    Weapon damage increase question

    Does anyone know or have a link for the strength/dex it takes to double the damage for different weapons such as Bows, throwing, knives, etc. for v1.10?

    Thanks!

    Here is the formula for melee weapons:

    { [ (1 + on-weapon ED%/100) * Base damage ] + min/max damage }* ( 1 + Other ED%/100 )

    Where Other ED% = Skill ED% + Synergy ED% + Aura ED% + off-weapon ED% + Strength

    Here is the formula for missile/throwing weapons:

    { [ (1 + on-weapon ED%/100) * Base damage ] + min/max damage }* ( 1 + other ED/100 )

    Where Other ED% = Skill ED% + Synergy ED% + Aura ED% + off-weapon ED% + Dexterity

    As you can see, doubling your total damage by boosting strength/Dexterity for a good build/equipment is almost impossible.

    I know that Daggers and throwing weapons used to be 50 strength/50 dex ... so one point in strength or dex gives .5% damage boost to you weapon... is it still the same for v1.10? What about bows.. that's what i'm looking for

    Thanks

    Daggers, Throwing Knifes, Javelins (non-amazon), Throwing Axes get 0.75% ed per point in str or dex. Amazon Spears and Javelins are at 0.8% ed per str point and 0.5% ed per dex point.

    Bows gain 1% ed per 1 dex.

    Thanks

    And I assume all other melee weapons get 1% per point in strength?

    I believe Assassin claws are 50/50 Str/Dex

    We also missed Hammers, they're at 1.10% for strength. But as RTB posted that link has all the information needed.
