Earthquake vs Ice crash is a tricky subject

30k ice crash with a pillar? My god thats so sad. I had 36k ice crash with The Cauteriser on a level 56 slayer leveling setup abusing all the elemental scaling possible. Was a leveling setup for my oro's build. So it took the two handed nodes for fireborn jewel and went straight for fire lash and templar area for elemental scaling. 

 

Even way back like in 2.0 when i was playing Facebreaker and using a 3link ice crash for clearing it still had 50k. Pillar in theory could be scaled higher than facebreaker so 30k ice crash DPS seems off to me. 

 

I always wanted to make a strength scaling build this is discouraging.

 

P.S Didnt use ice crash for more than 10 minutes cause it was downright worse than using earthquake but checked tooltip and feeling of the skill.

 

In theory Ice crash should be able to get more dps because of attackspeed scaling . In practice however monster have resistances and little armour. So the more physical you have the better. Earthquake is also better than ice crash when you dont have good attackspeed scaling. Earthquake also has better aftershock aoe. Unless your ice crash has 3-4 Attacks per Second i think Earthquake will always be better. Because with a 20/20 Earthquake and less duration its something like 0.66sec or 0.72 for aftershock. You do one hit reposition the character and do another hit if your attackspeeds around 0.42 instead of spamming it. That kind of playstyle helps with survivability as well.

 

Earthquake vs Ice crash is a tricky subject

That was exact Raymond Cheung thought. I was hoping it would scale very well, since 10 Strength would give 18% phys damage, so for example with 1200 Strength it would give over 2160% phys damage, so any flat physical damage would scale much better than facebreaker, but results disappointed me. I lost interest in it and didn't want to spend more time min maxing the tinny bit more damage on Path Of Exile items.

 

Also i never liked ice crash before, never really played it, but i after a bit of playing i somehow started to like it. It does not have annoying delay like Earthquake. After this i have tried using Earthquake with less duration and it felt terrible lol. That is so strange.
