Sorry if this has been asked and answered before but I read the Unintuitive Mechanics guide on the Last Epoch subreddit and I’m still a little confused.
Do I actually need to deal damage of a specific type in order to inflict its corresponding ailment? For example, my use case is playing a Paladin that focuses on ignite stacking. I’m currently using a weapon with a little bit of added fire damage but I’m wondering if I can replace that with a pure physical damage weapon and still get the same damage from my ignites.
And if I do need to deal fire damage with my attacks to inflict ignite, how does it scale? The Unintuitive Mechanics guide says ignite has a base damage of 40, but does that scale with fire damage from my melee attacks?
