Sk Harmtouch Boost Howto?

    After messing around with a bit instant poke into the back of the usual named I ask myself how I can boost that on a Sk?

    At moment I am at 10.25M peak with a 7x1,5M DoT.

    Activating

    - Spire Reavers
    - Visage Decay
    - Intensity of the Resolute

    followed by

    - Harm Touch
    - Leech Touch
    - Thought Touch
    - Viscious Bite of Chaos

    I came up to 15.6M instant peak with a 7x1.7M DoT.

    I tried additional buffs/boosts from

    - Enchanter (IoG)
    - Druid (Wolf, Season of Wrath)
    - Bard (all Nuke Boosts)
    - Shammy (very useless, no real nuke boost found)

    but I don't get more out of that. None of these four seems to have some influence. Perhaps the "Touch/Leech"-line cannot be boosted anymore? I wondered if Glyph makes it beyond Intensity of the Resolute but it seems, that's it. Except anybody here is a Sk specialist can help with expert ideas?

    Data is ToV TS 115 full group gear with all evolving items maxed except Tabard/ToV Earring and with maxed AA.

    VBite ain't shi for instant damage, should be in spams

    Go with Dissident-Forcerejuv-Dissident

    Unholy Aura maybe?

    mh.. does not work either.. perhaps only a chance of crit/luck crit but too rare?!?
    Or Harmtouch is not boostable...

    Shd spire, Glyph of Destruction, Illusions of Grandeur, Ranger Spire, Druid Spire will augment HT's damage.

    5: Increase Critical Nuke Damage by 125% of Base Damage

    Critical Nuke Damage is the line that you're looking for. It isn't a spell, so spell damage damage modifiers won't enhance it.

    Harm Touch was patched back in August, 2018 to always crit.

    So you aren't interested in crit chance modifiers for HT either. Luck stat however can play a role, a lucky critical HT will do more damage than a regular critical.

    You asked about Harm Touch but are mentioning other abilities, so I am unsure if you are asking how to maximise your overall burst damage, or just interested in Harm Touch.

    If you're looking to do more burst damage, visage of death w 2 hander out, tyvl's resolve, scarlet blade, sk epic, unholy aura, quickspear should all be added. As well as forceful rejuvenation while chain nuking (directions regarding forceful in my reply to a quote below). Our Blood dot is worth using too unless the fight is going to be over before it can get most of its ticks off.

    You can add Spear & Dire to that. On occasion, you may have enough mobs to justify Bargain in place of Spear, perhaps even Insidious as well. And if with another shadow knight, Covenant can be added too.
    Allayna and Szilent like this.
