Steady Aim Passive

Posts: 113
I was looking at my character details, and the way it's presented:
Damage Increase from Dexterity: 500%
Damage Increase from Skills: 20%

Seems to imply that Steady Aim is just similar to +20dex, not 500% DPS * 1.2 but 520% base dps. Quite a difference. If this is really the case, this passive isn't nearly as critical as it seemed before. 20% more base damage doesn't mean a whole lot later on when you have +70% dmg from +70dex on items. And that's just level 30ish, it'll drop off more and more as the amount of dex increases.

This also means that archery passive skill sucks if you are using a bow. Hmmm if your assumption is correct this would be huge.

Actually this isn't how the skill works, fortuntely. The 20% damage buff is applied after all your other damage buff such as the % of dexterity. At lvl 58 I do 7000 without this skill active and 8200 damage with it.
