Just higher value.

 

They very much do not suck. Most damage multipliers stack, and most tough enemies have significant damage threshold, so those talents are very valuable.

 

To break it down: suppose your base damage is 10, and you're fighting an enemy with DR 10. That means that your normal attack will do 0 damage. 

 

Take Soul Whip (*1.2), Enchant (*1.75), and Vulnerable Attack (DR bypass 6), and suddenly you're doing 17 damage.

Yes it does. 

 

The actual calculation is somewhat more complex because of the variable damage range, grazes, and crits, but the same principle applies. The damage multipliers matter much more than you'd think, largely due to DR and grazes. They're valuable. Anything that buffs ACC is at least as or even more valuable.

I'm really confused. You said that it just uses the higher value, then that most of them stack. Can you elaborate? If I get the 1.15x damage boost on top of a exceptional weapon and some good Might, am I doing 1.15 x 1.3 x 1.3 = 1.9435x the base damage or am I doing some other amount of damage?
