Improved Archon


From Diablo Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Improved Archon is a rune effect in Archon, a Utility Wizard skill that greatly boosts the damage output for a limited time.

This rune effect does what it sounds like and increases the damage of all Archon spells by 25%. Thus the already hugely destructive Archon Blast, Archon Strike, and Disintegration Wave abilities, all only available while in Archon form, become even more damaging.

Skill Rune Effects[edit]

Refer to the Archon rune effects article for thorough descriptions of all five rune effects in this skill, including screenshots, videos, strategy tips, and other related information.
