      Bah... sucks that the one build I was interested in the most, a status effect build, is locked behind a paywall. Oh, how I wish to just ignore enemies with no weakspots by dotting them to death.

        got a great bug playing with a friend i had died being pushed in the water byt the mob spawning knockback things, then my friend found the ritualist class item whilst i was still dead and he looted it and i just didnt recive the item to unlock it at all

          Archon with Havoc From, Ritualist with Miasma, Monarch for magic bullets and Corrupted Meridian for explosive fireballs. Throw on Dreamcatcher and Cultist Set for fashion and you're a Wizard, Traveler!

            Eruption does direct skill damage and scales from % to skill damage. Miasma causes no damage on it's own and instead inflicts STATUS EFFECTS, hence, it scales from % to STATUS damage. Three of those statuses that cause elemental damage (corrosion, burning, overload) also scale from % to ELEMENTAL damage. It's not a bug as some claim and it's not really hard to understand.

              skill damage buffs dont affect ritualist for some reason but ring of misery(increases status effect damage 15%) does affect miasma but is not reflected on the tooltip, also some enemy. Possibly bug

              also Ring of sciolist(increase mod and skill damage 15%) does not work on ritualist's skill no matter what, seems to me that the game considers ritualist skills as status effect instead of "skill" damage.

                Seems like the duration for miasma is capped to 20 seconds and skill damage doesnt make it do more damage? I dunno if this intentional or a bug. But ive tested it with the shaed stone and engineers skill damage passive but neither of them actually buff the damage of miasma

                • Anonymous

                  Probably going to get nerfed, it's really overpowered and not at all what people were asking for from an "elemental build" even though it is pretty cool.

                  • Anonymous

                    Amplitude trait works extremely well with Ritualist.

                    Eruption, Miasma, and Vile (prime perk) have 22.5 range with the trait.

                    You don’t actually need Miasma if you can apply a lot of status effects on a mob and kill it. Vile will do the rest.

                      Does anyone know if corroded from 2 different sources (corrosive shot and fetid wounds) counts as "unique" status effects? Probably not huh, that'd be too good.

                      • Anonymous

                        Ritualist/Summoner for an Occultist vibe. Ritualist/Archon for a Warlock. Ritualist/Handler for a witch hunter.

                          I wonder if terrified, from the Team Perk, and Infected from the Prime perk, counts as status effects for the sake of increasing damage with the Ahane Crystal.

                            This class seems like it will have some of the most fun builds in the game. Miasma in particular seems like it will pair ridiculously well with some of the jewelry like energized neck coil or the timekeepers ring.
                            As for what class to pair this with I'm thinking handler or engineer would be good choices since the dog causes bleed and the engineer can use the flame turret which will spread even more status effects

                            • Anonymous

                              I wonder if the trait also applies to the miasma skill, increasing the duration to 22 seconds at max level

                                Gonna be a fun class with busted builds for sure especially with Death Wish! Gonna go a support route with Medic since i play with friends.
