  1. Sorry to double-post; tested Fleetbreaker - like Scourge of Bezzello, its enchantments (other than Bonus Crit Chance) appear to only work for the weapon itself.
  2. <a href="/File:Poe2_crossbow_exceptional_icon.png" class="image"><img alt="Poe2 crossbow exceptional icon.png" src="" decoding="async" width="100" height="100" /></a> The HTML code is showing in the list of crossbows; I think that's what Waski and Bosmer mean.
  3. Single-class does get some interesting abilities, especially if you go with custom companions. Take, for instance, the Driving Echoes ability: you can give a teammate +8 penetration, allowing their attacks (spells especially) to easily pen (e.g. Rot Skulls' AoE, fire spells against sturdy monsters, etc) , maybe even over-penetrate. That being said, it depends how you want to play your cipher; you can play it as mainly team support (e.g. Pain Block giving Robust, Ancestor's Memory giving Brilliant, Driving Echoes giving penetration, etc.), as a Raw damage specialist, as a debuffer, etc.
  4. I have proof now! See the images below (the crit was negated by Veil-Touched, though). Edit: You beat me to it XD!
  5. I was playing a Celebrant (Troubadour / Berath) human male and I was in the Engwithan Ruins on Port Maje. I checked my character, and the only source of hit-to-crit I could find was the crossbow I was wielding. This isn't that surprising given that I'm still on the starter island. Berath's Blessings include bonus skills, attributes, and 5,000 gold. Rings were Gaun's Pledge and that one Suppress Affliction ring you can find in town. No potions, drugs, consumables used. In short, I'm pretty darn sure it's the crossbow's hit to crit that made it happen. EDIT: I also remember checking the accuracy roll, and I did not get above 100; in fact, I think the target's defense was greater than my accuracy. EDIT2: Not surprising given that this was on PotD upscaled.
  6. I just got a hit-to-crit conversion on Thrice She Was Wronged; I checked my character, and the only item with hit-to-crit conversion is the crossbow I'm wielding (Bonus Crit Chance). Question is... is this something weird with Thrice She Was Wronged, or does it apply to everything? If it applies to everything, this could make crossbows an ideal weapon for TheLee's Disruptor Theurge and other crit-heavy builds. Thoughts? EDIT: This makes me wonder if Scourge of Bezzello's Whistling/Howling Bolts upgrade would also apply to spell crits, since it doesn't seem to specify that it must be weapon crits... EDIT2: Scourge of Bezzello's upgrade appears to be weapon-only.
  7. Interesting stuff. Quick question: Does the "Righteous Bash" chance to interrupt work with the retaliation effect of Magran's Blessing or only with regular attacks with it?
  8. Can someone confirm or deny that the deflection bonuses from Mask of the Weyc and the Great Escape Cloak stack nowadays?
  9. If you plan to make good use of the Duality modal (+X CON or INT, where X = number of wounds held), then I would not recommend the Shattered Pillar monk. Furthermore, with all the talents and the unique monk shield (I won't say more in case you don't want spoilers, although this is a spoilers forum section) you can gain plenty of wounds without trying to get wounds as a Shattered Pillar monk, ESPECIALLY since Shattered Pillar monk ONLY gains wounds on auto-attacks, not ability attacks. If you are playing in a party, the Helwalker can be quite good (you can get the maximum MIG of 35 with Helwalker bonus + Tenacious Blows). That being said, if you don't like the malus of the Helwalker, a normal monk or a Nalpazca (especially in a party) can be amazing.
  10. Has this been tested only on PotD? If so, could it be that the implementation of additional PEN, accuracy, etc. on PotD (and Veteran, I think) is through the form of a buff?
  11. Pretty sure it doesn't any more; I think it used to give +3 to Electricity power levels, though. Not sure, though. That being said, Storm of Holy Fire (priest PL7 spell) does have the Storm keyword, so...
  12. I would like to know this as well. it's like a one shot burst of brilliant - just one class resource, for both classes if it's multiclass. If it's a caster, it's only one spell, and it's random. Considering it's attached to a once/rest ability, and that you're likely using this on a hard enemy likely near the end of the fight, it's not that great an effect. Well, that sucks. Looks like priests really got the short end of the stick in just about everything. You're talking to a guy who mains priests all the time, so you'll never get me to agree that they got the short end of the stick on many things Marux amanth specifically binds to paladins and rogues as well, and each class gets unique bonus; priest probably actually got the best (10% chance of echoing priest spells). The worthy sacrifice effect (class resource regen) is the same for all three, though. (I think paladins probably got the shaft for marux amanth) Well, since you main priests, which priest would you pair with a Troubadour? I'm thinking of trying a Celebrant with Robes of the Weyc bound to the chanter class (1.5 second chants, anyone, for fast invocations?) plus Salvation of Time to keep spamming invocations quickly for about half a minute. EDIT: 1.5 second chants + Brilliant = lots of invocation spamming. I tested this and it works. iirc, the robes only grant brilliant to nearby allies, not to the person wearing it, so you couldn't pair a priest and celebrant and equip them with the robe to take advantage of that itneraction. also, no joke the one priest multiclass i haven't satisfactorily and effectively/synergestically cracked, it's celebrant. so i have no idea. Yep, you're right; the Brilliant gets applied to everyone but the robe wearer. Still, 1.5 second chants + Brilliant on all party members nearby for upwards of 24 seconds (2 Salvation of Time casts)... that's pretty good. Pair it with another priest for another Salvation of Time (recovered by Brilliant) and get even longer invocation spamming... or a LOT of skeletons or refreshing shields from the chant.
