Hi, guys

Does anyone know if these are actually working together?

I read at DDOwiki that we have "Evocation Feat Bonuses" added to the DC formula, but I wonder if that is only related to spell focus evocation feats.

Thanks!

Rune Arms are treated like spells, so if you have sorc PLs, you should be getting +1 evo bonus up to three sorcerer lives to your rune arms DC. However, there is no way of really checking to see if they are applying. I can tell you that I have 3 sorc lives and on my swf/rune arm caster triple completionist vs the repeater rune arm build a life ago, my rune arm shots do land more often on my completionist, and they where build similar in regards to BE tree and 3 evo feats. Of course, this is a 38 lifer vs a 5th lifer.

You can also drink spell power pots to increase rune arm damage.

As far as I know, this was the last comment made by a dev regarding rune arm DCs:


The DC of Rune Arm spells is suppsed to be 10 + (Charge Tier + 1) + (INT modifier) + (Max Charge Tier - 1) + (Evocation Feat Bonuses). The Evocation Bonuses were not applying.

With this fix, bonuses from abilities like the Spell Focus: Evocation feat, Arcanotechnician's Evocation Focus enhancement, and the Evocation Specialist ability from the Magister destiny should all contribute to a Rune Arm's DC.

At the moment, item/augment based sources of Evocation DC bonuses do not affect the DC of Rune Arm shots.

It does not mention past life sorc specifically, however, it does say evocation feat bonuses, and past life sorc is a feat. So take that for whatever it's worth.

Yep, saw that info on the DDOwiki too.

I'd love to be sure just to farm a couple of sorc past lives in order to get more landings of rune shots in EE content.

In the other hand, if these sorc feats are not adding to the rune, I'll move to ranger past lifes instead...

Ty for your answers.
