Basic attack used (removed skill from skill slot). Non-elemental.
Basic, non-elemental attack without legacy Triumvirate: Elemental Exposure does not trigger. The visible effect above the enemy does not occur.
Basic, non-elemental attack with legacy Triumvirate: EE triggers, the visible effect occurs.
Elemental attack (1 Element) without Triumvirate equiped: EE triggers, the effect occurs.
Legacy Triumvirate does affect EE, though I cannot reliably tell you if it works for more than 1 element, as one element already triggers EE (as confirmed in Test 3). It might also be that Legacy Triumvirate does 1 Elemental damage (from the base damage attribute) and this triggers. We cannot be sure here. However: Damage-wise the lowest I've seen with EE deactivated (switched the passive) was ~19k damage, the lowest I've seen with EE activated was ~22k damage. This fits nicely with 15% damage increase from EE (3 elements).
a) Anything I could've forgotten in my testing setup? Anywhere I could've gotten elemental damage from?
b) If not: I would like to have this confirmed by other testers. Remove your gear and your basic attack skill and test with EE and the Legacy Triumvirate and confirm the numbers I've seen.
c) If this turns out true, legacy Triumvirate should be, hands down, the best source. 15% multiplicative damage for any attack you do with any skill you do without having to worry about anything should pretty much beat Loot 2.0 Sources all the way. Is that the case?
For your testing pay attention to the debuff icon. It changes intensity with the number of stacks.
Well, you are not the only one. This is a very persistent rumor... But I assure you, legacy Triumvirate does not affect EE stacks.03/04/2014 18:54Posted by AeriusHm. This is strange to me, as EE explicitely states it takes the element of the weapon into account. I would assume this applies to these suffixes as well, however, the icon seems to be darker indeed in comparison.
It's hard to do numbers without using basic attack though.The real problem is the Triumvirate. With a source in hand you can't easily get your min damage equal to your max damage for some real damage testing.
But the debuff icon does the job. And I also tried with legacy Frostburn Gauntlets and a min=max damage setup just to be sure.
Legacy elemental affixes do not count.
