    This was in the update notes. It doesn't show Combat Skills, It'll show defensive ones like Parry, But not offensive ones since they're technically a different stat.

    You can see the effect of the combat skills+ by looking at your attack values with and without the ilvl weapons.

    It's annoying and everyone seems to get confused by it. There are good reasons not to do it this way.

    So the +skill is there only for raising your dmg?
    Weird. What about older +skill items?
    They physicaly raising your skill level unlocking WSs.
    With Dowser's Wand (GEO) I still have 241 club skill with or without it.
    Which makes me unable to use 290 skill point WS Flash Nova.

    It's a stupid and confusing system. If they wanted to boost damage they should have just added weapons with higher damage. Or create an additional stat which gives damage +accuracy for the given weapon, much like "iridescence" is the effect of the elemental staves.
