Has anyone heard any new info on it?
Has anyone found out who has the Only current known Vajra across all servers?

Only thing i learned new in general was that the Double attack from Aftermath 3 does stack with Weapon skills.

Info on it was posted a while ago iirc, thf with a mandau got it. Long story short, it's better to go for a mandau than it is to go for vajra.

Inc Vajra info:

- Using Sneak Attack gives you a DEX bonus (and subsequent damage bonus based on that DEX amount). For example, if you have 100 total DEX, the damage bonus is about 8-18% he says.
- He hasn't tested Trick Attack yet due to it being rather difficult to test without someone there that wants to test with him.
- He also said though that Mandau >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Vajra. =\

This thread reminded me to visit the KI thread where they compared the dagger to the Green Power Rangers' weapon to call his Dragonzord.

Good times...

I never expected it to beat Mandau, if anything i just wanted something that would be a top tier dagger to use in general.

Also i lold at the Dragonzord reference.

SE fixed it, or rather broke, your ability to dual wield relic and mystic weapons. Basically, whichever you have on your offhand won't offer you any of the bonus that it has. I am not so sure if you offhand mandau (which has no point to start with) will let you use the WS, but from their wording you shouldn't be able to use MS.

There's not much point to offhanding a relic/mything seeing as all of it's stats are disabled.

120 million on a piece of town gear that I will never ever use* or most of an Apocalypse or Yoichinoyumi?

Hard choice..



*and if you have a Mandau you will never use Vajra

But you can't dual wield Apocalypse or Yoichinoyumi with a Mandau! Should have gone with Excalibur for the real epeen power combo.

I believe it's been shown the effects on the dagger aren't as good while in offhand. Like the aftermaths don't work right or something.

They don't work at all. Offhand it's just a low DMG high delay dagger.

Unfortunately, this quite literally means we know nothing more now about Vajra than we knew before, if this is the only info we have to go on. Such a large spread like that doesn't even justify concluding that the enhanced crit rate is offered via added dex %, added pDif, a straight dmg multiplier, or however.

There has been one other thief to get it since that JP, as far as I know. I don't remember the name though. Think it's another JP. If anyone's interested, it's lying in the BG relic thread.

Sounds good. How far along are you? Right now I'm at about 60k ampoules, 1/3 trophies, salvage boss wins, 0 king wins, floor 0 on Nyzul on my disc but nearly 100k tokens, and 50 more assaults to still do. Fortunately gilz won't be an issue; I just have to get these other things done. So much work for what might remain largely a piece of town gear -.-

The biggest problem with Vajra is you have to use Mandalic Stab to get the aftermath effects.
