I'll post this here, because I know there are some THFs here who can answer these questions, even though they are not THF-specific. :P

1. Is WSC added to every hit of a multihit weaponskill? What about the off-hand? TA and/or DA procs?

2. On weaponskills that have a chance to crit, does that mean that any and all hits can crit, including off-hand and/or TA/DA procs?

3. A weaponskill has a max of 8 hits including off-hand, but is there otherwise a limit to how many times DA or TA can proc? And if so, what are the limitations (once for main hand and once for off-hand, maybe?)

Thanks!

Yes. Every hit offhand, main, multi hits all get WSC bonuses.

Any of those extra effects work for all hits on a WS. Crit works on all. Ignore Def (Man stab, Wheeling thrust etc) all hits (including offhands/multi hits etc). Atk boosts (like Viper bite) Everything like that. The only thing that doesnt cary over is the FTP on a WS. That is 1st hit and 1st hit only.

Double and triples can only proc on our main and off hand hits when /nin so a max of 2. So 2x triple, 2xdouble, 1 double+1 triple etc.

Got another one, Sneak Attack and/or Trick Attack stacked with a WS guarantees the first hit and the off-hand only, amirite? I can't recall this for sure and wiki doesn't say.

Mostly correct. It also guarantees the accuracy of any double or triple attacks that occur as well. The only swings that will ever miss in a sa or ta weapponskill are trailing hits made by the main hand; meaning 4 in multi hit and 1 in shark bite.

I see... I forgot all about double and triple attacks being guaranteed. One tends to forget these kinds of details if you don't think about it for a while, or at least I do. :P Thanks.
