I’m currently leveling a Hammer Throw Forge Guard.
In HT, I have the Catapult node which says “Hammers from the same throw cannot hit the same enemy, unless they spiral”. I also have the “Iron Spiral” node that makes the hammers spiral. So I’m supposed to apply multiple hits to the same target if I’m close enough. As the hammers pierce, it’s hard to visually confirm. After the spiral node, there is a “Hammer Vortex” node with which “Hammer Spiral orbits you”. If I select this node, will my hammers still be considered spiraling for the Catapult node?
And second question. I have two idols (four when I have all my slots) that have a chance to pro Smite when hitting with a throwing skill. I have specialized Smite with the Sacrifice node, that deals 250% more damage but costs 15% of current health. If I’m in a big density with a lot of proc, could this get me killed? I mean, could it repeatedly bring my life down and prevent health regeneration? If so, I may unselect this node or set it to a lower value.
