Re: Just how strong is the speed brand on heavy weapons?

Very strong. So weapons take only 66% as long to swing as normal. So if your big weapon is .7, its between .4 and .5 units. You essentially get 1.5X the number of swings as you normally would. So consider it a brand that adds 50% extra damage which is not affected by any resistances, but only by AC.

I did a KoBe as a stabber. If you wake things, berserk, BIA, or trogs hand and run all work well.

Also, don't try to stab packs. Wake the things at the edge and lure them. Its tempting to get the easy kills, but it usually just ends with you being noticed by everything when you're two steps away.
