    Default Vorpal Strikes/Manslayer effet/CE

    Wondering how Vorpal strikes is interacting with both these? Anyone using it currently with either manslayer or CE? Im about to swap back to Vorpal strikes but wanted to check first. thanks

    My experience with the vorpal granted from assassin III and manslayer is that the damage stacks. As in, above 1000 HP you'll do 100+100 damage instead and below you'll get the same instant kill.

    One thing I've wondered is the order of damage, I kind of think that the 100 or 200 damage is done before the instant death check.

    CE? Not sure what that is.

    Ok so damage may stack for seperate 100 pt damages. As far as CE it fits into the context as it and vorpal strikes are toggle abilities...was wondering if toggling vorpal strikes effected toggling of CE.

    Default info

    Vorpal strikes (the epic monk feat) is NOT a stance, just a toggle like slowfall.
    Manslayer, (as in the ring of the stalker) stacks with vorpal fists, each doing a separate 100 damage.
    Sadly i do not remeber witch one triggers first. (i think manslayer, but not sure)

    Yeah stacks with manslayer damage wise and is rather awesome. Also the 100 damage is done before the death
    effect, not that that matters really (probably just coder decided easier to have a subclause then two different
    ones).

    Does that mean you get instant kills vs enemies with 1100 or 1200 HP or lower depending on the amount of sources that you have or is it always just 1000 HP?

    you have to put it on your hotbar now and like PA turn it on everytime you log on.

    Works beautifully, I can safely say it is the coolest feat ever coded.

    To OP:

    again like people have stated the effects do stack. You'll see both procing on the same vorpal if they are above 1000 hp.
    Real life is a worse grind than any MMO.

    This is a very good question. Unfortunately it's one that is comparatively hard to test since you need to be paying
    attention to the mobs hp and have the proper MM entry unlocked. I do a decent amount of scroll farming in fathom
    though and since Ehard has become a joke, I do it on my monk now as he has been slightly more fun to play
    for me then my caster lately. So I will keep an eye out on those sahuagin life bars.
