in my defense, that is just a cut paste of the 2004 combat explained page, and if it mentioned the bonus from high AS it would be basically correct

other than that it isn't very well documented ... I been searching the forums about that combat change and can't really find anything ... be interesting to see what I wrote about it
I was just looking at scaling magic damage to mr/int - same way combat works. So I cut/pasted the combat damage scaling code into a new scale_magic_damage() func ... lo and behold, when your AS gets really high, well over breaking defense, it DOESN'T stack on proportionately extra damage - there is a limit to the bonus - 10% extra damage maximum. So that basic 50/50 for longswords holds.
finally, I don't think the top post is that accurate - that original dps meter I made wasn't very good - also I should have compared morningstar vs broadsword rather than ls vs flail. Axes don't even get a mention.
Yes it is wrong if he says go 250 max dex, rest str if you are going UA or LS.WbBann wrote:Many thanks for the explaination egg, that extra 10% damage is still worth the stacking up on STR then and my dex is still useful. However if this is the case does that mean Kodiaks guides are out of date?

edit: ok, so with the patch, the str/dex ratio for poles and maces is now 90%/10% (since everyone has a little dex)
also I tweaked the dps of the various skills, so poles and maces should be a bit stronger now (they were indead a tad weak, not that bad tho)
finally, the AS bonus from str & dex is now scaled to the weapon you are wielding, ie
old way: high str only added to AS for fighters and dex only added to AS for rogues
new way: for a 50/50 wep like LS, both dex and str add to the AS bonus

Just logged on... do you mean the next patch after this? I still seem to have the same AS with LC...
Oh, silly me, you mean the AS bonus damage... doh.
