Whirlwind + hit spell

    Curious if you have a whirlwind weapon, with say Hit Fireball on it. When you use that special, does it have a chance to throw a fireball at multiple enemies? Or just your main target?

    I've got a radiant scimi with hit lightning/hit energy area, but have never paid attention to whether or not hit lightning hits more than one mob.

    Thanks

    Oh also, what about HLD? If you use whirlwind with a HLD weapon/glasses, does it have a chance to proc HLD on all the mobs it hits?
     
  2. Yes to both questions. Just like you can also leech from everything you hit.

    Wow.. so if you have a radiant scimitar with say... hit fire area... when you whirlwind attack, it will set off the hit fire area with every target hit?

    Talk about crowd control...
     
  5. Imagine this with whirlwind:

    Hit Mana Leech 62
    Hit Lightning 42
    Hit Lower Defense 40
    Hit Stamina Leech 36
    DCI 6
    DI 40

    :D

    Quit gloating Connor =)

    I've got one similar... not as great but...

    Hit Energy Area 48
    Hit Lightning 46
    FC 1
    Hit Mana 52
    DI 42ish

    Would the M&S glasses still HLD even though it's not on the weapon but using whirlwind?
     
  7. Yeah, it would still go off. That would do a lot of damage with that double hit spell.

    Cool beans. I just never paid attention to it when using whirlwind w/that scimitar.

    Now if only I had a radiant w/HLA too... be great for taking on the DF tucked in a corner and HLA all his cohorts =)

    Whirlwind with a titan's hammer works wonders in choke points. :D

    So let me get my head round this...

    If say with titans hammer:

    you whirlwind each person (say 5) for 15 damage
    100% hit area so each person gets hit 5 times with energy area right???

    so thats what 90ish (15 per hit) damage a whirlwind?

    In one swing each person would get hit for 15 damage (as an arbitrary number) from the War Hammer. And yes, each person would also get hit 5 times with energy damage (lets just say 5 damage).

    After one swing each person that is aggrod to you and within range would be dealt 40 damage.

    There is also damage modifier with Whirlwind where the more people the more damage so those numbers aren't in any way accurate on the damage dealt. Just example numbers to see how the damage stacks.

    I'd like to see a group of like 3 stealthers with those hammers and bushido stealth up to a group of reds or blues and quickly one shot the whole guild
    that would be loltastic.

    hehe...I wish there was a feature that you could see other stealthed members in your party. To coordinate such tactics a lot easier =)

    I've thought about a pure chokepoint template made especially for those occassions with a scimitar like mine and just spam whirlwind at dropdowns and choke points.

    Now I gotta find more Dark Sapphires to make more twinklies to get one with the HLA/HSL/HML that I want.

    Ya, I use it... but sometimes unless you're really zoomed in you can't see how close they are, not to mention any slight lag in UOAM refreshing could thwart your plans :lick:

    It'd still be nice to have though.
