324 hammer damage without conc. Conc does 160% enhanced damage. With conc aura on hammers does 583. Seems closer to 60% than 160%.

Should be 824.2 damage (324 x 2.6). The reason its 2.5 is 1.0 for 100% base damage, then 1.6 added to it for the 160% extra damage.

having played a lot of mods (this is my 6th now), ive encountered a lot of problems with blizzard's coding of d2. in fact, according to some of the gurus on PK forums, d2's coding is more incorrect than correct. concentration is no exception.

heres the explanation: concentration's listed damage boost is actually only half for hammers. so heres how you would calculate your damage:

160% listed conc/2 = 80%

+100% (base damage like you said) = 180%

324 x 1.8 = 583.2, your listed damage.

yea its incorrect, and its not soulmancers fault or any mods fault but blizzards. i wouldnt worry anyway, hammers are overpowered with good gear

Not really sure even Blizzard's at fault, since everything is working the way they said it should. When Concentration was modified to affect BHammer (way back in like v1.04 of D2), it was designed to work at 1/2 effect. This has never changed, and is still advertised as working this way today.
