Doublestrike grants a character a chance to make an additional attack with their main hand weapon any time they make a main hand melee attack. The additional roll is made on the target of the initial attack. Doublestrike only applies to melee attacks. (Similar effect for ranged attacks is called Doubleshot.)
Doublestrike was introduced as part of the Update 5 combat changes. Many attack speed bonuses were converted to Doublestrike effects at that time.
- Doublestrike affects your main-hand weapons. Your off-hand weapons can only doublestrike if Perfect Two Weapon Fighting or Dervish are chosen.
- Increasing Doublestrike above 100% does not provide any additional benefit.
