Sever is kind of overpowered!

    Just bought this for testing purposes. See profile for exact stats: http://eu.battle.net...90/hero/1330100

    For those of you who do not know what the weapon does:

    Besides the raw damage buff of 24%(!!!) in my case to demons, "slain enemies are left in pieces" means that a killing blow does roughly 10x more damage before crit damage increases.

    A basic killing blow with frenzy without any dmg buffs hits for +- 1.6m. With all killing blows in the millions you health regen from life steal is so high you will probably never die as a barb when you are killing stuff. Also for killing elites the raw damage increase of 24% is insane and when you have trash mobs in the mix you will never die...I just left my LoH 1H on the AH for 10m, sold instantly and bought this for 3m and the damage and healing is way better. Kinda overpowered.

    And Sever prices skyrocket. Then Blizzard nerfs the item and everyone gets mad that they wasted money on an item that now sucks. Could happen!

    This was neat to read about. Thanks for sharing. I wondered what the proc actually did on Sever.

    Not mad but kind of bored though. See for 13m crit

    Well, not really. It would already be a killing blow, so the mobs would still have died. it's just that it feels like you are insanely overpowered, because of all the ridiculous high numbers popping up.

    Which makes it fun, but it's not actual dmg. So it's kinda useless I suppose.

    Though, apparently it IS overpowered together with life steal. Enjoy it while it lasts I suppose :P
    So guess you are right after all, that it is OP. Hopefully people don't waste all their gold or money if it ends up being nerfed.

    The damage from the proc is not the point. Its all about the healing. You still deal 13m damage. The healing part is what makes this overpowered. You no longer need ANY LoH. Besides it has a flat 25% damage modifier against demons (all mobs) at a max roll. Basically means that when you have 40k dps you get an extra 10k dps from 1 affix on an item.

    In other words you get 25% more dps and almost every killing blow heals you up to full HP.

    I realize that, i even mentioned it. But people are all going "zomg big numbers" like if it was that that makes it OP.
    Being poor i won't be getting it anytime soon, unless one drops. Never know :)

    Haven't seen a legendary or set item since =(

    Do you know if the damage bonus against demons works additive with wotb-insanity? Is it base+25%+100%=225% damage or 1,25*2=250%damage

    Most damage multipliers are additive... though I havent tested it, and its mostly damage modifiers from skills that I tested (not items).

    Since when are all mobs demons?

    Found Sever today and sold it in 5 minutes for 14 million... It even had a socket!

    Should perhaps tried for more... I was still kinda suprised over how fast i sold it. :)

    Does it matter if the sever has 2,x% leech? or can I just have 2,x% leech on my mainhand weapon and tak a sever with a socket for 100% gem?

    How important is the offhand dmg?

    And for ww-abrbs overall: if I have low dps offhand my shown damage will go down, right? why can I have a low dps offhand?
  • #17
    i found one with 1026 dps,20% dmg roll and high int/vita, how much worth?
  • #18
    What about the Battle Rage rune that makes crits explode for 20% damage to nearby enemies? Does it work with that? It would be extremely OP.
