    Backstory.... Ok, so I haven't played a melee dexxer in PvP since before my 7 year break (back in 2002). Even back then it was mostly Mage PvP for me. Back in the days of the naked hally mages I remember a change to the point in the swing at which the weapon would actually hit got tweaked.

    My question is whether that was/is still in effect and if so how is it calculated. Will the high stam person always connect first regardless of actual swing speed of the weapon/ssi/stam? For example two players: Player 1 has low dex with a very fast weapon and maxed out SSI to reach 1.25. Player two has very high dex but a very slow weapon with no SSI. I'm not worried about subsequent hits, just the first swing.

    Edit: the initial change I was thinking of was publish 5.
