Default Question about devastation conversion

Ascendant hood converts aether dmg to elemental dmg.
With only ascendant hood equipped, devastation tooltip says
2394-3368 Fire dmg
999 Elemental dmg
and after adding ring ( Mythical signet of the Runefather, +32% to all dmg, +71% elemental dmg, +436 health, and +% resistances)
Devastation tooltip says
2637-3710 Fire dmg
999 Elemental dmg

Isn't Elemental dmg also has to be raised?
As i experimented, only + spirit attributes raise below elemental dmg

It's quite fatal to elemental dmg arcanist because after gear up(mostly +% elemental dmg),
devastation tooltip says
6154-8650 Fire dmg
1092 Elemental dmg (raised by item +spirit)

Tooltip bug or the game still thinks it's aether, but it does work properly on-use.

^What my boy usernamesaid.

We really should begin to compile a list of 'Commonly asked questions' and post it on the forums.

Might work on one this weekend or something.

*Might.*

Dude. Devastation is one of the strongest spells in the game.

If you're finding it sucky, I suspect the issue lies with a lack of RR, and not so much with the skill itself.

Have you actually invested points into it? Are you running an elemental or fire build?

Its easily the most destructive skill in the game per cast and one of the better spells all around as long as its semi build appropriate.

Don't use the skill's tool tips for damage comparisons involving conversion. Assign Devastation to your LMB or RMB and check it's damage breakdown on the 2nd page of your character window at the top.

Only problem with this is you can't check the damage breakdown on pets or pet-like entities like Rune of Hagarrad unfortunately
