Let me know if any information is out of date, or if something needs correcting.

Burn damage, under Sienna, is notably out of date since recent patches.

Also, it would be nice if someone had a list of Weapons with high finesse multipliers:

  • 1H Sword
  • Rapier
  • Elf Swords/Daggers?
  • Tuskgor Spear
  • Executioners Sword?
  • Spear?

Also thinking of adding build sections.
