How many times does the character in question get hit to trigger the 3 retribution damage?

Also, is 20 melee damage worth the 10 elemental resist, +2 healing, and +1 damage?


In a standard dungeon? MAYBE 1 time.

In a point comparing damage outputs you compare theoretical best builds, not builds nerfed to not maximize. (and in a standard dungeon? Yes)

Both points being said the Druid is better off running fully spell based next year by +50 damage output minimum

Do you know, if you equip nightshade's but don't use it for sneak attack (rather a ranged weapon), is the sneak attack damage still doubled if crit is confirmed?

Thanks Jake, this is super great!

I might change the hit/crit rates on Rangers to match monks.

To Ed's point of surviviability, if someone has the stomach for it, it would be interesting to see how the builds shake out under somewhat "realistic" assumptions, namely:

1. Charm of Avarice, Ioun Stone Silver Nugget, Ioun Stone Gold Nugget equipped in all builds.

2. Some minimal survivability - say the build wants to get to at least: 22 AC, +10 to all saves, either 40 HP and Charm of Synergy/Awakened Synergy or 50 HP.

My gut sense is that doing this will not change things much, it will probably bring down all classes about -2/-4 or so, I'm not sure if it will switch around classes but it might narrow some gaps.

I would be very surprised if this were the case.

Assuming Nightmare/Epic here and this is a clear indicator the Nightmare is too easy.
