So i got my Aboleth artifact weapons today and since i don't see any threads about what the buffs do so obviously i had to test them myself and well...
Critical Hit! Your Death Burst deals 3769 (3089) Physical Damage to Battle Wight Commander.
So this is the "explosion on death" buff it gives, the aoe of the explosion is really small and cant even hit any of the dummies in Trade of Blades when you hit all of them at once (yes dummies proc the explosion when you hit them at 0 HP) and the dmg is really low around 1-1.7k but it can crit as seen from above.
Your Tainted Attack deals 221 (201) Fire Damage to Target Dummy.
And here is the Damage over time effect from the weapon which stacks on every attack (might prove difficult to balance for certain classes) but the dmg is kind of low once again.
also isn't it weird when the explosion does physical damage and the damage over time effect does fire?
I just expected more damage out of the buffs it gives and i know its supposed to be a stepping stone to relic weapons and all but for ppl who dont want to farm for relic this just seems kind of unfair and uninteresting.
