Elite difficulty how long can you kill a boss? And what stats you are having, with your emberquaker?
I am not talking whatever difficulty. Is my words so hard to understand? I am playing elite.
When I said 10s, I was not sure if it's from your one hit or 8 hits. If you can do 401k every hit, and consider boss human form has 4500k hp in elite, 10s is the result since you can only cast quake once per second.
I already gave my stats.
I re-enchanted my cannoner, with 137 Str, 1300 Focus now. 2 *3970 DoT in 5s and 5460 fire damage in 5s on my devastator.
Even without capped DR I can survive. I mentioned that build can survive without any DR in elite Tarroch's tomb (of course very dangerous), the lv 200 dungeon in vanilla. And 74% is only 1% away, whatever.
My DoT cannoner builder needs only 55s to kill both 2 phases of kane (red dragon) in elite difficulty.
The green one is even shorter. Blue, white and gray ones is a little bit longer, like 65-80s.
Max tick of DoT can be 300k per 0.5s. On boss.
On dummy I got a 550K, should be a combination display of dot and normal attack.
Again, if you buff it that high, I probably kill him in 30s. The time is mainly because it would fly up in sky. For a ground boss it would be much shorter.
And after I get more soulcrafted Tier0, I can fill slots with 62 focus instead of DR.
Focus, works exactly same as vanilla when it affects the flat damages and DoT. I already did a lot of experiments and asked Salan.
And talking about the stacks for those skills with the damage taken debuff, it seems to be hardcoded in the game system. (Not only blast cannon, ... all similar skills like Frost Breath, Flaming Glaives share this feature. ) Not easy to delete it I think.
And among 2h, cannons, and 1h+shield, I think the worst performance is actually 2h, not cannoner.
