    Default Whetstone of some sort for guns / bows.

    Does anyone else think this is something we really could use?

    Currently, applying whetstones on your melee weapons adds DPS to your ranged attacks. If ranged slot consumables were made better, it might upset the balance between callings as far as consumables go.

    So no, not really.

    They used to, but since the whetstone change they have been bugged/broken and just add + damage, such as two 5dps whetstones making headshot hit for 1810 instead of 1800, unless they did undocumented changes, I have not tested this since 1.5 was released.

    Whetstones on melee weapons adds very minimal damage to ranged attacks... nothing like adding a full whetstone to a ranged weapon. I highly doubt there would be any problems.

    Whetstones work for ranged exactly like they do for melee. The problem is that right now they are bugged for everyone.

    Putting 5dps on a melee weapon never acted like 5 dps on ranged unless you're talking about something else.

    Putting a whetstone on your melee weapon gives you the same damage bonus to all your attacks. Mainhand, offhand or ranged make no difference.
