    Yep, but the +% damage just adds to fire mastery so the damage increase is minimal. If you give us more info on what the sorc is used for (melee/bow sorc or only enchants others) we can explain exactly how it will affect your damage.

    Level 50 enchant with maxed warmth gives 933-1076, so +5% from the facet will give you another 50 damage :p

    Thanks. Seems like a waste of a facet for such a small change in total damage. I'll keep in my back pocket for now.

    Remember that you don't need a perfect facet for this. -x/+5 facets are relatively inexpensive. They're what I used last ladder season for my enchantress.

    If there's a specific "main" character you regularly use this sorc to enchant, you'd be better suited giving the main a -5% facet. They'll benefit from the -EFR much more than they would from the +Fire Damage.

    Yeah I hope that is 3/15 fire enchant ormus because I was thinking you could use a sorc specifically for enchanting melee chars and nothing else. Here would be a good example of what I mean:
    3 fire skills 10/xx circ
    3 fire skills ammy
    3/25/x eshcutas (kind of a waste but what the heck)
    3 enchant/20 fire dmg/x ormus
    spirit mon
    arach
    skill rings (soj or bk dont matter)
    mages
    random s torch and anni
    9 fire gcs

    Now there we have enchant at maximum performance :)

    Re: will a fire facet give any bonus to enchant

    I think a +2 Arkaines with a +5 Facet would actually give better damage than a 3 enchant Ormus. Ignoring all +% fire...

    +28 all skills, +3 Enchant: 5076 max Enchant damage
    +30 all skills: 5092 max Enchant damage

    though maybe the 15% difference in +Fire Damage makes up for it...? Though if it doesnt, it makes the original argument moot since you wouldn't be using the enchant ormus that started it :)

    Don't forget BC and skill shrine.

    If we don't ignore the %fire damage on Ormus we can say 15% is equal to +2 FM and +1% fire damage.

    Ormus gives more damage.

    Re: will a fire facet give any bonus to enchant

    Exactly what I had in mind. But again its kind of a waste of expense to make a pure enchanter just to enchant melee characters. Then again if you are mad rich then why not? Its just like making a bo barb with a 6 bo helm, warcry stick/3 bo cta, 3 warcry ammy, etc.

    Eschuta isn't the weapon on choice for a dedicated enchantress. You want to get a magic (for 2os from larzuk) +3 fire +3 enchant orb. Last season I had a magic +3 fire +2 enchant orb that I was using.

    Edit: yes I was wasteful with mine. The fun of people being agog at the enchant was worth it.

    BC can count but I would not count shrine since you have to find one so dont count that.

    This would be the weapon of choice for a dedicated enchantress :wink:
