Because the conversion on the helm and amulet do nothing when the sword already converts physical to elemental on Forcewave. Only reason to keep the gloves is for the flat fire.

You can just use an illusion to make another helm look like that one.

Helm is for dmg to Horn, and also give electro dmg to forcweave, and amu also give flat dmg to forcewave like gloves do.

So...forcewave conversion...

Sword:
100% to fire
100% to light
100% to cold

Amu:
100% to fire - doesnt have effect cause of sword ??

Hands:
100% to fire - doesnt have effect cause of sword ??

Helm :
100% to light - doesnt have effect cause of sword ??

Meaning they don't add up one on top of another ?

As I mentioned above - yes they will.

Because they are all skill modifiers they occur at the same stage of conversion. Since the total conversion % exceeds 100%, it moves to use a weighted system to fit everything inside of 100%.

For Forcewave:

You have 200% Physical to Fire which will become 200/400 = 50% Physical to Fire
You have 100% Physical to Lightning which will become 100/400 = 25% Physical to Lightning
You have 100% Physical to Elemental which will become 100/400 = 25% Physical to Element

Thus, Forcewave's damage is split evenly in a 2:1:1 ratio to Fire/Lightning/Elemental. If you look back at your damage breakdown, this is part of why Fire is higher than the others with Lightning trampling Cold.

Oh nice, so they do work togheter ! thank you very much.
Tested with a lot of other items, even with ravager helm, full justice set, myth peerles eye, and other, but these ones all give good bonuses to the build's skills.
