Primary weapon damage bonus
Around what level does the primary weapon damage bonus begin to really kick in? Iím trying to decide when to ditch my Rangers Wurmslayer. Thanks.

Main hand bonus for one handed weapons is: ([Player Level] - 25) / 3 (rounded down)

Or if you meant more subjectively, usually 45-50ish depending on weapon choices

Thanks. It seems at 46 I should be moving to a faster weapon.

It really depends on the weapon. If your using something with an amazing ratio (blam stick) it’s very viable deep into the 50s.

Rule of thumb, fast weapons benefit more from the damage bonus ( jade mace, captain’s mallet, certain Velious 1 handlers) and it becomes more apparent every 3 levels. There’s not a single level when “it” really takes over, it’s just depends on the particular weapon you’re taking about.

For 2 handed damage bonus it really takes off in the later 50’s. That being said 2 handers tend to out parse a good dual wield combo after level 30. So if your a ranger the woodsmans staff, or comparable 2h slasher would probably beat wurmslayer and whatever offhand your using.

When will they let us choose our left hand as primary hand. /haters

Right now I have wurmslayer and swiftwind (46) but may move edge of the Nightwalker which was my off hand into primary replacing the wurmslayer. And eventually buy a SoZ for primary I think.

A way of quickly gauging the relative strength of weapons while taking into account damage bonus is to apply this formula:

(weapon damage * 2 + damage bonus) / Delay

So comparing, for example, wurmslayer to exquisite velium battlehammer, at level 20 wurm is 1.25 and the exquisite velium is 1.2. But at level 31 with a damage bonus of only 2 the exquisite velium becomes equal to the wurmslayer (1.3 each) and then finally at level 34 with a damage bonus of 3 the exquisite velium overtakes the wurmslayer with a score of 1.35 versus wurmslayer at 1.325.

If you're a ranger, you should be using a Woodsman's Staff
