Damage(X) to PTH(+) ratio for weapons (in General)

Levon [Clocked Out] July 30 2009 6:49 AM EDT

I'm curious:

Now that the damage(X) modifier no longer affects your power rating(PR), should I really be concerned about keeping a balance between damage and PTH(+)?

eg. instead of having my SoD [5x700] +50

can i now benefit by inflating the damage to SoD [5x2000] +50 ?

Why wouldn't you benefit from that? If you keep up on your dex ratio you don't really have to be all that concerned with PTH anyways.

Boosting your damage will always benefit you. However having a PTH that low will work against you if people have DBs or evasion. You could change the Ice Familiar to a ToA and put that on your SoD user, then that takes care of the PTH for you.

In fact if you have a ToA you can have your PTH at zero.

The only thing that should concern you is encumbrance :D

thanks for the help, i'm taking all three responses into consideration.. i'll balance the encumbrance between the weapon itself and the elven gear giving me the +DX.. i'll also put some more forge-time into my own DB's

as for changing the strategy, i'd like to try only physical damage as a new NCB.. i realise the current strategy isn't optimal but it was moreso "character"-based rather than "performance"-based.. the goal was to cover as much ground as I could both defensively and offensively
