So I’m trying to compare my 860 Arcano trinket with a 940 Tome of Unraveling sanity trinket and it only shows a very negligible upgrade despite the extreme ilvl. I’ve been fine believing this for a while until I compared what AMR shows the effect of the trinket and what the dungeon journal in game shows. I don’t know if they buffed the trinkets that didn’t end up being updated in AMR, but the stats in game appear clearly higher in game than AMR claims they are.
For example, in AMR, a 940 Tome apparently does a 414,464 shadow dot over 12 seconds and then applies a crit buff of 2,556 for 12 seconds.
In game however, the journal shows the Tome applies a 664,927 dot over 12 seconds and a crit buff of 3,082.
This is quite a difference. The other ilvl versions of the trinkets are similarly off. Am I missing something? I thought maybe the artifact passive might affect something that would read differently in game, but the passives clearly don’t account for that much of an increase (more than 50% DoT damage increase?) and there’s no passive that could possible cause the crit number to show higher than it is (20% higher).
Any clarification on this would be greatly appreciated.
EDIT: Forgot to mention that in the simulation report, both the buffs window and the damage report shows that the effect of this trinket only applies a ~117k dot and 1.9k crit buff. This makes it even more confusing.
