    Nope, you're correct. C would be the weapon crit modifier you see when you ctrl over a weapon (13% for longswords) and D would be the total weapon crit chance for masterworks, armor, etc.

    @Sara Dreygon this is awesome. I'm just reading through it now, but before I even finish would like to ask you to add it to our Steam guides. You can pretty much copy paste, so it should be easy, and we really need some more up to date information like this on Steam.

    Yep, sara is a very kind person, and dam good player. I love to party with sara and vespers doing dps, and having margaritte and andar on heals is great too. Can tell good players when the person with agro is always on the opposite side of the mob :) .

    Would you mind posting some information about how you level up various skills (and in what order you level them)? Do you turn everything off but one skill? Do you train one skill and one innate? Do you just train everything you want and turn off things you don't need?

    Thanks in advance and huge thanks for the guide.

    How the XP pool works is a regular question that pops up.

    Dear @Sara Dreygon :

    I've read your guide and I've recommended to my guild since there are many newbies who have started to play as a swordsman. However, although my methodologies are different than the guide (I use Chaotic Feedback instead Berserker Stance for having a significantly attack speed while using skills, so that thing makes me fast for spamming Thrust x5 since the great reduce in global cooldown since cast time is translated at global cooldown while using a skill... at the cost of having too careful of not receiving damage because your Life Attunement is generally -200, Juxtapose for trying to having more Focus for dealing more DPS, and Chaos Shield for praying god to have about 60-85 Damage Resistance and/or another physical protections like dodge, avoidance or even the infamous air shield for giving time the tank to having aggro, all of them thanks to Chaos Specialization), honestly I'd like to recommend the following spells for people who want to mix with blades. Those spells are:
    • Flame Fist: Combo it with Thrust and you can make one of the most annoying dots since it's the largest ingame.
    • Ignite Weapon: In conjunction with Inmolation, those two ones are a must have for having many fire dots in your character.
    Earth is more used than fire because many plate users doesn't have enough fizzle, with the addition of having strength bonus while using earth, but in practise, at least for me, of course, Fire is more practical than Earth because combining Fire dots with the infamous dots of Rend is more effective than attacking separately earth and Sword.

    Even it, I've enjoyed reading your guide. I hope taking one day to talk with you about swords... if you want, of course. :)

    @Sara Dreygon Any chance you can give us a quick look at your most often used Combat/deck bar?

    Oh Boy, Oh Boy! Thanks buddy!

    Now to see what I have been doing wrong...."study time"!


    @Sara Dreygon
    Thanks again for the post... I notice the two decks have zero healing or buff's (Douse etc..) on them, so I assume those are likely used in a party setting. Do you have a solo deck you use?
