Stone of Jordan?

  • #1
    Hey all,

    Just had 2 questions.

    First, is an SOJ worth it on a monk?

    Second, what is the stat priority of an SOJ for a monk?

    + lightning damage and + FoS damage. Ofc you'd want the highest + against elites possible, but FoS rings are really expensive last time I checked.

    The dmg affix doesnt realy matter. I would go for cold since its a "snare". If you play a standard build with FoT/SW Cyclones i would go for an soj with sw dmg increase.

    SOJ is nice for higher mp(at least 7) and/or ubers. Just not worth for farming on lower mp
    Words of wisdom: Don't follow the advice of people who won't have to deal with the consequences.

    As far as i know +elemental damage on SoJ (and in every item anyway), applies only to the physical damage done by your weapon. There is a blue post that explains that.
    If for example you have a weapon that has 100 physical damage and your SoJ adds 6% elemental damage, as fire for example, your weapon will do 100 physical damage + 6 damage as fire.

    Why "+lightning damage"? (please don't say "Because of FoT").

    Dont need cold damage since you will have scoundrel with a Buriza.

    Elemental Damage affixe is override by the element of used skills. However, only Frozen damage is noticable if you don't use elemental skill like FoT/Thunderclap or Cyclone cause it can chill ennemies. Otherwise, it doesn't matter.

    But it's really really good with black weapon cause it scale at his maximum potential.

    I dunno man.... a decently rolled hellfire will get far higher dps imho... and your other ring is probably going to be Nats....

    I have to disagree here; probably the best use for SoJ is mp0-1 tempest rush farming with +damage to sweeping winds and a good spirit regen. You can swap out with a good dps ring for when you cast sweeping winds initially.

    My Hellfire ring is not the best, but taking it off makes me lose 45k dps. Adding a stone of jordan (6% elemental dmg, 30 to elites and 5% sweeping winds is what I have) still give me more dps. My SoJ is actually 15% more dps compared to my decent hellfire ring (tested on Azmodan MP10 numerous times). Imagine what a better SoJ could do :S
