View Full Version : Stacking Issue with DM and ZanFi

With the last change to ZanFi which added FK damage, we can no longer stack H2H bonus from Drunken Monkey and ZanFi. Was this intended?

In other words, my minimum damage is X.
I hit Zan Fi, min = X + 85
I hit DM2, min = X + 85, I was expecting min = X + 85 + 72

It's probably a conflict with slot 7.

Any chance we can request to get this fixed?

Pretty sure we never could, haven't we parsed this?

True, the +damage portion has never stacked. It used to be worth using both for DMs higher +damage and ZFs % mod, but ZF now has better +damage, making DM pointless 5 minutes out of 7. (And really, you have Eye of the Storm for the rest of the time.) Unless you REALLY want that extra FK damage from DM (ZF has it on slot 7, DM on slot 4) DM isn't worth using anymore.

I believe eots and dms do stack. They are different types.

I parsed this recently and DM's min hit was a handful of points lower (like 6 maybe) for minimum damage compared to zan-fi. I suppose DM is still good for the specials attack mod, but that's not exactly significant considering how long it lasts. My guess is that it's probably better spamming VS instead of DM now, but I haven't changed my keys around yet.

Eye of the Storm.

I didn't actually check before posting that. I was under the impression that EotS and Zan Fi +damage didn't work together, so assumed it was the same for DMS and EotS. Most likely I thought that because I don't use ZF and EotS together. (Such that I always have something running when fighting. Most likely that's the reason I do that, not because the +damage doesn't stack. That, and the +% won't stack, anyway.)

That makes sense, though I'm leary of using eye of storm because of the timer it's on now. When I do use it, however, it's usually after something else where I did want zanfi, so zanfi is going at the same time anyway.

How badly do you want to live?

I use shaded step a lot lately for spot tanking, if that's what you're wondering and that's the timer problem with eye of storm.

I barely ever get to use eots for the same reason.

As long as it doesn't kill you tanking IS more dps! Go go riposte!
