View Full Version : New barb question

08-14-2007, 03:57 PM
Started a new barbarian and found lots of useful ideas, but I have a question.

What gets used in sweep attacks and what doesn't? I saw the other thread about raw damage calculation, but I'm interested in the weird stuff - keenness, paralyzing, cursespewing elemental damage, bane damage etc. Does any of it happen on the collateral damage of a 2 hand attack?

No weapon effects or elemental type damage will apply on any glancing blows. The only time these would apply is if you are using cleave, great cleave or whirlwind.
