    Default EK Spellsword

    quick question ...

    does the dmg added from Spellsword on EK benefit from spellpower and spell crit chance?

    At level 12, EK core give 3d4 spell dmg type from spellsword, it comments that eldritch strike benefits from spell power, but no comment on spellsword.

    Anyone know?

    No: only the Force damage from the two Cleave attacks benefit from Spellpower (but not crit chance IIRC); the imbues are static.

    Eldritch Knights aren't terrible! All they need is a defense, and an offense, and some rule changes.

    The tree is fine for what it actually is: defensive buffs plus arcane spell failure reduction to make it easier to wear armor on an arcane caster. That's just not what the EK tree is sold as doing. The melee attacks, weapon imbues, and doublestrike bonuses can easily fool you into thinking it's a DPS tree if you're careless.
