1st Answer: Yes, since daggers are considered swords.Aruil'Lavain Saebrar said:Greetings,
1st question: Does Sword Mastery apply to daggers?
2nd question: Daggers get enhanced damage from strength only?
3rd and final question: From which stat do throwing weapon get their enhanced damage from?
Thanks in Advance
I don't know, one of the builds i wanted to make was a dual fleshripper wielding frenzy barb - with highlords, guillaumes, and gore riders, you would have 75% crushing blow, **% DS (replacing criticals from mastery), and 60% open wounds, all going at 5 fpa (with 60% IAS - shael dagger, highlords, gloves). without having a mastery, you can use those points for synergies, or boosting passives/warcries. since i don't have two fleshrippers, i haven't been able to try this out, but i think it would be funAruil'Lavain Saebrar said:It's a shame, I wanted to make a dualdagger-wielding barbarian but it seems it won't work. .
Probably not. The problem here is not so much the damage you do, but what you will take. With a high amount of CB, you will really increase the effectiveness of the daggers, but all that close range fighting will be hard on your old life bar. I have around 2600 life after casting cries with my frenzier, and I still have to quaff pots and play the crowd control game to be effective. I average around 1500 damage with my two mismatched Frenzy weapons (ali baba, Schaeffers), and it takes just long enough to kill to get pounded on seriously. But, I have no CB at all, so that may be holding me back, especially when teh Schaeffer's hits.Aruil'Lavain Saebrar said:That was exactly what I was thinking. Frenzy and two elite daggers, which have considerable damage. I did a little checking and with frenzy and double swing maxed I would be able to do around 1500 damage with each dagger.
Is that enough for hell?
