Today I want to talk about the legendary gem Pain Enhancer. It's a very popular choice for certain T6 speed farm builds and has some applications in greater rifts (Stampede Crusader and WW Barb).
In this video I explain and showcase the gem's mechanics, physical damage scaling, what does/doesn't proc it, the lack of stacking on top of itself, and an interesting tidbit about damage over time abilities and ticks/framerates. Enjoy!
scales with physical damage
doesn't work on dots (or shouldn't), as cc/cd is averaged into dot damage, so dots don't 'crit' in the technical sense
doesn't stack on top of itself
dots have internal tick rates, which are often not 60 frames, so on many dots the last tick will do less damage because they actually tick more frequently than once per second
is not based on proc coefficients (any crit will proc it, regardless of skill or source)
