    Default Saboteur Question

    Is the damage dealt by detonate from the various charges we stick on a mob considered from an ability which builds combo points or from a finisher? I am trying to decide on a good soul to support my Sabo...

    Also is the weapon for these attacks (both types) my ranged weapon or my main hand melee?

    I don't understand your first question at all, however sabo attacks are all based off MH DPS, ranged and oh are not taken into consideration.

    you are horribly mistaking

    Dmg is calculated from both weapons and if you are a 44+ sab and have a ranged soul such as ranger/mm yor dmg is calculated based on your ranged weapon when you are at range and melee weapons when you are in melee range

    Stacking charges would be considered combo point building. Detonate would be a finnisher.
    Also, it's my understanding that wich weapon DPS will figure in depends on your sub souls. If they're all melee (like Bladedancer and assassin) then it would add Main hand DPS, if One of them is ranged then it would take you ranged weapon DPS (this is why the cookie cutter ranged sab uses 2 points in ranger).

    While you are right on the ranged part, you're wrong about the offhand. Only main hand is used for damage calculation (apart from any stats on your offhand of course).

    MH is the only weapon used unless 0pt RNG/MM are involved. OH is a stat stick for anything that doesnt use quick strike/precision strike.

    as said it was that way since beta/alpha... wetstone worked so that they will add to your dps despite the weapone used... they applied to ranged attack too ^^'

    Aren't whetstones just a blanket +AP? It doesn't matter if you're using the weapon or not, it just adds to your AP, sort of like runes.

    Hmmm looks like you guys are right and only MH counts. A few people in my guild said that rogues dmg gets calculated by a sum of both weapon dps divided by 2.. i guess they were wrong.

    Thank you for the replies so far. My first quest

    The damage from the early combo point powers do no damage until detonation. The damage done when detonated, is that considered damage from a combo building skill or from a finisher? Or both? (Since there are two damage numbers given)
