Does Locust Swarm damage increase from increased crit hit chance?
I know Locust Swarm can’t crit hit but I have seen some say that it do increase in damage from your crit hit chance though. This would mean plus crit hit chance would still be good for a locust swarm build and I could safely ignore plus crit damage.
Here is my current Locust Swarm setup: Lavick81#1266 - Community - Diablo III
Note that I am going for a more speed and no attack build other than Locust Swarm. If yall see any areas for improvement let me know.
LS damage increase from (mainly) Int, Critical hit chance, Critical hit damage and elemental damage.
Attack speed is irrelevant.
If you’re profile is up to date, I would change Rechel for Stone of Jordan and (In the cube) Flavor of time for Ring of Emptiness.
I can’t see which mojo you use, so it’s difficult to comment on this item
Thanks but I am not looking to use pets for anything really. This build is meant to have LS kill everything while I just run.
I am not sure how LS gains damage from Crit Hit Damage since it cannot crit.
I don’t understand why you talk about pets.
Ring of emptiness increase your own damage, not only your pets damage.
That’s why Jade Harvester, a non pet build, use it.
the damage increases proportionally to Critical Hit Chance / Damage ratio.

I’ll have to test it but I would think that it would only buff (maybe) a second application of Locust Swarm and not the first.
You can replace Ring of emptiness by Convention of elements if you prefer
no that would be 1/6 as good.
