Hey - was thinking of spinning up a kensai/acrobat. Would the bonuses to criticals from TA Staff Specialization stack with Kensai Keen Edge? And would Kensai tactics stack with TA Trip Focus?

Cheers!

You can only take Tier 5 enhancements from one tree. Staff Specialization and Keen Edge are both Tier 5 enhancements, so you can't even take both to worry about stacking.

AFAIK, the tactics bonuses stack, though.

EDIT: IIUC, Pulverizer doesn't stack with Keen Edge or Staff Spec (they're all typed as competence bonuses), so bear that in mind when planning your EDs.

Wait, what? Doesn't that mean Balizarde is +2 crit range (after Keen/IC) ahead of Mornh on a Kensai? That should put it ahead of Mornh despite the lower base damage die, regardless of ED.

Oh bullocks :P Good to know though, wish the wiki said something about that in each enhancement line. My poor Barb alt will sadly never combine FB and RAV crit bonuses while raging either :(
