    I beg to differ.

    Earl Grey could be an evil overlord but, yes, the name seems less manacing.

    Lapsang Souchong sounds the most evil to me, a scheming mandarin ever seeking to overthrow the state and impose tyranny.

    And this despite it being my favourite tea.

    I'm with you on Lapsong.

    I thought of Earl Grey too, sort of the classic evil English aristocrat who seems proper and well behaved, but is actually scheming behind the scenes to, oh not, not again! - overthrow the state and impose tyranny. I mean, soaking something in oil of bergamot?? How is that not evil?

    Bsword or short sword prof?

    Nice to know these will work again for my super niche Helm swash build though

    Now if only there were like 40% more strike through available without THF feat requirements...

    I suppose you're really after confirmation but I'm guessing short sword since that's all that was needed b4.

    If Celestia and co did get fixed properly that would be amazing. One of the most interesting concepts introduced to the game only to be buggy for years lol.

    Can't you make a weapon enchantment called "Blazing Weapon" that changes the damage flag, adds scaling damage of the same type, and all the artificer spells look at and say “Hmmm... it says Blazing weapon... I guess I won't drop those damage flags on the item.”?
    You could also make variants for all the different elemental damage types.
    Things worthy of Standing Stone going EXTREME PREJUDICE™ on.:
    • NEW - Setting Unarmed Strike back to what it was and attacking the real problem: Reinforced Fists items.
    • Fix the flipping non-proficiency penalties for Bear and Wolf wildshapes!
    • Redoing the drop rates of tomes in generic and raid loot tables.
    • Keep Lynnabel on task with updating the remaining legacy named loot to not suck.
    • Tiering the Runearms so that artificers aren’t screwed out of the advantages of Cannith Crafting in Epic levels on their signature item.

    Not an optimal fix but maybe move those "enchant weapon" buffs out of the offending Enhancement Trees and feats and replace with something else? It was so disappointing not being able to effectively wield Celestia on a Swashbuckler and have the disappointment repeated with new weapons is just opening up old wounds and making my Bard sing sad songs all the time.

    Glad that Celestia is giving strikethrough now though :-)

    The villian's name would have to be Mr. Grey.

    Earl Grey.

It is like going to a museum and bragging about how fast you made it through. Or bragging about how fast you finished a good steak.

    We'll count that as two votes for Earl Gray, which puts him in the lead.
