    does a chanter benefit from wearing bane damage for somatic bond hits?

    no, somatic bond doesn't actually hit from the enchanter so none of the enchanters modifiers apply.

    Does it factor in the chanter's + melee crit from items or tomes for sb?

    What about AoD? doesn't it use your focuses and elemental damage focuses?

    AoD is entirely based off of the enchanters focus effects, AAs, and tomes. Elemental damage on gear does not (this may have changed with 2.5) apply to aod mimicked nukes.

    Bond does not factor in enchanters melee crit because somatic bond doesn't actually hit from the enchanter so none of the enchanters modifiers apply. Somatic bond works by taking the damage added from the 700 atk and reporting it to the enchanters combat log instead of reporting it to the person with the buff. All of the damage/threat is actually dealt by the melee with the buff.

    Elemental damage on gear still does not apply to AoD.
