Passives in question:
Wand Fire Damage - 10% of wand Physical damage added as Fire Damage
Wand Cold Damage - 10% of wand Physical damage added as Cold Damage
Wand Lightning Damage - 10% of wand Physical damage added as Lightning Damage

Do these passives add an additional 10% of the respective elemental damage outright, or do they just convert 10% of the physical dmg to the element?

The only skill that wand damage affects is power siphon.

As for that question they add bonus damage equal to 10% of your wand's physical damage as X element, any talent that states "physical" is generally a crappy talent though, compared to generic damage bonuses.

Thanks for the answer guys. Another question:

Do passives with increased elemental damage affect your global elemental damage? Or just on spells.

The reason I ask is there are passives that add weapon elemental damage as well. Do passives that say +5% elemental damage also affect weapon elemental damage?

Elemental damage

> all spell bonuses(added chaos damage support gem doesn't benefit.
> all elemental damage done by your weapon and gear(+XX as fire) and the elemental portion of skills (lightning strike converts half of your physical to lightning, so that 50% of your physical damage gets boosted

Elemental damage from weapon

>does not work on spells
>same mechanics as above, except talent points get a very big bonus to this compared to generic spell damage

Like wise elemental physical damage is augmented by physical damage also since its based off of physical damage
If good things come to those who wait - arn't they just the leftovers of those who got there first?
There is not good or bad, just perspective and opinion.

That's like saying the damage you do when you swing your weapon is augmented by having more damage on your weapon.
Not.

I have had people argue with me increasing str or taking physical damage nodes would have 0% impact on the elemental damage the weapon does..so you never know

Depends on whether the weapon elemental damage is a static amount or a percentage of the weapon damage.
Not.
