Question regarding Puppet Master Whiplash and Rift Shards


Recommended Posts

Is there any interaction between these at all?

If the riftshards crit (because of normal chance) does it reset the counter on whiplash?

If there is no interaction, can some sort of double crit occur (where the rift shards crit on the normal whiplash crit)?

I seem to recall years ago, there was some similar question about Chrono and the Brutalizer interactions (but I do not recall the answer)

Anyone know how this works?

Highest Critical Strike damage multiplier is used at the very end if both of them proc on the same attack.

 

Both Whiplash and all levels of Riftshards uses this same Critical Strike multipler mechanic.

 

Also, moved to Mechanics (this is a Mechanics thread, not a Balance thread).

Ok, so lets assume level 25 puppet master has level 4 rift shards and is attacking a very stout legio

 

Attack 1:  Whiplash goes off causing crit, Rift Shards do not proc

Attack 2: Whiplash counter now at 3, Rift Shards do not proc

Attack 3: Whiplash counter now at 2, Right Shards proc, causing crit.

Is the Whiplash counter set back to 4 because of the rift shard crit, or does the counter keep going to 1?

Whiplash's charge system is independent of whether a Crit actually happens. It will always tick down after every attack & will always apply a 100% chance to Critically Strike for its multiplier, and adds the splash effect.

 

This means that it doesn't care whether Riftshards procs or not. But the damage multiplier will be the higher one if it does.
