    Default From what does Cadence benefit?

    Ive seen a few of these posts already but most of them argue over what and what doesnt actually
    increase the damage/healing of cadence. So sorry for asking these questions again but im hoping
    for a more definative answer.

    1. Which weapon? (melee or ranged)
    also when dual wielding does it only benefit from the mainhand or from both?
    2. Which stats?
    I assume Dex and attack power, but is that it? Some people argue spell power but i dont think thats right

    Thanks

    Main-hand melee or Ranged.

    Dex and Str make up your Attack Power so both will contribute to it. Don't bother with Spell Power. Gear yourself as you would any other Rogue and you will do just fine.

    And the first tier ability as well, right? That should increase your Cadence damage which will also increase the healing component.

    Well yeah, but I figured that sort of explained itself since you can't get the second tier one without getting the first tier one :P

    You can also get the far left one on the third tier in the Nightblade tree, I believe the name is Unstable State.

    Yes from what I understand the weapon damage is based on which weapon (melee or ranged) you have out when you activate cadence and other weapon damage based abilities....so if your bow/gun is better weapon damage than ur melee, make sure you keep that out.

    I have to admit this somewhat confused me (and still does). So far as I understand;

    Cadence is a Life based attack. Therefore anything with high resistance to life should take less damage.

    It gains from Attack Power (Str/Dex) not Spell Power (Int/Wis).

    It gains from anything that boosts non-physical attacks in talent trees (ie its treated as a magical attack rather than a ranged attack).

    Not sure about crits I have only seen runes that increase either spell or melee crit. I have been guessing that Cadence is affected by melee crit.

    Of course most of this is testable but I am just having too much fun playing!
