Hi all. Was gaming last night with one of my buddies (PS4) and he metnioned that some guys he has been playing with said that the +EP damage is only calculated for bleed damage and is therefore not applicable to the cold rune (which is the current meta).
He did not say he believed it, he was just passing on the info. I have real doubts that it is true as people talk a lot of sh!t but thought I'd ask the question here.
Fantastic information. I feel like I finally have a definitive answer to my question.
ps it is probably worth remembering that +skill damage is additive to the generic additive multiplier, so it may still be worth going for a different (defensive) stat on at least one of the items that you can get +EP on, especially if you need the toughness.
