    I always used a hit area effect on my sampire whirlwind weapons so I didn't pay much attention but I am seeing the same issue. I also tested my 119 bushido lumberjack sword char and he is not getting the bushido whirlwind damage effect or his lumberjack random damage bonus on whirlwind either.

    Add it to the growing list of Melee nerfs happening right now.
    Seems they want everyone to become Mage/tamers once more.

    Sad day........

    This is starting to get worrisome and annoying.
    It would be much better to bump mages and tamers power in PvM than to go and nerf the warriors again and again.
    This causes the game to become boring and annoying.

    Looks like a typical Bungie move: Take something away thats been in the game for years, don't say a word to not draw attention, and if it's addressed we'll get the standard "Its a game balancing issue".
    Considering there is no cap on SDI in PvM, I'd have to say exactly correct Sir.
    I :heart: you DEVS but you can't steal one of a dog's favorite chew toys with out getting bit.
    Please fix this.

    It's probably a bug.

    yea, the primary target should have been hit for 20-30 as well ! lol

    Btw, Bushido skill has nothing to do with Whirlwind... only Frenzied Whirlwind.

    We know that wasn't a bug, and like I said before, I don't even think it was change because of any chiv spells, but because of mirror image.

    Bushido is supposed to give a damage bonus to a regular whirlwind. Damage Bonus= (Bushido/60*Number of opponents)^2

    Where have you heard/read such a thing? That would make everything around you die in one whirlwind even without hit area with 4+ valid targets.

    There's no way that's true.

    Bushido - UOGuide, the Ultima Online encyclopedia

    I remember the bonus damage on WW back when I was running bushido. That's how it always was as far as I can remember.

    Yea, that looks like a possible typo as Frenzied whirlwind gains an obvious bonus damage to it from bushido and isn't mentioned at all.


    Though I've never noticed, however it's capped at 100% and probably doesn't stack with 100% damage increase from items (All my suits are 100% DI for pvm)., that would also explain why I never noticed the bushido whirlwind bonus.

    Interesting nonetheless.

    We still have them raised and waving from the other Chiv post that they still haven't bothered to give us the reason for.

    I'd still love to hear the explanation on the combat skill casting change. :/

    There's definitely supposed to be a damage bonus, though I don't know how it's calculated. I doubt it's that high but it's definitely noticeable especially in a champ spawn.
