The talk about it being 60% Str seem to be very close to true..a 10 str increase seems to make a very big influence compared to other ws Onsheeta6:07pm, July 10, 2010
- I gotta agree with this. I messed with this WS at 300% to compare it with Sidewinder, since they both have 5.00 multiplier at this point, and the dmg variance was in excess of 400~600dmg under the same conditions(mob, buffs/debuffs) and STR/Agi(75+79Str 85+48Agi). Either the TP multiplier is off or the secondary mods are as studio gobli states. If there could be some test data done on this would be greatly appreciated. ~~Kerayu~~ September 26, 2010
Two fold attack.
Just wanted to bring this up, Two fold attack is the same wording they used for Viperbite which most people erringly considered to mean it was two hits until it was finally discovered that it doubles your attack for the hit.
Has anyone tested to see if it has a ranged attack bonus --Ferth 01:24, August 6, 2010 (UTC)
- To the contrary, the Viper Bite description states "Deals double damage." However, you could just attribute this to the fact these descriptions were written by two different development teams--KyteStrike 08:16, March 6, 2011 (UTC)
Well as all ranged weaponskills are hit OR miss with no option of partials, wouldn't all of the multi-"fold" ranged ws simply be referring to damage? Certainly the animation suggests otherwise, but I always found it funny that there is no possibility for a partial hit ranged ws. --Froggis 11:27, November 6, 2010 (UTC)
- the above is completely incorrect. if one looks at the descriptions of polearm weaponskills, almost all of them are threefold, fourfold, ect, and are very definitely multiple hit weaponskills, as any samurai or dragoon should know.
I was bored and tooling on around on Samurai when I wondered if Samurai got this skill. Turns out that they do. If the above mentioned is true and it is indeed 60% Str modded...With most Sam heavily focused on str already and none of that blasted -ranged accuracy like with Sidewinder I see this becoming very regarded especially with the new AF3 gloves that Sam has gotten that buffs its Ranged ability very nicely..But that just may be me...
