From WoM 2.0 patch notes:
Introduced an ignore stagger reduction to light smiter attacks (1h axe, axe-shield, elf 1h axe, and various 1h swords/falchion combo finishers). Note that dual wields are exempt from this. Should help with staggering foes across difficulties more easily.
Does this mean that light smiter attacks get the full damage boost regardless of enemy stagger count?
Do “light smiter attacks” only cover the light attacks and not the heavy (charged) attacks of 1h axe, axe-shield, and elf 1h axe?
What exactly is meant by “various 1h swords/falchion combo finishers”? What exactly are these attacks? Are these the last attack in the light attack chain only (i.e. the overhead strike)?
Also, the crowbill’s attack patterns are similar to the 1h axes of the other characters. Is it supposed to be not included here?
