    Default Whestone Question.

    I think this has already been answered, but I just wanted to make sure.

    If I use a Whestone (+12 melee weapon damage) to my MH.
    Will it increase damage from ranged attacks in MM spec?

    Thank you in advance.

    yes. +12 on your MH and +12 on your OH will increase the "weapon damage" of your MH, OH and range weapon by +24.

    What he said. Damage from whetstones get factored into every attack you make, regardless of if they are with your ranged weapon or offhand or whatever. Using two +12 whetstones is a very large DPS improvement regardless of your spec or rotation.

    How exactly do whetstones effect your damage? is it just a flat +12 damage buff on each attack or is it factored into weapon dps?

    a test i did long long ago in 1.1 days showed my auto attacks uneffected, but each of my arrows (the dark ages when i was a MM) each doing 27ish more damage with 2 +9 weaponstones.

    fully theory: i believe they effect your damage at the base, meaning any +xx% damage talents you have modify them.

    perfect thank you so from what i understand for example on a tooltip like:
    'weapon damage + --- physical damage'
    it just adds the damage to only that 'weapon damage' before getting modified by any additional modifiers like the nightblade +15% damage on combo generating moves.

    from my theory and limited and likely outdated testing: yes :P

    hopefully someone else will test it out, if not i'll check it after work tomorow.
