So just going by math without actually testing these numbers in game for accuracy, the absolute most damage one could do just with WOTW at level ten to a single target with only your own personal helixes and gear is 1597.124. This is with level five left (ew) the Lorain skill spike, and two pieces of gear with skill damage as secondary. If I really looked through all the gear, there is a possibility that there is a piece that could be used to increase it further, but this was just kinda spur of the moment, and I didn’t have the time to look to in depth. Of course this is heavily dependent on the chance that Lorain skill spike will activate. If it did not the damage would hypothetically be 1228.55
Technically one could probably do higher damage with the exact same setup, if one manages to actually crit the ultimate. I do not know how much crit effects the damage of this skill though, so I won’t even speculate, because it is very unlikely to actually happen.
This is of course the extreme. It’s unlikely to happen in game very often, because most thorns don’t spec for the Lorain skill spike. Let’s look at the bolas instead, because it is more commonly seen, because of its reliability, consistency, and it’s powerful as ****.
If one used the bolas and two pieces with secondary skill damage with left level 5, this is what one could hypothetically do. 1383.35. Still high damage.
This is still a setup one is unlikely to see however. Using a loadout with three pieces of gear that increases skill damage is unlikely to be seen on most thorns. Mostly because you are giving up health regen, which is a must have on thorn imo. Also very few people actually use the level five left helix, because it doesn’t have near as much damage potential as the bleed.
I would never use either of these loadouts personally. I’ve been having lots of success not using skill damage at all on her lately, and instead focusing on attack damage. My prefered loadout nowadays is a zero cost shard gen, blue (or purple with attk secondary,) health regen, and either purple attk with health as secondary, or symbiotic gauntlet as my last piece.
With that loadout my arrows hit pretty hard, but level ten Wotw does 937.5 damage.
