

    Toss, swish. <- Sound of me throwing plans for a min-damage WWS strafer in the trash.

    Does anyone know if the elemental damage thing is also a LCS-thing, or if min damage eats elemental damage?

    Expanding on ODs example with the dagger:
    Same situation, but add 1-40 lightning damage. LCS will show 501-502 damage.

    The character screen displays 501-502 damage but 500-510 physical and 1-40 lightning damage is actually applied, for a total of 501-550 damage (to targets with no Resist %).
