Damage Increase

Damage Increase, or DI, increases the damage you will do on a successful melee or ranged hit. It is applied before the targets resist (100% poison damage will still do 0 to a 100% poison resist target).

It can be found naturally on weapons and jewelery. It ranges in intensity from 1 to 50% on weapons, and 1 to 25% on jewlery. It is capped at 100% from items.

Total Damage Increase is capped at 300% ( all the above + abilities, spells, buffs )

Grapes of Wrath adds 35% Damage Increase as a temporary bonus, that cannot exceed the 100% items cap.

DI on exceptional crafted weapons can be removed with Whetstone of Enervation to become a free slot for imbue. This has to be done before Imbuing.

Bard Mastery Inspire buff gives both a Damage Increase of up to 15% and a Damage Modifier of up to 15% for each party member.
