    Lightbulb Touch of Death

    I've noticed that Touch of Death is no longer landing double strikes. Does anyone know if this is WAI or just a bug?
    If it is in fact WAI, this is a significant nerf to dark monk dps.

    I agree. Its already nerferd by being available at L12 when it was vailable at L9 before. On the good side, the DCs for Quivering Palm are better now.

    Default Will test later...

    I will personally test this in the near future, but my best friend has a dark monk main, and has reported hitting 3 times on ToD since the update (Offhand, and doublestrike). So i don't think they nerfed that. Again though, I will check it later. Also, I can live with getting ToD at 12 in exchange for the shintao DR breakers

    Meh, DR breaking is not a problem. ToD at L9 was often an instant kill. Gonna miss that.

    meh, at level 9 about 90% of the time i go to stun something and it dies from the offhand hit. ToD was overkill, and more or less a ki dump until about 12. Least when I've played monk. It does appear to be hitting on offhand, and double-strike hits though. I tested it a few times yesterday.

    I have not gotten a single ToD to land on a double strike and my dark monk has a consistant 27% double strike chance and 127% chance when shadow double is activated. However you friend got it to land, I would love to learn.

    TBH, I think ToD is not worth taking if you are planning to run epic content. It does not hit hard enough to justify using it and epic mobs just shrug it off.

    I played with it on Lamannia on a L28 monk. My conclusion was that monks playing epic content can pretty much skip the tier 5 enhancements whether Ninja Spy or Shintao. Did not try Henshin tree, quarterstaves are not my thing with monks.

    So, from my perspective, whether it has been nerfed or not is largely irrelevant as I don't see it as being especially viable beyond heroic content in any case.

    Did you checked the Shintao's Empty Hand Mastery? Raising unarmed die from d6 to d8 is +1 damage per [W].

    I want DDO to be a better game. Those are my personal suggestions on: Ammunition, Archmage, Combat Stances, Deities, Dispel Magic, Epic Destiny Map, Fast Healing, Favor, Favored Enemy, Half-elf Enhancements, Monk Kensai, Monk Stances, Past Life, Potency, Potions, Ranger Spells, Summons, Tiered Loot.

    except from the fact that when landing up to four strikes for a min of 250 each and upwards to 750 each (or more with curse of the void/demonweb effects) pre U19.

    3000 (or more) damage on a single attack is irrelevant?
