Answering as best I can:

are Elemental summons affected by Minion buffs/debuffs?

Yes. The skill tree text doesn’t make it clear, but elementals are a kind of minion.

are Elemental summons affected by Elemental Strengths Increased?

No, it only affects your own attacks.

is Elemental Nova affected by Elemental Strengths Increased?

My educated guess is that Elemental Nova is treated as a modified version of each elemental’s own attack, so the answer is no.

Can Elemental Nova crit?

According to how I think Elemental Nova works, each elemental’s nova crits as often as the elemental’s normal attack, which is either never or rarely, and there’s nothing you can do to improve it.

elementals do crit, don’t know about Elemental Nova

Is +Minion damage the only stat that affects the nova dmg?
Can I increase the range or the sfx strength of the nova with any stat?

Yes.

No.

I dont think so? But is there a need for that? Its the biggest aoe in the game, by far.

Thank you everyone for the replies <3
