Can you do anything nice with it? Its a 3600dps krider...always wanted one because I lovet to use frost EA as a generator...well question is, is it still viable in 2.4? Or only for fun? Seems like manticore kills it now.
Legacy of Nightmares might have a use for it, don't give up!
Everyone is fixed on strafe variations but I believe LoN set is a bottomless pit and there might be a way to utilize Kridershot, who knows?..
Simply put there are not enough multipliers for Elemental Arrow and the base damage of the skill is pretty low. There is no possible way to make a build around it because the numbers are not there.
There has never been enough multipliers for this skill. In fact, even during the "slow ball" times the damage of the individual ball was low and we used "disablers" to keep the mobs at place so that our balls could hit much more times than it would otherwise. In other words, even with Kridershot, playing Multishot build would result in more damage because Multishot has more "legendary item support" than Elemental Arrow has. Kridershot needs other "support items" to shine. Considering all the hatred for the class from Blizzard I don't think we'll see it soon.
Hopefully blizzard will do a pass on all the abilities in the future. Imo, adding the huge amount of skill damage to all the weapons was the WORST thing blizz could have done for the health of the game - Skills that do NOT have that sort of skill damage become worthless as they will always, no matter what build you go with, do only half the damage of skills with the boost, which, in turns, pigeon holes you into getting those weapons and using those skills.
For me, I hope that blizzard would just remove those skill bonuses and boost the damage of all abilities (Or just double the weapon damage of all weapons), but its likely they will go through and add damage boosts to weapons (Adding +100% Elemental Arrow damage to Kridershot, for instance, would make Elemental Arrow viable again)
now that they have added the damage boosts to items, it would be difficult for them to undo it. your idea of boosting all damage in another way is better. however, the whole class is poor this season and it would take more than just damage to fix them. Grats on the krider shot! Let me know if you find a good way to use it.
