Fencer broken?Follow

So Fencer seems neat.

TP bonus on WS? Improved crit rate? Sounds good.

However, I'm not actually seeing any TP bonus of any sort on WS. I've tried it with Joyeuse/Spirits Within and Maneater/Rampage, nothing in offhand.


Is anyone else noticing a difference - or lack of difference - from Fencer?

Try it with a 2 handed weapon, i.e. your Great Axe.

Fencer:"Increases rate of critical hits when wielding with the main hand only. Grants a TP bonus to weapon skills."

meaning you cant dual weild with it, you have to be single weild a 1 handed weapon. SE prolly wants us to use sword/shield more lol

It doesn't mean you have to have a 1 handed weapon, just from reading the description. Main hand only can very well just mean "Main" equipment slot only for a weapon. If the OP is seeing no difference with a Sword or Axe in main hand with no off handed weapon or shield, it's worth a chance to test.

Or maybe we're not even supposed to wear a shield.

I wouldn't be surprised if the bonus was 1% increased crit rate and 0.1 fTP.

Or less.

test with sneak attack fast blade vs lv1 bunnies (this will, obviously, test for TP bonus only). tell me your total STR, total DEX, and the damage of your sword, and at what TP you fire the WS (100% is best). depending on the damage you get, you'll see if you're getting a) no bonus at all, b) hagun-like TP bonus (100%TP), c) some other TP bonus (10%, 50%, etc), or d) a flat fTP bonus. will have to check at varying TP% distinguish b/w (d) and (b) or (c). i'd be surprised if this test hasn't already been done on BG, but i'm not interested enough to check.
