Death Wish trivia & strategies
- Death Wish is a "misc" bonus, which figures differently into the damage formulas for weapon-based attacks and spells. The misc bonus is additive with attribute and weapon skill bonuses for weapon-based attacks, but it is a standalone multiplier in the damage formula for spells. This means that a +99% Death Wish bonus will nearly double the damage for spells, regardless of other stats, but it becomes less effective over the course of the game for weapon-based attacks.
- For example, if a warrior has 20 STR and 0 two-handed, their attribute/weapon skill multiplier is 150% (or +50% bonus). A +99% Death Wish bonus increases that to 249%, which is equivalent to a +66% multiplicative bonus. In the late game, the warrior might have 55 STR and 5 two-handed, for an attribute/weapon skill damage multiplier of 350%. The +99% Death Wish bonus brings that to 449%, which is equivalent to a +28% multiplicative bonus.
- Death Wish no longer deals damage to the target as of Patch v22.214.171.1246
