    Dagger mastery? Barb question

    Ok, I want my frenzy barb to be able to wield two fleshrippers fanged knives (non-throwing, mind you). Which weapon mastery should I invest a point into???

    None of them - there's no Mastery that works with Daggers in melee. Put points in something else useful instead :)

    According to this, it's included in sword mastery. I cannot guarantee that this info is accurate, of course.

    It won't take too much time to check that out. Create a L1 barb, level up once, buy a sword and a dagger from the money found in the process and check how attack rating and damage increases.

    It is NOT accurate. The sword mastery is only used when the itemtype is 'swor' and the daggers are 'knif' which is not a subclass of 'swor'. It is fairly well listed out in the itemtypes.txt and skills.txt files.

    Don't worry about the lack of a mastery. If you can get the daggers up to a decent speed with frenzy the huge crushing blow + deadly strike + prevent monster heal should take down monsters quick enough regardless of low physical damage.

    Without mastery you can pump more of frenzys synergys, allowing for equal damage, and if you use Fleshrippers (my suggestion :thumbsup: ) you get tons of DS

    Thanks for the input. Those are very good points and yes, fleshrippers are the reason I'm asking this.

    I have a further doubt: do dual fleshrippers stack their bonuses?

    Info: each one has -50% target defense, 25% crushing blow and 33% deadly strike. Will that mean that targets will have no defense, for instance? (-100% defense)

    I'm wielding them with highlords (more DS) and goblin toes (25% more CB). Can't wait to meet DC again! :yep:

    No they won't because even though frenzy swings fast there is still only one weapon hitting at a time. This means that when that weapon swings it does the necessary deadly strike checks and stuff from that weapon alone regardless of the other weapon. A similar example would be having extra leech on only one weapon.
