Hotfix (March 11th) Skills that deal Physical damage should no longer benefit from items that increase elemental skill damage.*Quote from Bagstone
Quote from VenaliterTechnically, the black weapon bug still exists (at least it did at the end of beta). Not sure if it's fixed in the current build, the last bluepost I found was this:c) how exactly % damage works now. Is it just base damage on the weapon? Does socketing a ruby increase the benefit of the % damage? Does it increase elemental damage on weapon?
They somehow find a different way to describe it but tl;dr: if you have +% elemental damage stuff like Triumvirate in RoS, you want a black weapon. Also, if you use physical damage skills and have "+% to physical damage skills" items you want a black weapon. I'm very easy on Blizzard but they really managed to mess this up again, but I haven't given up my hope they will eventually fix this. Let's see...
If anyone has news on this let me know, otherwise I'm gonna add this as well.
Was this them fixing Black weapons? Or should it have said weapons that deal Physical Damage if that were so?
