    Default How to create a Dex-based unarmed build?

    I can't find anything to give dex-based damage to unarmed fighting, which seems odd as every other type of twf has that option.... am I missing something?

    You'll need ranger levels and the weapon finesse feat. Deepwood Stalker has 'Improved Weapon Finesse' which will give you the damage. Tempest will not give you the shield bonus with wraps though.

    Rogue Assassin Core tree Dagger in the Back, might give DEX to hit wit wraps (if you have the weaon finesse feat). Not sure tho

    ninja spy 1+2 (#1 at the moment doesn't' work with unarmed .even if it is pierce or slashing damage).+ something to change ur attack to piercing or slashing. such as ivy wraps(level 15 and epic versions). scorching wraps(level 4). or the studded writs u get from crystal cove(i got a level 16 one but i think u can get the pierce damage on lower ).also epic feat "vorpal strike" might work.
    i checked so far by adding piercing damage i got the damage for dex. but my to hit is still my str bonus and not my dex bonus.

    iv built my monk for dex. got a shocker when the dex was not used for the to hit bonus that was promised. can do 1 of two things. get finesse until they fix this to work as intended. or start using short swords (they changed quivering palm to work with weapons in last update. stunning fist. still need unarmed as named).

    dex > dmg with weapons doesn't mean dex > dmg with unarmed, ie no weapons.

    the only way to get unarmed dex to damage is using ivy-wraps.

    On the lamma server it was tested that both the rogue and the ranger methods did not change the damage (but they did add a tag) and that vorpral fists also did not cause dex to damage (i don't know if it added a tag). cove spiked gloves do not work.

    This is the (current) definitive answer.
