    Zerker Questions

    Kay kay. So Berserk converts physical damage into Magical Damage. It takes the weapon damage and amplifies it alot and the output is magic damage. Okay.

    --Does Grief work with Berserk? Will the awesome 'Damage +340-400' be converted and amplified into Magic Damage?

    I know it doesn't work with Vengeance so I'm wondering about Berserk since the skills are similar.

    --Is Berserk a timer skill or can I use it one after the other? So, basically, does IAS matter?

    --Are there certain kinds of damage that aren't used with Berserk? (Off-weapon ED, for example.)

    Thanks alot

    Oh yeah...


    -Does Conviction work with Berserk damage (Magic) as it does with Fire/Ice/Lightning?

    -Is there anything else I really need to know about Berserk before I start acquiring expensive gear?

    I can answer that IAS is good for zerk, and no conviction doesnt lower magic reses.

    Awesome, thanks so much.

    --I guess I'll throw out one more question... does any aura increase Magic Damage somehow?

    (1) it is non timered. although of course ias determines how fast you swing the weapon itself.
    (2) berserk only converts PHYSICAL damage to magic damage, so any non physical damage source is not converted to magic (elemental etc). off weapon ed is physical, so yes a part of that is converted.

    oh, and that other question:

    pretty sure concentration increases only paladins MAGIC hammers, so yes, there is one (albeit it only applies to a certain attacks).

    but any aura that increases your physical damage will increase your magic damage output (might, concentration, fanaticism, etc)

    Unfortunately no curse or aura increases magic damage except for the concentration+hammer combo for pallies. Important things for beserk are:

    1) Fastest attack is 9fpa
    2) Defence = 0 when beserking
    3) To counter this either go for max block or stun monsters with warcry
    4) PvP : Do so much damage (2-h) that 1-2 hits KO very possible :p
    5) No leeching of life/mana when beserking (dtm may work)

    Stickied is Radu's Beserker guide and that would help you too. Cheers :D

    Awesome, thanks guys. That clears up almost everything. I still need confirmation that Grief does work with Berserk, though. (I'm leaning towards yes)

    I'm thinking I'll go with Freeze Target or Slow Target to help with the 0 defense as well as Max Block Stormshield

    Ooh... Last question! Does PDR% work during the 0 defense period of Berserk or is it taken away too? Would Stormshield's PDReduction be taken away for the 1.whatever seconds of defenselessness?

    only defense is lowered to zero. all resistences, including physical, still remain.
