>>1 I ran some quick DPS LBG pierce up test and it looks like from my early data pierce 2 +10% and pierce 3 +20%, so p3 is well worth it... my p1 results were similar to p2 which i'm assuming is human error so i may do more testing but it's looking like p3 is the way to go!

>>1 I ran some LBG test in the training room w/ rhanopols helm (pierce up level 2) and saw no difference... i'll have to run some more controlled test before concluding it's a broken skill but give it a try and see what numbers you get.

      It is smart to buy a switch for several huge games, MHR being one of them.

      Player list provides all of their equipment information. But honestly that doesn't really matter mid hunt. Don't add DPS trackers. It gets really annoying hunting with someone thats just shouting out the damage numbers all hunt
