on my magician, I've been getting used to using knives flurry alot before charging in to one hit everything. and was curious what the extent of bonus that the knives can get from my gear.

1: Do all the bonus mods on my weapons and other gear add to them?

2: does bonus damage from arcane formula add to them?

3: does skills that would normaly enhance my weapons add to them?

4: does anything else?

Everything that would affect your weapon except the actual weapon gets added to Throwing Knives. So if you have a ring that adds damage, it'll get added to your knives, but a bonus on a weapon won't get transferred.

Skills that can boost Throwing Knives:
Rogue: Blade Honing, Envenom Tree, Open Wound (I think)
Hunting: Gouge (I think)
Storm: Storm Nimbus
Earth: Earth Enchantment
Warfare: Battle Standard

I'm not positive on Open Wound & Gouge, but I'm pretty sure that as long as you're equipping the appropriate weapon then those bonuses get added to Throwing Knives as well.

Also any skill or equipment that gives +% Piercing Damage or +% Bleeding Damage will also boost your throwing knives since they deal those kinds of damage.

seems like legendary ares charm in a glove would be really good for knives...450 damage is quite a bit, even if its only 15% of the time.

edit: after testing i can confirm that ares does work.
