Overall, I agree with the changes.

Can you give us stats for the bludgeon? I'm curious how it will compare to using a whip. I still don't think it will very useful as we have few crush-weak monsters, but a bludgeon is better than a maul at least.

The dagger will only appeal to pures. If you want this item to be worth something, consider revising the stats/intended use. Pures don't even need a stab weapon because they would get higher DPS using magic against metal dragons than they would with melee anyway.

91 Slayer requirement for Cerberus is fine with me. Although 95 was more appropriate, 91 is somewhat high level.

I am still extremely wary of the description of "task refactoring". Please consult either in-game analytics or high level players before changing tasks too much. A significant increase or decrease in experience/hour could result from any update to task assignment frequencies.

You're beyond ignorant if you think the dagger only applies to pures. The bleed effect has so many uses guaranteed damage especially considering double the accuracy. The max hit with that dagger is 46, so it will bleed 8s. Do not post without doing your homework.


Since you think you know more about combat than me, explain to me (with calculations) where you would use this dagger special over an alternative weapon and whether or not there would be enough of a niche use to provide long-term value to the item.

I can provide you with the relevant formulae if you don't know them.

@mini finbar I'll address specific math later I'm at lunch on work. But I'm curious to see this "formula" because I doubt it accounts for bleeds.


I'm not trying to make it difficult for you. I'm genuinely curious how useful this dagger would be and I haven't calculated anything myself in regards to DPS with the spec vs other weapons. I was admittedly looking more at the average use (as a regular weapon) than the special attack when I made my assessment.

This also came to mind:

Why would anyone use the dagger's special attack over the bludgeon's lol? They have exactly the same special attack (very lazy on their part), the bludgeon will be obviously hit so much harder than the more accurately than the dagger, leaving little use for it.
