Amplify Damage

Difference from the LoD version
Slightly less physical resistance reduction.
Pros
Still the strongest physical attack supporting skill. Works fine with Corpse Explosion, too.
Cons
Small radius at low slvls. No other effect than physical resistance reduction.

Difference from the LoD version
Improved damage return. Also grants Open Wounds and Prevent Monster Heal to the party.

The old Thorns and Conversion combo is now safe.

Useless against casters and ranged attackers.

Holy Fire

Difference from the LoD version

Might

Difference from the LoD version
Improved damage bonus.
Pros
Might grants better damage bonus than Fanaticism. IAS bonus of Fanaticism is diminishing return, so it's an idea to hire a Fanaticism mercenary and use Might for yourself.
Cons
No IAS bonus.

Conviction

Difference from the LoD version
Has mild diminished return. -Resist is capped at -130% and -Defense is capped at -80%.
Pros
Still the strongest immune breaking skill in the game.
Cons
Can't lower Magic and Poison resist. Because of Conviction mercenary and oskill Conviction, activating Conviction for yourself isn't absolutely necessary any longer.
