So, I was chatting with a friend today, He has a character who I beleive is a level 14 or 15 Marauder, Physical Rank I can't remember (sorry ;p ) I also created a Marauder (Rank5), however when we hit the same type of mob (star marmot), literally next to each other, He noticed that he was killing the monster slower. I was doing around 100 damage a hit, he was doing around 75ish.
He said his weapon was not beoken, I can't even see the Durability on the item screen <_<...
So I was wondering if anyone else had this sort of situation, I then noticed that the Rank needed to wield the weapon doesn't say requirement, but that Rank 1 was "Optimal" for the Axe.
Maybe the higher you are from a given optimum level, the worse you do with it? Encouraging weapon upgrades often, and I guess to keep crafters selling stuff not only every 10 levels?
Can anyone give some isnight or personal experiences related to this?
