should be based off how much tactics & parry a player has respectively. To take full benefit of item properties, some skill should be involved. I cant stand mages wielding -mage weapons, have the full benefit of all the weapon's properties and just load up on DCI without the use of tactics. They've already limited the # of skills a dexer can have, yet mages can fully deck out with no extra investment into skills without having a penalty. Comments, flames, etc?
