    Probably a dumb question, but asking anyway...

    I am actually at the stage of wanting to push innates past 100 (yes I know costs are insane for diminishing returns..). Pushing Eagle Eye right now, and looking past that to Draw Strength. I actually scored a 550 crit on Nefas, right before he knocked me senseless and killed me:p

    The tooltip is potentially unclear. At GM level I get +2.5 weapon damage. If I find an insane number of XP to get it to 120, I get +3 weapon damage.

    So what. Is it +2.5 points of damage? (Hardly likely, considering the amount of XP this skill consumes)
    Or is it +2.5 TIMES the (total or basic calculated weapon damage). I hope it’s the latter - would just about make it worth pursuing.

    Anyone? @Chris ?

    increases to base weapon damage go like so: if you have a bow that does 5-15, then if you have something adding 3 weapon damage it's 8-18, and then all the subsequent calculations work from that higher base. so more than three points to your hit after all the number crunching is done, but a lot less than triple.

    Ah thanks, makes it a bit clearer. At least I can make a more intelligent decision
