Will items like Stone of Jordan affect in PvP other players? Let's say stormshield has 7% reduction of damage from elites...Is another player in PvP treated as elite? will it count? or 30% dps more from SoJ?
I honestly doubt it, because that would render SoJ a must-have for pvp and blizz dislikes ideas like that. One option would be to reduce the effect to about 1/5 or so, but still, it just doesn't sound like players are 'elites'.
Players are considered elites and all bonuses involving them should work but currently do not due to bugs. A flat 30% damage increase could be better than a quadfecta ring in terms of overall damage to players but can't test it until the bug is fixed.
I wouldn't say so, cause SoJ doesn't offer You any protecion nor attack speed increase....still, best quadfecta ring with all resists and vitality would out-range sojs a lot
well 6% elemental dmg + 30% to elites + a skill bonus of maybe 14% or resource cost/crit chance... i'd say thats quite a lot of dmg, even if it lacks defenses. There could also be cold dmg for slowing and for example +max disc are great utilities.
I really can't see how a rare ring, no matter how good stats, would do even close to over 30%. Not even halfway really. So if indeed the elite bonus will work, like many have suggested, i'm calling SoJ BiS for majority of builds.
