I rolled up a Aasimar Scourge Tempest Vistani. Going pure ranger, TWF with Daggers. I'm at lvl 16 right now and using The Barovian Dagger and the Syranian Dagger. Strength Based.

I'm getting some strange DPS numbers. About 1/2 the time my 1st number averages in the mid 70's. Then inexplicably...it will drop to the mid 50's. Nothing changes. I always run with full guild buffs (not the cargo hold buffs however). I never swap out gear. No changes in buffs.

I've wracked my brain and can't figure out what is happening.

I can test on the Mage Fire Cannon on my ship and 1st number consistently hits mid 70's. Then I run out to a quest or wilderness and I might get 50's for a while...then it will jump to 70's for awhile...then back to 50's for awhile.

Is it possible that Vistani and Tempest don't play well together?

I have figured out similar ssue when I was trying hits on Guild dummy.

Anyhow I have Vistani but not Tempest.

Are you using Vistani Fortune for the random buffs?

It may be that or TWF option at higher tier of Vistani somehow blinking the effect. ( was reported to have issues before ? )...Or simply something wrong about Test dummies...

Are you rotating blessed blades strike with your attacks, as that will increase your base damage by 10 for the 10 sec duration after the strike lands. I haven't tested, but if the strike misses maybe the buff is missing is because it doesn't apply if the BB strike attack misses?

I do and I do notice when that is affecting my DPS...is this case...it is not associated with Vistani Fortune.

I have a thrower version as Drow, Swash/Vistani/Occult and its survival and hit on the run ability is unmatched. Very easy and fun to play.


Bard, Paladin, Ranger still seems much more relaible then other physical classes (Fight/Bard/Rogue except Mech) which aim melee power and style and sadly not comparable to the Specialists.


(Back to semi tank semi dps bulds with an Horc lately at some other random server...Original Physical melee classes Fight and Barb certainly need a fighting styles, skills and saves pass although one of them seems to have healing amp and extra hitpoints and the other has feats; thyre not comparable to what specialist give...Anyhow both are better at getting feats early and plenty aswell as adding burst damage...still not more survivable)



Long story short, Vistani amongst all, adds extra survivalibility, nice double strike/shot and a free, strong cone attack calculated by character level. Even without dagger focus it is a nice Universal tree.
