    Default Tempest Enhancement works with handwraps?

    Does the T2 Tempest core enhancement work with handwraps or are they not considered dual wielding?

    "Tempest: You gain +10% chance to make off-hand attacks when dual wielding. While you are dual wielding, you can use your dexterity modifier to hit with light melee weapons. You now treat Scimitars as if they were light melee weapons."

    Obviously Shintao Deft Strikes does work, but I'm not seeing any (Effects) feedback when I toggle between wraps and two kamas that indicate the Tempest ability is actually functioning.

    Any idea?

    Get GTWF, deft strikes and this tempest thing.
    Use lama if you don't want to build character on live.
    Equip 2 low DPS weapons and start swinging.
    If you ever notice that one of your hits didn't hit twice, it don't works.

    They don't work with wraps sadly.

    Best bet nowadays is to assume things don't work with wraps unless specifically stated.
    (in the event of something being specifically stated assume it'll be bugged somehow)

    I appeared to be always getting off hands when combining deft strikes with tempest and hand wraps. I haven't done it since prior to the updates.

    Done. Tested. 100% offhand achievable with Shintao and Tempest (or I had a really lucky 10m hitting the kobolds).

    Hope that's of use to some of you

    Post OK, following on from that, here's the build: Dwarven Ripyouasaurus

    This character is intended as a DPS freak. Reasonable trapping potential / party functionality.

    Stun the mob, rip the mobs to bit with poison/sneak attack/helpless damage, repeat. Some ranged ability to pep things up a little.

    100% offhand attack, no mercy, killer.

    Probably to be run in Primal Avatar for 5x critical damage multiplier and some self healing. Twists sense weakness, dance of flowers, legendary tactics. Defence has definitely taken a nosedive on this build so its largely going to be relying on a good offence and improved evasion to stay up (lol fail!).

    Dwarf seems like a very good choice for the build as the initial stat spread is very good and we don't have many enhancement points to spare so don't need to invest too heavily in racial. Could drop dexterity by 1/increase constitution by 1 in starting stats for same cost with no build problems.

    The rogue/monk levels towards the end can be moved around a bit to maximise skills.

    As a first rough draft, any thoughts?

    shhh actually works so that 12m/6r splits are more dps than pure monks.

    don't think is WAI though.

    Default Final Build

    Posting the final write-up of this build.

    Level split has changed. Level sequence has changed to maximise skill points (sequence now probably better suited to stoning than levelling but it makes little difference). I picked max disable over max UMD, players choice

    Dropped all ranged ability to pick up 5% extra dodge. Worth it? Probably if I only ever melee.

    Build will be running in Dreadnaught. 100% off-hand strikes. Stunned targets (which should be most things you stomp on) should be getting 50% helpless damage + 30% No Mercy damage bonus + 50% Combat Brute damage.

    Doublestrike is handled by 20% killer (temp bonus, easy to keep up), 3% artifact black dragon set bonus and 6% approx. for any random item.

    5x critical multiplier. 9d6 sneak attack damage. 5 AP's spare in the below configuration for stat balancing / more sneak attack / whatever.

    Should be moderately effective, have fun!
