    Default Simple Chloromancer Question..

    Does what I put in my ranged slot matter? Will I do more damage/healing overall if I have a Life damage wand equip?

    Wand is just a stat slot. A notable wand for chloromancers though, is this wand which gives you a ton of spellpower for an expert dungeon drop - about as good as a tier 3 raid drop, but only when chloroing.

    No, because of the stacking Spellpower proc it has.

    Uncorrupted Ancient Life Wand is the best wand for Chloromancers before Infernal Dawn.
    Nope.

    the only thing that matters is your spell power the dps or damage type does not matter at all

    Assuming proc stays up, it's as good as relic wand off Maelforge (aside from focus loss). Gotta love that Expert dungeon tied-for-BiS-with-Maelforge-Relic-aside-from-focus stuff.

    Pretty much 100 percent, you can easily get 3 stacks by the time most archons will hit FP and you can recover those stacks pretty quickly after a disconnect (i.e., burrow phases on Grugonim). It works in a manner that AMoP and GoB should work -- stacks built up to and maintained, without a huge disconnect penalty.

    I also believe it has a short ICD (I think it's 1.5-3 seconds or so, but I really haven't paid attention).

    Yeah it really is an amazing wand with almost 100% uptime when chloroing.

    P.S. (Don't look a gift horse in the mouth)

    Doesn't the element effect the type of wand auto attack damage that is done after toggling on ranged auto attack? Either way, damage type is irrelevant when choosing wands.

    It would be really nice if we could wand auto-attack while casting with a staff though... Having to be in melee range to hit with staff, which will always miss due to no +hit, is a bit silly...

    The damage type on the wand only affects the damage that that wand does.
    If you attack with it as a ranged weapon, then yes it will do whatever damage it says.
    Aside from the ranged auto-attack, the type and amount of damage on a wand doesn't matter as it has no baring on your spells.

    As far as the no +hit on the staff, there is also no +hit on the wand. Both should have about the same chance to hit, so auto attacking with either isn't really that good. If you run out of mana, or are silenced, then you're better off spending your time running away than wacking the enemy with a stick.

    Once you take Resonance and Natural Awareness into account both Shard of Dire Prophecy and Lake of Fire are better than Uncorrupted Ancient Life Wand.

    It's still absolutely amazing though.
