Am I reading this right, and Nirnhoned will just be weapon damage? No more spell penetration and resistance stats?

If that's the case, is sharpened the way to go on a fire staff? Weapon damage would increase what light and heavy attacks do, but penetration is a better stat for PVP no?

    It'll increase the base dmg of the weapon if i believe it to be right.

    So a gold v16 won't be 13XX dmg anymore with nirn it'll be higher which will increase both spell and wpn dmg.

    I have every character level 50, both a magicka and stamina version.


    RIP my effort to get 5x v16 characters...

    It looks like a continuation in the effort to water down penetration builds. My guess is that the overall effect will be a net loss in damage.

    Someone did the math in PTS here, it has all of the math, charts, and graphs.

    Sharpened will be best damage increase for PVP and bosses, though it may be a waste on adds.

    With Thaumaturge becoming significantly weaker (even useless for some builds), you'll probably be splitting champion points between Elfborn and Erosion. Making Nirnhoned a good damage increase.
