Anyone know what the enhancement change is exactly on "Augments Dual Wield" when you get the set bonus? I can't find anything on wiki about it. I'm assuming it just decreases delay even more. Is it 5% for the first 2 and another 5% for each of the 3 pieces you add after it (excluding the head which would have another "enhance Dual Wield").

I just got my second piece (feet/legs) but haven't had time to test yet.

Not sure as I havent completed any of the af3 quests. But I did read in the war forums that they though the augments double attack increased damage on DA and not increased DA percentage.

Be very interested to find out though.

Yeah, found something on BG about it. Looks like it's offhand only for the DA and from testing it may mess up other multi-hit weapons in offhand (meaning prevent them from hitting more than 2x at all...not just when DA procs)...i'll test it out with kclub when i get a chance.

I believe you misinterpreted their results concerning proc interaction with OAX. It was a test to see if OAX and set bonus procs stacked, ie if you could proc both on the same round and get 3 hits with an OAT, 4 with an OA2-3, etc. This is not possible. Which takes priority over the other is unknown at this time.

? Does it even stack with anything else? Like will it raise the total % of double attack in the offhand equal to DA%+Augments DW%? Does it make double attack sometimes triple attack in the offhand (DA procs but Augments DW does too), etc.

I don't frequent BG so I don't see things like this.

I doubt it would do that, it is probably just offhand DA+ X%.

Doesn't cause triple attacks. The set bonus operates in one of two ways. Either:

1) It's simple DA+x% and stacks with other DA. In this case, 5/5 set bonus and 15% DA would yield an apparent 25% DA rate on your offhand.
2) It's a form of OAT and does not stack with DA traits/equip. In this case, 5/5 set bonus and 15% DA would yield a total 23.5% more hits on your offhand.

The sample size on the test to establish what the set bonus actually does was too small to establish which of the two is actually occurring.
