      The damage from this skill does not count as ranged damage, so abilities that reduce ranged damage don't affect its damage. Something I noticed fighting in wotd against ranged damage resistant enemies; hatchet throws, bullets, arrows, throwing weapons do crippling reduced damage, this still hits like a wrecking ball.

        Been farming this for 8 hours with great stats and a 45 second from shrine to boss strat. I don’t think this actually exists.
