Talk:Handwrap

From DDO wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Unarmed Strike[edit]

Wondering if it is confirmed that handwraps slow your unarmed strike. And how/where this was confirmed. How much slower is it? I put another post on Talk:Unarmed Strike to be sure this is noticed. Jandragarious01 (ContributionsMessage) 20:06, August 11, 2012 (EDT)

Lesser Parrying[edit]

This page mentions Lesser Parrying, does this effect exist in game, and if so, what is the bonus? Please link a screenshot so I can adjust the Template:Parrying appropriately. Thank you -- ShoeMaker (Contributions Message) 13:40, July 10, 2012 (EDT)

No, the page mentions the lesser "Parrying" effect (lesser compared to "Greater Parrying", not named "Lesser Parrying"). Quote from the page:

Handwraps with these following properties currently don't exist in the game.

  • Greater Parrying suffix (The lesser "Parrying" suffix is present on same handwraps)

Lesser Parrying was not mentioned and doesn't exist in-game. Backley (ContributionsMessage) 14:12, July 10, 2012 (EDT)

I understand the difference. Thank you Backley... Big Grin -- ShoeMaker (Contributions Message) 14:15, July 10, 2012 (EDT)



This article seems more inclined in talking of the programming/game mechanic detriments (a necessary evil), rather than noting as well the popular types, rares and uniques. I'll add in sections that provide that info. --Spencerian 23:17, January 30, 2011 (EST)

Heh, kinda funny that we both went to edit it at about the same time! I fixed several redlinks and some wording; nice job on the article itself! - LrdSlvrhnd 01:30, January 31, 2011 (EST)

this page is getting a bit long, try shortening maybe? --yoko5000 12:53, April 22, 2011 (EDT)

Can you add info on how/if critical strikes work on handwraps?[edit]

How do critical strikes process on handwraps, if they do at all? Do they only process on a natural 20? Do attributes like Ribcracker do extra damage? What about disruption or banish? Is a Seeker +6 of Improved Ribcracker a good combination for a pet collar or is it worthless because there's no critical? Is there any additional damage done by Holy Burst compared to Holy?

I have the same question about a pair of Thundering handwraps. They give the bonus damage on a critical. /advice says it works off monk critical, but I have no idea.

Using Handwraps with Pale Master Zombie Form[edit]

  • Is this beneficial? How does the +1(w) work with handwraps? I'm assuming it is very basic and straightforward, in other words, no big deal, use them, but can someone put in a little section on Pale Master + Handwraps with correct information? tyvm ;>jamvaru (ContributionsMessage) 17:19, February 12, 2015 (EST)
    • This is likely better answered in the unarmed combat page rather than the handwrap page. To answer your questions, however, it (should) increase your W damage of your unarmed combat. Habreno (ContributionsMessage) 13:44, February 13, 2015 (EST)

Obsolete[edit]

  • Whole article seems obsolete after U33 and need be re-write. — previous unsignedIcon tooltip.pngPlease sign posts using ~~~~ comment by Ulfo ( c |d| r| b) at 12:23, January 14, 2017 (UTC)
    • Strongly disagree. Despite handwraps now being weapons, the article as a whole is still very accurate. While a couple points could use clarification/fixing, the article does not need a rewrite. Habreno (ContribsMessage) 17:29, January 15, 2017 (EST)
    • I've moved some stuff around into a new 'History' section. Feel free to discuss the change or move stuff around. --Cru121 (ContribsMessage) 03:34, January 16, 2017 (EST)

Linking to the Category:Handwraps Page[edit]

  • People looking for the Named/Unique items are often redirected to this page. I have been trying to add the link, but have yet to figure out how to it acts differently to other links examples: (1 Category:Handwraps) (2 [[1]]). (User_talk:John34404) 03:34 January 18, 2020 (CDT)
    • To link a category, you place a colon in front of the link. Otherwise, it adds the category to the page. That's the correct link: [[:Category:Handwraps]]. I've corrected your link above because it places the current talk page in the Handwraps category. Faltout (ContribsMessage) 08:39, January 18, 2020 (EST)
