    Various questions about Deadly Strike, Charge and Smite

    1) Does Deadly Strike apply with Charge?

    2) Is Deadly Strike additive or multiplicative?

    3) If Deadly Strike triggers, does is double the weapon dmg which goes through the dmg bonus from skills or does it add dmg in any other way? I mean, if i have a weapon that deals 100 dmg and i have, let say, 200 strenght. If Deadly Strike triggers would i then be doing (100*2)*((str/100)+1)?

    4) Is Charge Weapon Speed independent? Does attack itself allways take a certain amount of frames no mather of WSM and ias?

    5) Does the +xx dmg from the redeemer add to smite dmg after all dmg bonuses from skills or before dmg bonuses? is pvp penalty drawn from the +xx dmg too?

    regards

    1. Yes.

    2. Multiplicative

    3. Basically what it would be is: (100)*[(str/100)+1] * 2

    4. No response because I'm not 100% Certain and don't want to mislead you in the least.

    5. Same as #4.

    I phrased 2) in a bad way. What i mean is if i have 20% DS from one item and 10% from another, does that give me 30% or less?

    3) so basicly DS doubles the output dmg :) thats massive!

    2. It gives you 30%. So I guess in the way you put it, Additive.

    3. Yep. (Remember it's only Physical Damage that's Doubled though...)

    Just found this while reading the FAQ.

    5. "Things that work with smite:
    (...)
    +Damage modifier on the Redeemer (unique Mighty Scepter) and Astreon's Iron Ward (unique Caduceus)
    (...)

    The +damage modifier is specially useful in PvP, since it adds the straight amount of damage indicated (it won't be displayed in the character screen) to your attack, without being affected by the PvP penalty, Damage Reduction..."
