    I was doing Medusa today on Atlantic and for some strange reason Enemy of One was not doing any extra damage. Her bar was changing colors but the damage was no different than without it cast. I was using a Repond Slayer Hatchet with 45DI and a total of 45 DI on my suit with 120 Tactics (I swap between 70 Anatomy and 70 Resisting Spells depending on Spellcasting abilities of the mobs) and spamming Lightning Strike with Perfection and I was only doing 40-45 damage on normal hits and 110-130 on Criticals and AI's. I thought it was just a fluke the first time but confirmed it after doing 3 Medusa's in total back to back. Normally it takes me around 10-12 minutes but each of these took about 25 minutes each.

    This was my first time doing Medusa in a few weeks and have never had a problem like this with her before.

    Eoo doesnt change anything here, as you are already at 300 % di cap with slayer, di and perfection.

    You want to use an elemental wepon and take slayer off for HLD [if you dont have it] or HLA, that way i do about 85 normal hits and 180 on crits and hardly miss or get hit with the HLD and HLA on elemental wepon swinging at max.

  4. DI (damage increase from items) doesnt add up with slayer and/or perfection and isnt discounted towards the 300% cap.

    I hate to disagree - wait, who are we kidding, no I don't. You're incorrect.
     
  6. Did I word it bad? You have a basic damage increase bonus and a damage modifier bonus.
    Basic damage: DI from items capped at 100 + tactics+anatomy+lumberjack(for axes)+str.
    multiply your basic weapon damage with that bonus. Then you have EOO, slayer an perfection. multiply that bonus with former bonus. The op said you would reach the 300% cap because of items DI. it s not the same cap.

    More clear for Lynk?

    P.S.:Having DI on your suit doesnt add anything towards your 300% cap. Is that even clearer?I m sorry, English is not my natural language (only the fourth I ve studied).

    That is right. 100 di do not count towards 300% cap.
    That doesnt change the fact that the op is still at 300% cap from perfection and slayer. Just not at damage cap because he has only 90 di .
