S6 Grievous Wounds Bug

  • I was testing the damage modifiers on shadows 6 piece and I came across a bug.

    Impale - Grievous Wounds applies an extra 330% CHD on crit, but when this rune is used with Shadow's 6 Piece bonus it does not apply the extra CHD. The bonus is still active while using 2 or 4 pieces but becomes inactive with 6.

    Here's another Shadow's 6 piece bug:
    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/20419192810
  • Grievous Wounds not affecting the 6-piece bonus of Shadow's Mantle is not a bug. In fact, none of the damage bonuses from runes for Impale affect the 6-piece bonus. This is to preserve diversity rather than leave one rune as the obvious, mathematically correct choice. Players shouldn't feel punished because of their set bonus if they'd rather use another rune or element.

    On the flip side, the other issue you mention with Convention of Elements does appear to be a bug. The 6-piece bonus of Shadow's Mantle is intended to deal the elemental type of whatever Impale rune is selected, thereby benefitting from Convention of Elements when the appropriate element is active. We've put in a report for this and will be investigating it.
