      This set isn't bad at all. It works for ALL abilities that deal physical damage (class or weapon). While, not good for Night Blades, it is excellent for a Stamina Templar.

        Is this set good or bad... I feel like its actually good if you work WITH IT. So as a Stam Sorc, I'm getting benefits on my Hurricane.... and... umm... yeah thats it, but I do get benefits to my Dual-Wield/Two-Handed, and Most bow abilities! So yeah! ... I guess this is more of a Stamplar's love-song.

        • 2018-08, Summerset This set affects ONLY physical damage skills. It has NO any effect on poison or disease damage skills, such as: Lethal Arrow (bow), Poison Injection (bow), Acid Spray (bow), Killer's Blade (NB), Relentless Focus bow proc (NB), Power Extraction (NB) and others. Not in tooltip changes, not in actual damage, tested. And because of this, this set is hardly "One of the best sets for physical damage dealers.", at least for NBs.

              XBL Novidian, if anyone wants to farm DC1/2 for this. I have yet to get any jewelry or daggers. Lots of Netch's/Truth*****, though. Frustrating, but I think this set will be worth it. I want to pair with my Hundig's.
