Has anyone been able to get the Eye of Ekron AoE power dmg mod to work? I've actually tested this mod a few times and I honestly can't see that it actually works in any perceivable way. Basic attacks don't AoE like the Mega Rod's mod does. Skill attacks don't AoE unless they are an AoE by default, and I don't actually notice any extra damage when it does AoE.
I tested this both with having enemies near my targets and again with enemies being around my body, just in case it worked differently than Mega Rod does, using both power attacks and basic attacks, and in no situation did the mod actually do the same thing that the Mega Rod did except for power users. With that mod not working at all it makes the merits spent on the mod feel like a complete waste, and in turn made me stop using that mod and stop using the Eye of Ekron artifact entirely since only the mod would have made that otherwise sub-par artifact situationally useful.
