Salut,

1.

I have a question concerning the stacking of critical hit multipliers

My 13 rogue / 6 monk / 1 druid build has

Staff Specialization +1 to critical hit multiplier
Overwhelming critical +1 to critical hit multiplier
Earth Stance +1 to critical hit multiplier

I am using Stout Oak Walking Stick with a x3 multiplier

So do all these bonuses stack for a total of x6?

2.

Does Thief Acrobatics stack with melee alacrity for a total of +30% to melee attack speed (with quarterstaffs)?

3.

Does No Mercy stack with Sense of Weakness from FotW for a total of +60% additional damage to helpless targets?

4.

Does A Dance of Flowers apply to quarterstaff damage for an extra 1.5W?

Result of my own test is that all bonuses to critical hit multiplier stack

Roll.............................................. ...17.................18...................19..... .............20
.
Damage with
.
SS, Earth Stance,............................400............ ...400.................600................600
OC
.
SS, OC..........................................equal. .............equal...............500.............. .500
.
SS, Earth Stance............................equal........... ...equal...............equal.............equal
.
OC, Earth Stance...........................no crit.............no crit..............500..............500


Conclusion: All bonuses stack and work as intended.

Have you checked out the Big F'kn Stick (https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthread.php/158960-Big-F-n-Stick-Build) Thread? All you need about quarterstaves is there.
I am fairly certain Thief Acrobatics stack with melee alacrity/haste, but check out the specialists in the thread there

Yes, all of these stack, but pulverizer from LD does not stack with SS for crit range sadly.

I believe so. Would also stack with haste or speed (I-XV), but none of theose (haste, speed, alacrity) stack with each other)


3.

Can't help on this one, don't know.


4.

Yes, even without monk levels (so long as you would qualify for "centered", i.e. not wearing armor, not encumbered, etc)
