    Default Weapon Dps Question

    K so i been back for a few weeks to rift (took a break from november 2011 till now for college) and i need some updating on rogue ranged dps

    im currently 3/8 ID 11/11hk

    1300ap
    53%crit
    i do around 3600 dps single target raid buffed / 2600 self buffed

    k heres the question;
    does melee weapon damage effect ranged damage?
    im wondering this cuz i recently swapped my lightning glyphs off my two melee weapons with exquisite whetstones and i got a very noticeable dps jump (almost 200dps)

    my main dps spec is 51 ranger / 15mm /0 ***

    Whetstones do effect ranged dps, which is why you noticed the dps increase when using them over lightning glyphs.

    Melee weapon damage does not effect ranged dps. The only thing you get from melee weapons when using ranged attacks is the stats. And vice versa.

    k, it seems odd that putting an enchant on a one handed weapon that increases one handed dps by 5 increases ranged dps also but the weapons damage themselves dont affect ranged dps.

    seems derpy lol

    they wont, unless you are playing a nb or something that has NO rngr/mm in it, if you were barding though, you would see that having a ranged soul will cause the bard abilities to use ranged weapon dps, while still getting buffed by melee weapons whetstones.

    The whetstone modifier gets converted to AP, which is why it effects ranged dps.
