    Am I alone in discovering the Assassin Honed Weapons property does about 20%-30% extra damage?

    I'm curious if anybody else has tested them and have come to the same conclusion or different.

    So far these seem to not be worth the effort or they would be rampant in PvP. I have not seen or heard of anybody using them except for a post on these threads saying they used an Assassin Honed Comp. Bow for running shots.

    you are correct about the damage.
    keep in mind that they only hit the assassin honed damage when the persons back is to you.

    but where this saves you... or the perk i guess you can call it is that you dont have to have DI on the weapon.

    which, and lets be honest, for most of us who PVP we are at the cap allready.

    but like you said it is really nice when you are chasing someone down and they are running, so your shooting them in the back as they crawl away.

    Thanks for the feedback. Too bad... it was a neat idea.
