That was not my point, and the +1 Shaman (along with the attack speed) is literally the only reason I'm taking it. +1 Nightblade would be even more useless on a 2H weapon.

It's the sum of the Physical Damage on a weapon converted to Piercing Damage, yes.

so what happens when you have more than 100% physical damage converted to other damage types?

They are weighted against each other to equate to a 100% split between those damage types.

I like the concept of the item, Its got no direct synergy that is evidently appealing.

It does look like it should have potential. However how would you plan around getting to it and then having to replace it with what. A side note its base damage has very little damage range that's cool, your going to be doing ~85-102 piercing and physical very interesting.

Perhaps if they change the item into a 1h sword so you can build it as a trickster dual wield savagery setup.

Also why is Alvarick's Rebuke so damn good!, hard as hell finding a suitable replacement on a spirit savagery build not that I mind, I love everything about it.

You are entitled to your opinion but Nightblade has Lethal Gambit, Amarastas Blade Burst, Ring of Steel, Shadow Strike, Blade Trap & Blade Spirit that all have Piercing Damage in them. Then you have Pneumatic Burst, Shadow Dance, Anatomy of Murder, Blade Barrier, Veil of Shadow, Night Chill, Circle of Slaughter, Phantasmal Armor & Devouring Blades that all could benefit from the +1 to nightblade if they made the switch.

Shaman has no skills other then Summon Briarthorn with piercing damage in them and he doesn't scale off your damage. So sure you can benefit from the attack speed and +1 to shaman but you would be better off with a Physical, Lightning or Vitality weapon with attack speed and using the crappy +1 to all skills necklace.
