    Default Drow Ambidexterity too costly

    Ambidexterity: 2 AP per rank, 6 AP total

    Rank 1: +1 hit when DW or unarmed
    Rank 2: +1% dodge
    Rank 3: +1 damage when DW or unarmed


    Weapon specialization lines all give both +1 hit/dmg (+1 hit and +2 damage for two handers sometimes) and cost 2 AP. So, for 1 hit 2 AP is too much, same for 1 dmg.

    Uncanny dodger in Occult Slayer tree gives +1/2/3% dodge and costs 1 AP per rank. Again, 2 AP is too much.

    It should cost 1 AP per rank.

    I gave up on any of the drow racials. Either too expensive or don't work.

    It did free up a lot of points to go into my class trees though...

    Either reduce the cost, or buff it considerably. +1 hit/dmg, +1% dodge, and +1 stacking AC per rank would be worth it - and tie into the (eventual, hopefully) drow racial tempest tree.

    Lol I agree! Way too costly.. Even shortsword specialty can grant +3 to hit and +3 to damage for just 6 AP which is better than Ambidexterity itself. I would love to change current ambidexterity to % double attack improvement % on both hands with 1 or 2% dodge or AC then I'll be happy!

    Of course, I would even more happier if they fix the damn DROW bugged tree so I don't have to reset it every time I log in Drow character because it breaks every time I log off.

    If they don't want to lower the cost they could at least improve the enhancement

    Maybe something like

    Tier 1: +1 to hit
    Tier 2: +2 to hit,+1%dodge
    Tier 3: +3 to hit,+2%dodge,+1damage

    I know it would be still lacking a bit..but at least you get some improvement for all the AP spent.

    Yeah. At the momentsits too costly for what it gives. Either lower the AP cost, or give it a little something extra.

    I concur with it being overpriced. When I first saw it I was super excited. However playtesting it I find it is extremly sub-optimal to spend 6 action points for what you should really get for 2. If it were 1 point per rank I may use it but it is still a bit over priced for the effect.
