Hello. The reason why I'm asking is because many people on the forum claim that the Staff of Xoranth is like the best melee weapon for high ST characters, that left me puzzling. Also I'm a bit confused about the whole speed issue. Do base speed and weapon speed add? Do tempus and haste help spellcasters (harm for example) as well or do spells work relative to DX points/base speed, so speed spells and items don't matter. Anyway, here goes Is avg dmg like: Code: base speed + weapon speed / weaponAPs per attack * avg dmg of weapon ? Example: DX20, ST20, tempus fugit, haste, speed boots -> base speed 70 + 5 Sword of Baltar 40 avg dmg, 15speed 75 + 15 / 3 * 40 = 1200dmg per round? Staff of Xoranth 12 avg dmg, 37speed 75 + 37 / 1 * 12 = 1344dmg per round? I don't currently have arcane axe or arcane great sword at hand so they are probably way better than the 2 above configurations. Pyroaxe or that Iron Clan Hammer are even superior to the arcane weapons maybe.
