+lightning skill damage from facet/gear not working properly on sorc

when my poison necro has the +25% to poison skill dmg, it accurately increases the spell by exactly 25%

but on my light sorc (nova or lightning), the +16% to lightning skill dmg only increases the spell by 2.6%… what?

idk if this is a bug that happens to all sorcs, not just light sorc

It’s added to the +% from all other sources I.e. mastery, facets, griffon’s etc. Not on top of the numbers shown in the character sheet.

ah the numbers make sense now which makes me very sad because of how little the numbers changed

Your mastery skills increase skill damage significantly so a plus 5 from a facet is almost negligible. The minus 5 is especially nice considering you dont have Griffons or charm.
