Did some testing on what does and does not stack for the Stormcaller / Warlock / Elementalist

casted buffs and this is what I came out with. You can use the info or test it yourself to

see what should be similar results and if you like, post any stacking combinations you have

found too.

I used two main attack skills and tested what they would hit for in a range (Base) then got a few

crits too and that became the "Crit" below.

Most of the skills stacked well - only two were any issue, that is explained below.

Crit 1024

------------------------------

Note that the Base fluctuates a few points but the crit is consistently the same number.

For brevity I just show a single number for the base - when you test you will likely see the same fluctuation. It's the difference of 241-243 for ex.

From what I'm seeing in testing

Sacrifice Life Damage (Warlock) and Static Flux (Stormcaller) do not stack with each other.

It seems like it always takes the larger of the two.

Otherwise, Neddra's Torture, Exposure, and Ice Shear all seem to stack fine in any combination.

That's a general gain of 3% + 7% + 30% = 40% + dmg

Adding in the lack of stacking potential for the 2 other skills.

You could either buff yourself with

Static Flux (if you have extra charge) +20% dmg or with

Sacrifice Life Damage (does not require charge) +10% dmg but probably should avoid using both together.
