Calculating the buffs

This build has seven sources of shadow damage shown above:

This build also has five buffs to shadow damage:

Compounding the additional damage

Damnation increases damage at the rate of 5% (.05) per level.

Shadowcurse increases damage at the rate of 10% (.10) per level.

If all instances of damnation and shadowcurse are gained during battle, you can multiply the direct shadow damage done by 1.60—in other words, you increase the total shadow damage by more than 3/5:


Damnation 1 + Damnation 2 + Damnation 2 + Damnation 1 + Shadowcurse 2 (1.05 x 1.1 x 1.1 x1.05 x 1.20) = 1.60083.

The base damage multiplied by the product of the damage increasers, gives you an increase of 60.0% added to the original damage inflicted.


The 60% additional damage described above is a best-case scenario. You will not always get that much additional damage, but you can see how adding additional sources of damage buffs can increase your total damage done quite considerably.

Proc rates

Note that nothing on this page takes into consideration the different rates at which you may gain various procs, which will also affect your total damage in real gameplay.
