It's random chance. Probability does not have a memory. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gambler%27s_fallacy
Nice. Probability does not have a memory. This quote should be in every gambling anonymous handbook.

Don't you think hunters sword is a little bit... overpowerful ? I mean, I use 2 hunters sword as dual weapons, and with 265 Attack chance I basically miss 1 attack out of ten against most monsters... which makes 7 successful hits/turn !
(And when I fight against monsters with low block chance I manage to hit them 10 times per turn if they have enough HP to survive...)

Might be a good idea to rebalance this weapon uh ?

(Sorry for my bad english)

The negative BC balances the good. Personally I think it sucks as a weapon.
Sure the AP and AC bonus is great, but the negative BC hurts.
RoL + sharp steel rapier, or now that I am loving crits and the necklace of the undead,
Flagstone sword + DOSP. Once Way of the Monk is available on the next release I will most likely go unarmed.*Hint* for the devs please add one more Crystal so I can get Unarmed skill.

How much the BC hurts can depend on how much you can count on getting the kill in a single round, I would think. Are you two guys getting different results on that, or just have different comfort levels with the risk when you don't?

Maybe you should have been more careful with the ones you had ;)

The negative BC comes when the actor condition Minor Rage is triggered. -90.

Ah. Right. But then you get an additional 60AC, and 35HP. And the condition in non-stacking, so you cannot get it from two swords.

True. One -90 is still worse than double -40 from dual QSD, but the offense is much better. All in all, you need to have the right build, like anything else.

I played with the Sword of Shadow's rage for a while. It was OK, but I went back to DoSP and a BSS. Now I use DoSP and LifeTaker.

My big guy has Life Taker and FP, with a BSS to swap for the latter for crit immune. I have the DotSP kicking around, but haven't seen a reason to swap out for it in ages. All that will change with the new release, and I'll be starting over then anyway.
