Pardon my ignorance, but why exactly is Triumvirate better with a black weapon as opposed to an elemental one?
Because the "Adds x% [ELEMENTAL] damage" affix only applies to physical damage, so if you have an elemental weapon it only applies to the non-elemental portion, meaning you get less benefit from the OH. The same applies to similar affixes on Zuni boots, SoJ, Tal amulet, or other items.
Ahhh, interesting, thanks!
