Is the stratics spell damage calculator not working correctly?

    I've managed 85% spell damage increase in my suit, i'm entering it into the calculator but it keeps defaulting to 61%, is there a cap on spell damage increase or is the calculator bugged?

    I'll elaborate a bit more on what i'm doing, i'm trying to sort my template the best I can, with emphasis on running Doom. I'm a tamer mage with extra edge toward the nuking side, I've geared myself out so I can spam 200+ damage flamestrikes non stop on the Dark Father, I've got 65% spell damage increase when using my Demon slaying spellbook, I will be nuking like mad. My main issue is I can't seem to cap my resists out, have high LRC and LMC, 2/6 casting and still maintain 65% spell damage increase with my demon slaying book. All of what I just mentioned is in my suit except for maxed resists, my resists are in the 50s and 60s. Will this do or must I aim for higher resists? I'll be using a greater dragon aswell.

    Got my resists all into the 60s now but my total LRC is now only 80%, is this enough for doom or should I swap back to my 90% LRC lower resists setup?

    I don't get it, i read that SDI is capped at 100% and yet the spell damage calculator always defaults to 61 SDI when i enter the numbers in.
  5. mayber there is a hard cap on item sdi

    What is Hom so I can look it up.
  10. I'm pretty sure SDI was put under diminishing returns several patches ago. That patch introduced diminishing returns to MR and I immediately noticed that my spells weren't hitting quite as hard.

    It could be all in my head, but I know what spell combos were killing creatures before that patch, so either those creatures were tweaked or SDI was.
