I noticed on my Destroyer's magic stat the extra magic damage from the elemental modifiers from his dual weapons. I have his Martial Weapon Expertise maxed out, so would it be a good idea to add points into Magical Weapon Expertise so the elemental modifiers on his dual weapons will be stronger, making his overall DPS stronger than ever?

I don't think so, the truth is that I'm not sure -been a long time I last played. You see, there are martial, ranged, and magic expertise skills. I suppose they refer to the weapons for the different classes, though any class can use any weapon.

I would say go ahead and test this; you can always buy a re-spec potion.

I auto-saved with my Destroyer just when he gained 2 skill points, reloaded the game, then put points in the Magic Weapon Expertise and the magic damage never went up.

So while my theory was proven false, I can still invest a point or two in the magic stat to increase the damage from any magical effects on melee (and ranged) weapons.

Thanks for your input anyway.
