2h_Sword_Expertise - Icytroll/bleedFAQ GitHub Wiki

Construction site, move along.

Mechanically there's no difference between BR and 2H sword expertise, they both work off of base dmg when converting dmg to a bleed via their given percentages.

Interactively though, it seems like whenever you're using a skill where a weapon can be assigned, 2H sword expertise does work on the direct damage that the skill does, anything beyond that and 2H sword expertise doesn't work. On the other hand BR works on virtually all damage that you yourself do (exceptions being Rupture dmg and Skullbreaker, as well as CotA for some reason).

Notable examples:

  • Ground stomp can't have a weapon assigned to it, so you don't get a bleed via 2H sword expertise, whereas BR will cause a bleed if you're enraged when using Ground Stomp.
  • Kick dmg does not work with 2H sword expertise, whereas it will cause a BR bleed.
  • Earthquakes will not cause 2H sword expertise, whereas each EQ tick causes a BR bleed.
  • Dust Devils will not cause 2H sword expertise, whereas each DD hit causes a BR bleed.
  • Paingorgers echo dmg does not work with 2H sword expertise, while BR does.
